    Hi,

    I couldn't find any place where you say what is your equipment, or am I just too tired today and my eye play games with me? If so, then sorry :hail: .

    I know it doesn't matter that much what is your camera, it matters what you have in your head, even having not high-tech camera one can take brilliant photos.

    But still I am curious what you use?

    I start:


    You can say I had no choice with the lack of founds, but I became a fan of old cameras. So I take pics with over 20 years old Zenit TTL, quite nice, and usefull in self defence, so called 'Russian Tank' :lol:

    :shock: :?:

    Then stop reading because what is really shocking I have borrowed a camera from my friend which is really old (50 years or smth), polish Start 66. I'm about to clean it and start hunting ;)

    Your turn!
    Piotrek

    My camera.... or better yet... camera(s) You'll notice quite a few people in this forum use a variety of cameras....

    Cameras I use on a frequent basis:

    Pentax ME ( carry with me all the time cuz its small )
    Pentax 645 with 120 back
    Canon 10d
    Canon 1v

    I don't carry all of that stuff at any one time.... just take whatever I feel like using.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Hmm,

    I guess it shows I'm rather an amateur with my 1 camera... I enjoy taking photos, I only wish others enjoyed my photos as much as I do ;)

    Just kidding ;) ...well, at least about enjoying my photos, most of it is rubbish...

    Anyway, my photo-guru, whose name cannot be mentioned ;) , says that the more proffesional one gets the less equipment he carries. And not only because one becomes that good, it's because one becomes that lazy :lol: and still knows he can manage with just what he has...

    Looking forward to hearing from other users about their cameras ;)

    Usayit -thanks for the welcomes :D

    This month the rotation has mostly been between a Canon 20D, a Widelux, and an Ansco Titan (6x6 folder). I've started carrying both the Widelux and the Titan at the same time. Both cameras, a light meter, and film fits into a small, insulated lunch bag. I like combining the square with the long rectangle.

    I have a few...
    1. Canon Rebel 2000 (35mm)
    2. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 (digi)
    3. Canon 1968 TL/QL (35mm)

    As many say, the glass is what really matters for the quality.
    I use a Canon 50mm f/1.4 as my main lens. :)

    Oh, also... I am going to upgrade my Rebel to a Canon EOS 1n soon. :thumbup:

    Well.. I started off 2 years ago with a 1970 Pentax, which was running like a charm, until the shutter started to slow down just a bit, and I entirely forgot to get it fixed until a year later. Then I picked myself up:

    1. Canon Rebel XT (350D)
    2. Using an 20 year old 70-210mm lens (I think)
    3. The kit lens which was an 18-55mm (Like, but I need to get the focusing calibrated again. I do believe it may be a tiny bit off)
    3. Canon 70-300mm IS USM (Works like a charm, my current favourite lens)
    4. Borrowing/thinking of buying a Canon 100mm Macro lens (If that goes through, this should be fun. :D)

    The world of photography is addicting
