Yes, yes, yes ... I'm jumping high to the sky!!!!!
Mine was very similar to that photo - 8 MP compact Olympus camera. I think I've made great results with it. And I won't stop using it. It will stay always in my bag for some unexpected occasions.
For all newbies (as me),
don't give up if you still don't have some great camera! No matter what you're using, the big thrill is shooting and learning. Results will come. (Well you'll have a lot of rejections but either way you can't learn from your mistakes).
Here are my statistics:
8 MP compact camera - 8 months with stock photography, 8 stock sites, 200-1200 photos in portfolios in each site, almost 1000 sold files (till now), and around 2500 $ earned.
I think it's great for a compact.
But now it's time for upgrade.
Just don't lose the faith and .... have fun!!!
Merry Christmass for all of you!
