    Default What camera do you have?

    What camera do you use? I have:

    An old canon 35mm bought ages ago when I needed a camera quick.
    A canon ixus 7.5 - so I could take quick shots without using my SLR
    A Nikon compact - so I didn't have to worry about losing my ixus if Im likely to be drunk or camping etc.
    And a canon SLR AE-1 - love it but gears have broken...

    Looking into a new digital SLR either canon 50d, 5d mkII or nikon d300. Current thoughts are, 50d is great for action sports, 5d is better for wider and studio work but pricey. Not sure about the nikon, but the compact I have is pretty good, so I'm considering.

    Include what you use it for. Lately just use my compacts for walkabouts. Looking forward to a new SLR.

    Include some shots if you can. I can't load anything up as I also need a new computer. Yes it all broke at once bizzarely, along with my backed up harddrive. Nay mind will have new toys in a couple of months.

    Yep. I use a 500d now.. was previously on the 300d. Canon SLR's are good, I find.

    here's the most recent shot I think I uploaded to Flickr with it.

    Good work. Excellant framing and positioning, leads the eye nicely.

    hot.
    i love the look of larger format cameras with finer grain. all that visual information packed into a photograph. i don't have the patience for it, which is maybe why i appreciate it so much.

    Just sold my Nikon D90, picked up one of these (Polaroid Land model 150) for 7$ at Goodwill, finding film has been difficult but not impossible thanks to Ebay.

    Whoops.

    no point of buying 50d imo, its basicly the same as 40d, but costs more. if you want a good action camera, buy used 1d mkII or mkIII(if you got budget of 5d mkII), theyr way better for portraits and studio work too than some 1.5 or 1.6 crop camera, not to mention the af and fps thats superior to toy cameras like 50d if you shoot action. If you want full frame buy used 5d or if you got more money then 5d mkII or nikon d700.

    I got 1d mkIII, eos 300(film) and hasselblad 500c/m

    Casio EX FC100, I like it 'cause it's has HD, shoots up to 1000fps, and it's compact.

    I'll get a DSLR as soon as I can afford one, but I'm happy with this. I'd love to mess with astrophotography and low light shots.

    <--- Was shot with a Canon Powershot SD300. I'm a photography and I make the best out of any equiptment. So...
