I love my DSLR, but I also love my tiny Coolpix. The nice thing about a small camera, aside from the ability to take it anywhere and have it on hand at all times, is that I can get the tough, under-the-subject shots without having to contort myself or draw a crowd by lying on the ground under the subject. I position the camera under the subject, point it up at an angle, and take a whole lot of shots, hoping at least one will turn out well.
