Since the interest in camera brands and models is so great, I would expect many of you to be able to tell me what equipment I used to take this snapshot of my Venus flytrap. Please note the nasty compression artifacts and color fringing typical of consumer grade point&shoot cameras.

Those are cool plants.
I actually have a video of it. I touched the trigger hairs with a toothpick and the plant clamped down. Maybe I'll upload it.

No EXIF data? Those blinds are actually an interesting optical illusion... or they are at least messing with my head if I stare at them. Does the plant like McNuggets?

I started stripping the EXIF data from all images a couple years ago when people kept asking the one question I didn't care to hear. My flytrap has never caught a bug. \:\(

Looks like GIMP or Irfanview instead of Photoshop. The camera is more difficult. Is it one of these?

It's square, you must be using a Hasselblad! or maybe a Zenit? Ricoh R8?
Uh, I often crop.

I always use Photoshop. I haven't touched Gimp in a couple years. The image was saved "for Web" (which strips EXIF data), which results in compression suitable for Web use.

Given adequate functionality, there is no correlation between the tool and the result. What hammer do you use for pounding a nail into a wall? What's the point in asking what equipment was used? You are looking at tiny 96 dpi images!
