A riot is an ungly thing… undt, I tink, that it is chust about time ve had vun. – Inspector Kemp from Young Frankenstein

Trying to make a point and shoot do what a DX format DSLR can do today. Using a Canon G12 set on manual at 100ISO 25oth of a second at f5.6, one old Vivitar 283, a set of Cowboy Studio radio poppers (because god knows what the voltage coming off the bottom of a 30+ year old 283 is) and a Lumiquest large foldable softbox diffuser I came pretty close to my goal. I’d been curious what the newer generation of P&S cameras were capable of (and as I write Canon has just released the G1X large sensor compact camera) and aside from the dubious subject matter, who some have equated to either a mad zeppelin pilot or a mad vintage bike racer, the image came out looking pretty cool.
