Serious Compacts are a small group of cameras that share the following qualities:
- Pocketable size,
- High quality fixed zoom lens with a range between wide angle to portrait length,
- Easily accessible manual controls,
- Raw recording capability.
These cameras include the Canon G12, Nikon P7100, Panasonic LX-5/Leica D-Lux 5, Olympus XZ-1 and the Samsung TL500 (EX-1).
These cameras are capable of extremely good photos, and can be ideally used on a walking stick/monopod. To this end, we have developed a compact, modular, L-bracket for use with the Serious Compacts. It is light and compact enough to be just left on the camera as they add little bulk or weight and do not interfere with camera operation.
