    I use Panasonic DMC-FZ40. I use it because it's my first "good" camera and I got it for only 272$. Now I'm using it to learn photography.

    Nikon F100 - What I usually shoot with for weddings and portraits.
    Mamiya 645 AFD - For more formal pictures in wedding and portraits.
    Nikon D700 - For when film either isn't appropriate or not sensitive enough.

    Canon 400D - first camera ever and great starting DSLR!
    Canon 7D - because its miles better than the 400D for action based photography and its performance in general (I still keep and use the 400D!)
    Maybe something else to put in the list soon if things go well

    iPhone 4: small,thin,light,is also a computer, internet browser,photo and video playback system,MP3 player,text messager, telephone, AND has a 5 megapixel, backside-illuminated imaging sensor inside behind a 29mm-equivalent semi-wide angle lens in still mode, with an f/2.8 lens, shutter speeds from 1/15 second to a little over 1/10,000 second, ISO range 80 to 1,000.

    Canon 5D: Full-frame sensor, good image quality, takes Canon and NIkon lenses with adapters (I have 13 Nikon lens adapters to Canon EF mount), good color, easy to work with image files. So-so light metering and exposure control system, kind of a slug in terms of response time, but it's payed for itself.

    Nikon D2x: professional control system, astoundingly good wide-area "focus anywhere" AF system, 4-user-configureable settings banks, extremely long battery life, ultra-quick response in all areas, programmable FUNC button allows one-press and one-click switching of critical functions, shoots both 1.5x FOV and 2.0 FOV with one button-press, fabulous light metering and exposure system.

    Nikon D700: Because I can't afford the D3s
    The best of all things is to learn. Money can be lost or stolen, health or strength may fail, but what you have committed to your mind is yours forever.

    D7000 because i upgraded my old D200, and it was a more sensible idea than the d300s as it has better ISO capabilities, and many other things.

    Nikon D3100. I decided on that over the D7000 based on price and the fact that I would have be able to buy extra lenses sooner with the option of upgrading to the D7000 later and still using the same lenses.

    There's always someone with a longer lens.
