    I continue to be plesantly surprised as to the quality of results that can be delivered by a $7 disposable camera.

    It may annoy lens-snobs no end, but all lenses (even the 3-element plastic variety costing, say, $0.55 to manufacture) can look pretty good at f/13 with ISO 800 film printed to 4x6.

    I've verified firsthand that you'll get better results from such a setup than if you had spent, say, $500 on an EOS IX and an EF 24mm f/2.8 and loaded it with the same ISO 800 film (in APS size) and printed to the same size. Except for the extreme corners, perhaps.

    I use my dig. camera for only dig imaging only for it is intended for it, not for photography. Should I emphase it with golden letters?
