"Would it do any damage if I nipped out the bit where the tendrils grow?"

You would need to elaborate on this, Denno.

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.

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.

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.

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