I have been showing these pictures round to see what people prefer. In theory the most modern camera should win but in fact is was the oldest. Which possibly shows that something else is more important then how modern the camera is.

It can truly be said that we have never had it so good. The most modern cameras may make life easier and pictures easier to take but when it comes to image quality the improvements are now very small. Its more important to choose a camera that suites you and the sort of pictures you take, and most important of all, one you enjoy using.
