Want to see what kind of cameras people use and why.
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.
canon 5d mk ii because i wanted a full frame dslr to shoot landscapes.
canon g10 because i wanted a powerful p&s with raw capabilities for those times when i don't want to carry the 5d mk ii.
Nikon D7000 because its mad sexy.
Nikon FM because I <3 Full Manual Photography
Nikon FG-20 because I <3 Full Manual Photography with a light meter (;
550D because I wanted a DSLR and I was ineligible to sell my left kidney.
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.
Because I got a real good deal on it.
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
Leica M9. Because it's small, light and easy to hide.
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 D700 cause it makes me look like a pro
Canon IS1400 because sometimes I feel lazy.
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.
Digital excluding film and collectables I assume... stuff we still use..
Leica M8 and M9 - Just because
Panasonic LX3 - Just because
Panasonic TZ5 - Just because
Panasonic G1 - Just because
Olympus E-PL1 - Just because
Pentax K10D - Just because
On occasion I do miss my Canon stuff.... 1d markII because of its AF and metering.
Nikon D3 - I have 3 of them. Professional grade full frame, 300,000 actuations shutter life, built-in vertical grip and controls.
Nikon D300 - I have 2 of them (one is for sale here on TPF). The D300 has a crop sensor, but the layout of all the external controls and buttons is essentially the same as the D3, so switching between them is eazy-peezy.
Kodak C813 - a christmas present a few years ago,
Wow. Why do you need so many cameras?
D80 back up for times the D7000 is in for warranty
Jiffy-Kodak 620 (which I use)
Minox tiny 35mm camera , was a gift but i've put a roll or two through it.
if you have to ask ..... you probably wouldn't understand
