    Wide Angle Lens (10mm is the example given)

    Shallow depth of field - i.e. large aperture like f/2.8 (or f/4 - f/5.6 is the example given)

    saturation, vibrancy, and contrast increased in photoshop/or any photo editing application.

    Some vignette added on some of the photos.

    doesn't look like there's any flash used due to the high ISO in the data below the photos.

    a lot of them have shallow depth of field because the subject is focused close.

    What everyone else said.

    wide, wide lens, big aperture...
    And I think some holga-type PP- adding contrast, saturation, little vignette...

    You can simply use a regular camera and get all those effect in post production.

    Not exactly. While you may be able to get some of the effects, using an SLR (with the proper lens) is what will give you the wide angle.

    Good point! Also the depth of field will be much deeper with a compact. The sensor size affects the depth of field greatly too (i.e the larger the sensor, the shallower the depth of field). DSLRs have larger sensors.

    or; a lot of cameras will give that kind of color just by selecting a setting on their set-up menus

    yes i suppose but I would rather my mac did it than the tiny little processor in the camera. Plus I don't think the in-camera settings will apply that much saturation as seen in the examples.

    it looks like 10mm on a 1.6 cropped sensor. my full frame at 16mm gets a similar field of view.

    If you want super wide you can always go for the 8mm that I think sigma makes.
