Are the results from a point and shoot camera "publication quality"? Sure. SOMA Magazine found the photo at right in one of my New York pages. To capture the strange clear glass doors in front of the bathroom stalls (they turn opaque with electric current), I turned off the flash on the T4 and steadied myself against a wall. I'm pretty sure that I was using Fuji ISO 400 color negative film. Anyway, it turned out to be the photo that SOMA needed for its article.
