Our hero is down for the count and given the prices of electronics it is hardly worth fixing versus obtaining a new one. 21rst century manufacturing still requires forbiddingly priced 19th century repair. At first we were very upset as one expects somewhat longer life from an object that costs so much but we have cooled. Actually, compared to canvas, paint and the traditional artist tools, the price isn't bad. Nobody yells "we wuz robbed" when the $160 tube of cerulean blue runs out.
The pocket camera is a recorder of what amuses, amazes or is simply unexpected. So as requiem, we show you some of our favorites; shots that would otherwise have been missed, capturing the moments that wouldn't be bothered with but fleeting capture art.
