"The Lightweight Photographer"

The Lightweight Photographer, photo blog about compact cameras and quality.

It makes it sound instead like it's for photographers who are lightweight. I suppose maybe that's the idea but it might make people bypass it thinking it's just for crappy amateurs to post their shitty pictures.

and there was me thinking that it meant the photographer who does not wish to carry around a huge modern SLR type cameras ( these digital ones seem much more bulky than my old FE2) and collection of lenses.

Yes, I think that's what it is.

Indeed, it has long bothered me that for the same format (sensor size), digital cameras are bigger than film cameras. But: sensors are now so good that it hardly matters. The newest Olympus Pen is smaller than almost any 35mm film camera with exchangeable lenses. And though the sensor is smaller, it is much better, I'd hazard that it has at least the quality of medium format film cameras, which are way bulkier, slower, and pricier.
(And the lenses are much smaller too.)
