Stanley takes some pictures with a Canon G12

Stan has learned how to use a camera and to shout out cheese as he presses the shutter.  ©Timothy Jones http://www.jonesmrjones.co.uk/ https://www.facebook.com/jonesmrjones.co.uk

He has a few of my old crappy point and shoot film cameras in his toy box to play with, but today I gave him my Canon G12. To be honest it's a pile of shit and it doesn't get used at all. It was probably a tip top camera back in the day but by today's standards it's not the best. 

He wandered round the house and garden snapping away saying 'cheese' at everything. He even managed to switch the settings to 'sepia' at one point. I'm guessing he was feeling a bit pretentious and wanted to change the style of his shots. He looks through the viewfinder as well rather than use the LCD screen on the back.

After he had finished and started to press all the buttons to see what they did I whacked the memory card in the MacBook and had a look at the pics. He did pretty well! 

What do you think? Is he any good? Is the dude a phot in the making or should he hang the camera up now and get back to watching Paw Patrol and colouring in?

As he walked around, I grabbed a few on my iPhone as well.  

EDIT for the FAQ: The grass is fake it's a brand called Tiger Turf. The dining room table was from Habitat. (2509016)

Wonderful! I gave my Canon & 300 mm zoom lens to my 3-year-old grandson & he actually got a good pic of a jet way up in the sky! Great perspective from the little peeps! Awesome!

Apart from the sepia picture of his shoes (which reminds me of the film childs play) they’re all awesome pictures, and if I wasn’t scared of chucky still I’d like them all.

Would like to see what Stan is taking pictures of now.
