Enthusiast compact camera 2013 roundup: Digital Photography Review

Stepping up in the compact spectrum are cameras that tend to be aimed at photographers who want full photographic control. Good low-light performance, ability to shoot Raw, and accessible manual controls make these compacts a portable alternative to more bulky DSLRs.

Not much going on here recently; last time I published a photo on this blog was in January. Here’s why:

Posts to this blog used to be generated in a semi-automated process.
