The following images were photographed with an old (3 year old) Nikon Coolpix Camera.  It is possible for quality images to come out of a point and shoot camera.  After all, for this application (Landscapes and Wildlife) it is not always necessary to use your D-SLR.

If you have more examples you would like to share or get advice about, please share a link or comments you would like.
