    The ''gear'' you use?

    Wonder what ''gear'' you all use to shoot those gorgeous pictures..

    My ''gear''...
    Fuji S602Z digital camera 3MP
    Not the best there is but just fine for ''the job''..
    Olympus MU500 digital pocket camera 5MP, I carry arround every day.
    Great for snap shots and very small.
    Nikon F50.
    This one I rarely use, it is not digital but still makes awesome pictures.
    Maybe the time has come to use it again.. B-)
    Kind Regards,
    GJ

    Re: The ''gear'' you use?

    I use 3 different cameras, primarily: Canon 5D, Canon 1Ds, and Canon 1D Mark IIN. The lenses I use the most are Canon 24-70 and 24-105 IS, both L series and Canon 70-300 DO IS. My Canon 70-200 IS L lens gets used less because it's so big and heavy, but I shot a footie match with it the other day along with the 1D Mark IIN with great results. I also use a Canon 50mm f1.4 alot. It's light and I love the "what you see is what you get" results. For watches, I use a Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens, mostly, but I've gotten good results with the 24-70 as well.
    Cheers,
    Bruce

    I use mainly a Canon G5, but I think I will replace it with an Eos model. That Olympus snapshot camera sounds also good. I want a very small, relative cheep, camera that I can take with me when mountain biking. I don't dare to take my G5 with me and I see the most awesome things biking in nature. A few weeks ago I ended up ina herd of deer in the middle of the track. I was with a friend, else it would have been a very unbelievable story.

    Cheers,

    Most of my digital photos are taken with a Nikon Coolpix 5000. Attached are a couple of photos from the small village of Franktown, near Almonte.
    For vacation trips I still prefer film cameras since I like wide angle photography, and a Nikon DSLR crops all my film lenses by a factor of 1.5. I have a Nikon F80 with 24mm, 35-80, 50mm, and 70-300mm in my bag ready to go on my next trip.

    I was very pleased with my Pentax MX5

    I´d like to sell it, or trade with a watch.
    Now I´m using Pentax *ist DS.

    Re: The ''gear'' you use?

    leica minilux (nondigital)
    minolta dimage xt
    sony dsc-P200
    nikon D70
    canon powershot s500
    panasonic F601Z
    Kyocera S5R

    i rarely use the d70 since i do not like to lug big cameras around. i'm in the market for a new compact digital. i prefer something you can put in your pocket and go. i'm interested in the panasonic dmc-lx1 or leica d-lux 2, but waiting for maybe a newer version (albeit these are new versions) that aren't so noisy, but i still may end up buying one and just do post photo editing (which is a pain). but i'm still on the fence.

    Re: The ''gear'' you use?

    I almost bought the Leica or Panasonic you mentioned. They're rated really well, except for the noice above ISO 200. You pretty much have to get a noice reduction plugin to handle it, but I've seen great results posted! The Panasonic is the better deal, I guess. Same camera from what I've read.
    Cheers,

    Started off in digital with a Canon Powershot 300, small and easy to use and takes nice pics, but poor zoom quality.

    Upgraded to a Fuji s4100 with a 10x optical and 3x digital zoom, plus it can have external lenses added to it. Still fairly easy to use, plus it has a lot more features on it.
