15 Digital Point-and-Shoot Cameras Used By Pro Photographers
April 14, 2011Posted by on
This is an interesting article where the author has asked a number of photographers which point and shoot (compact) camera they use. Mine by the way is a Canon G10
“Do professional photographers really use point-and-shoot cameras? Surprisingly, yes.
Using Facebook and Twitter, I just completed a little of my own unscientific research. I wanted to find out which digital point-and-shoot is the camera-of-choice among professional photographers. Just over 50 professional photographers responded, and most of them are included here.
Some well-known photographers responded to my call, including: Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers David Hume Kennerly and Brian Smith; “Strobist” David Hobby; Washington DC photojournalist David Burnett; Outdoor/Adventure photographer Corey Rich; and Lifestyle/Advertising photographer Tom Hussey.
I asked each photographer the same questions: What camera do you use; what gadgets and add-on accessories do you use; do you have any pro-level advice for others using this camera; and I asked them to supply a picture they shot with the camera.”

I want to learn photography and start taking pictures but not sure what camera to buy for the best results. Have you got any advise where I could start?
Hi Blaine, I think it depends on the level that you wish to work at but if you have any intentions towards taking photography seriously then I would recommend you buy a DSLR and take a course so that you understand how to use it. have a look at this link http://photo.tutsplus.com/articles/the-ultimate-guide-for-buying-your-first-digital-slr/
