comment What does small depth of field mean?
@Nick - Getting closer but the truth is there is no depth-of-field in an image. Only ONE distance is in focus, everything in front and in back is out of focus but gradually so. How fast you notice things become out of focus depends on the viewing size. That is the depth-of-field.

comment What does small depth of field mean?
@Nick - DOF is a perceptual phenomenon and, as a correlary of points one and two above, has to do with your ability to perceive the difference in focus around the plane of focus. On a smaller photo, your ability to see that difference diminishes. DOF-calculator either let you specify the circle-of-confusion or use an implicit print size, traditionally an 8"x10" print viewed from 12" away by someone with 20/20 vision.

comment Are there any options for a very cheap, small, and reasonably fast camera?
@Xavier - Yes but speed is actually the most expensive feature of digital cameras. A few CMOS sensor compacts have some decent performance but expect $350+... even SLDs are slow. They have DSLR-like quality but lack in speed. Disposable film cameras have near instant shutter-lag. Well, it's only a suggestion, I didn't think it answered your question.

When you say cheap... you really mean it! The only thing that would be fast that I know of at that price is a disposable film camera.

There is also a factor of 8X in speed between the slowest and fastest hummingbirds.

In case it matters, he was using a Nikon ring-flash. I assume flashes can reduce power by emitting less light or emitting it for less long (which is what you want) but I am not sure it is documented with each model.

comment Is the color of the AF assist light important?
Nice question. I would expect these lights to be green since digital cameras are twice as sensitive to green as to other colors. Red and orange are good to reach further though through fog.

comment In what situations should I use which lenses while traveling to Paris?
Not sure what is being asked here. Your lenses do not overlap, so if you can frame it with one, you can't with the other... All that's left is looking at the question about wide-angle lens composition as @mattdm noted.
