This stunning photography book was shot with Sony compact cameras!

Hong Kong by Mikko Takkunen, pictured with a Sony RX100 compact camera

Mikko Takkunen teaches us that small equipment doesn't mean small output, as his new photography book Hong Kong was shot entirely on digital compact cameras

I recently sat down with Mikko to discuss the book, and after providing some fascinating insights into his process and approach we got on to the topic of gear. Having seen firsthand the stunning images in Hong Kong, when I asked which equipment he used I was expecting him to mention one of the best mirrorless or even a medium-format camera. To my surprise, it was quite the opposite.
