With all this talk of high end kit lately I thought I'd start a thread for people to post their best pictures taken with "lesser" kit. Be it an older entry level DSLR and kit lens, compact camera, phone camera, box brownie what ever. Post the piccy then post what kit it was taken on and if possible the EXIF.

Will be really interesting to see what people have managed to squeeze out of their kit. I'm sure there'll be some great pics shown, can't wait to see them!

One to start you off, female duck using my Canon S90 compact when I first got it 1/125 sec F4.9 ISO 200, 105mm equiv .

I have an old Minolta digital compact camera. I bought in 2001 it had a 2.3 mega pixel. I will have a look and see if there are any photos from it in my " stock".

These are awsome Carmen
Not me, Linda, she knows how to use that kit lens for sure, unless you're meaning the thread, these are great, sure there will be many more.
