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!

Kodak Z650
UV polariser
60" tripod (home-made - free)
mini tripod (also free - good for low shots)

you may want to be more specific as what set-up you need as mine cost a scratch under 600AU and suits me perfectly

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.

Yummy!!!!!!!! this sounds like my kinda gear xx:hail:

But for now, im happy with my Canon 350D:lol:
18 - 55mm kit lens
75 - 300mm kit lens
hood to help with glare outside
uv filter to protect lenses ( considerably cheaper to replace!)

Im in seventh heaven with my 'relatively new' camera. It takes beautiful pics and i think was really reasonably priced ( $1420aus. for twin lens/camera kit.)
Hoping to buy the much raved about 50mm f1.8, 50mm f1.4 or the 85mm f ?........... as soon as i've saved enough xx:mrgreen:

happy shopping! xxx
