Hey guys,

So recently I've been getting more and more into photography, unfortunately though I have the worst camera around.

A Canon Powershot SD300. No more then four megapixels, and max ISO of 400.

But I still manage, by using a tripod, low ISO, and long exposure time I manage to get at least half decent photos out of the camera.

How are these shots? (It's 9 oclock, theres only so much I can take pictures of)
Any tips for improvement?

Quality-wise, you did pretty well, esp for your camera.

With regards to megapixels, it's a measurement of resolution, not image quality. It just means how many pixels there actually are in a camera. Higher MP=/= higher quality.

And with regards to the shortcomings of your camera, you actually did everything right. Everything you mentioned is what I would have done myself to overcome your camera's lacking. And truthfully, your shot comes out great and much better than many pictures I've seen throughout OCN even with better cameras.

Canon's are nice cameras, so you're at least working with a quality product. I always find new things to do with my G10. With that said, and I don't know if it's frowned upon in the forums in regards to cameras but...Canons are notorious for being modified by flashing it's firmware to unlock features that their big brothers have since many use the same processors (and the features are just locked out). Just a thought, I've never done it but know of it.
