What my eye did spy, and the sensor did capture.

The Stormy Sky image was taken with my trusty 6MP Kodak Z650.
It's my preferred unit for technical work, travels everywhere with me, and shows signs of extreme use. It's about 7 years old now, but is still very serviceable. (it's done about 80 000 images)
One reason for using this camera so extensively is the exceptional image quality for a reasonably compact 6MP unit.
It's slightly bigger brother, the Z710 (7.1MP) is lousy by comparison.
Also, the Kodak has proper PASM modes, which most compacts don't have.

One thing I would have preferred when I took that particular image would have been my Fuji (or Canon), with it's wide angle lens.
The best that Kodak can manage is 38mm.

The Tree-lined drive way was imaged by the Fuji, albeit at the 50mm setting.

Moral of thew story: A "better" camera is not always a solution. It's a tool like anything else.
What matters is how you use that tool.
