Really nice shots, fidget....obviously taken with a good camera, mind if I ask which?

It's a compact Sony cybershot.12megapixels. We bought it with a marine housing for chasing whalesharks, about 5 years ago. It's a good size for shoving in a pocket or handbag..

Thanks...pretty impressive.

It has a Carl Zeiss lens, which would explain the crispness of your shots.

Yes, some of the Sony ones don't have the carl zeiss lens , or they didn't. I've always liked Sony videos,  and the marine housings are good, so we went with that. OH has a big Canon SLR and ridiculously expensive lenses, but its just too much hassle to carry around all the time.  I just bang everything on automatic, point and press. It has a macro button for close ups, and telephoto/wide angle, and with a whale shark, you need the wide angle!! Its pretty old now, bought in 2008 I think. I would buy another like it though, I think the megapixels have gone up a lot since.

Thanks, fidget....with results like that there is a case for a quality point & shoot camera.

People (encouraged by the camera makers) seem to be obsessed by the number of pixels, when it really down to the quality of the sensor & lens......I've seen stunning shots taken with a 7m pixel camera.

These will blow up to A4, and I doubt I'll need anything bigger than that.

Quite, I have a small point & shoot Nikon, it has 16m pixels and would be hard pressed to enlarge to A4 without pixilation.
