    Instead of asking what camera set-up I should get, I thought I would see what everyone else had.

    If you could post your camera and any accessories you use, that would be great!

    Film: B&W. 35mm rangefinder cameras, 35mm SLR cameras, twin lens 6x6cm camera. All cameras used in manual mode. Exposure meter. Tripods. Various lenses [fixed and zoom, 24mm to 400mm] and filters [yellow, orange, red, green, polarizing], extension tubes and close-up lenses. Color head enlarger.

    Please note that I have not mentioned brand names. Beyond a certain minimum level of quality there will be little effect on final print impact [Note: impact, not 'quality'!] and choice thus becomes a matter of personal preference.

    I only have film camera's.
    2 manual only. ( with metering )
    2 with aperature priority mode.
    1 auto all kinds of stuff, used manually, but I like the auto focus and Matrix metering.

    50mm primes
    35-135mm zooms
    70-300mm AF
    200 and 300mm fixed

    If I may add, the manual's are not motor driven. The rest have motordrives, so I can complain about how heavy they are at the end of the day. None are newer than 1988.

    I've got a whole cabinet of oldish collectables that see some action and a Canon EOS DLSR/35mm system. I really don't have a "setup".. I just pack whatever suites my purpose or mood. Packing too heavy can really ruin the experience....

    For starters... I'd go with simple...
    * DSLR or Film SLR (your preference) Can't go wrong with either Nikon or Canon... Even the consumer line of cameras are great nowadays
    * Shoulder bag. Lowepro or Tamrac are popular. I like Lowepro
    * Medium Zoom and a fast 50mm prime. Most of your budget is best spent on the glass. Canon's 50mm f1.8 is far south of $100.
    * Lightweight tripod... if you choose to do so.

    My cousin started out with the following a several years ago and it still fits him well today: Canon Elan II, 28-135 IS USM, 50mm f1.8, adorama shoulder bag (he doesn't like to use tripods...).

    If I'm not going on a long hike and feel like shooting B&W negative I tend to pack Pentax 645 w/ 55mm, 75mm, 105mm and Pentax LX w/ 40mm pancake and a medium zoom. I enjoy that "setup" a lot .. sometimes more than my fancy up-to-date Canon digital.
