Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

Outside the Museum at Night

Posted in photography by Jason Gray on November 9, 2009


It’s amazing what a little, digital, point-and-shoot camera can accomplish, especially given that its sensor is so much smaller than it’s full-frame or APS-C-sized counterparts. I shot these with a Canon, PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Elph, 8MP, point-and-shoot camera. The 8 mega pixels might be an asset however, considering that they receive more light per individual 10 pixels than same sized sensors with 10 or 12 mega pixels, thereby reducing some noise (short explanation). In any case, here are some night photos that I made with the camera by manually adjusting its settings. You definitely cannot get the flexibility of adjustment that you could on a DSLR, but you can get somewhat close. I probably could have improved on almost all of these by employing a tripod, but who wants to carry around one of those if you are explicitly trying to enjoy the convenience of a point-and-shoot?  Enjoy:
