I think they have lost control...
I got a powerful little "enthusiast" camera called the Panasonic DMC-LX7. Can it do what my micro four thirds cameras and my previous APS-C cameras did? I took it around the steel mill where I work and also shot in an old pumphouse on the property that's been abandoned for 50 years. I shot both straight single-shot and some 3 shot brackets that I turned into HDR. This camera did a GREAT job on this material -- and it fits in my pocket! (Tightly, lol)
