On my last trip to Birmingham, the train got me to the station with plenty of time to spare before I had to be at my meeting, so I wandered around and took some pictures with my Canon Z135 compact. It’s not the smallest compact I own, but it’s proven that it can produce reliable point-and-shoot results and the images are plenty sharp, although with perhaps a bit of softness right at the edges.
The cathedral (St. Philips) was open, so I popped inside to see if there were some photos to be had and I made the three you can see below. While the cathedral interior wasn’t too dark, the Z135 doesn’t have a particularly fast lens – f/3.5 at its widest – so I was pleased I was still able to make these three pictures handheld with no noticeable signs of camera shake.
