For some time my favorite pocket camera has been Konica Minolta's DiMAGE Xg; I never go anywhere without it being tucked into its matching leather case. One of the features of the Xg that I like best, besides its ability to make great photographs, is its compact size.

The low, harsh light of late day played unmercifully on the withered body of an old woman, reflecting on the face of the beautiful baby she carried on her back. Eugene Richards saw the tall, angular 80-year-old woman, a rare sight in a drought-ridden land where people die long before their time.

Now that the Shutterbug Forums have been online for the last six months I can honestly say that they have been a success. We tried various topics and categories (and we're always open to your suggestions) and have honed them down to what we consider essential areas of interest.
