    Isn't the 990 an amazing little camera for it's age!
  6. Without scale it would be hard to figure out the actual size of those cars. Course, those could be giant fingers and a normal size car.
  7. Those little cars are amazing. Without the last shot, I would never have thought that they were so tiny.
  8. That scale shot is awesome! Did you paint those yourself?
  9. Amazing photo's Jarrell, especially the one with the fingers in the image.

    Not only are the cars amazing, but the camera. That is impressibe quality and sharpness from a 3.3 meg camera. Must be the photographer. :smile:

    Remember way back when the 990 first came out (to think it was nearly $1000... wow!)? It's still my favorite for shooting small things very easily.
