Photographers love their advanced and expensive gear; it makes our jobs much easier and can produce some absolutely stunning results in the right hands. But what can you accomplish with a $79 camera that's over a decade old? The results might surprise you.
Coming to you from Toma Boncu of Photo Tom, this great video follows him as he shoots with an old Canon PowerShot camera from 2007 that he found on Amazon for $79. I have to admit that I had a soft spot for this, as I had a very similar model that I learned a lot with back then. I always enjoy these types of challenges, as they strip everything down to the fundamentals of technique and creative vision, and sure enough, that's exactly what we see on display here. Toma also makes a very interesting point about leaving more advanced interchangeable lens cameras to professionals and recommending bridge cameras to passionate amateurs. It's a great reminder of how strong fundamentals can take you far. Check out the video above to see how the Canon performed and to hear his full thoughts.
