digital point-and-shoot

This was a Canon top-tier point-and-shoot camera from 2011. It has a zoom lens that goes from 5.2mm to 26mm, which has a full-frame equivalence of 24mm to 120mm. The lens opens up to f/2 at the wide end, which was unusual for p&s cameras at the time, which is why I purchased this camera. But the performance never held up to my expectations, and I was continually frustrated by this camera. I gave it a fair shot, so it's not like I wasn't trying, but this camera was never dependable enough to travel with it alone. So I sold it.

Here are some of my favorite photos I shot using this camera.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
