    I was just wondering what camera models you have and use? And maybe a 2-5 sentence review and what you use it on.
    I didn't want to put this in the photo thread cause I'd like to keep that one mostly photos.

    As for me.

    Sony Cybershot 1.2 MP DSC P30
    It's cool for me. I got a 128mb card and a battery. So I take this most places and can take over 700 flicks. Quality is decent. Shutter speed sucks like most digis. Perfect for taking pics just for computer or web use since I optimize them in photoshop anyway. So a 4-5 megapixel would be a waste since I don't plan on printing any of those pics.

    Canon Rebel Ti
    I just got this the other day. So I really haven't used it too much. I got this one so when I want actual prints. Pretty lightweight and small. Seems easy enough to use so far.
  2. Pistol, you got the Canon after all?!!! what lens did you pick finally?

    my list:

    Sony cybershot DSC717 5,0 MegaPixels
    2x 128MB memory sticks
    Best camera i ever used/owned...no need to say more

    Canon eos300(european model for the Rebel)

    This camera is good, light, easy to use and in a price that guarantees that you take the camera with you everywhere, test it...even break it and not die about it.
    I find it hard to use film lately, but theres no reason to carry a digital camera on island hopping...its useless and most likely to get hurt.
    Go canon

    Polaroid SX-70, polaroid i-zone

    The sx-70 is a camera all of you remember, great design, great photographs, the film it used is the most slow to dry film polaroids use so its great for manipulations, image transfers on paper etc ect

    You all know the i-zone...its not even a camera.

    ZEISS superikonta large format
    This camera is old, dope and still shoots like no other.

    woohoo tesseract saved the thread.

    I bought the camera from Cost Co. (warehouse store)
    it came with the body, a canon 35-80 lens. a heavy duty canon bag, and 8 rolls of film for 330.00$ brand new in the box.
    So I couldn't really choose the lens. wide angle and 300 zoom are next.
  5. good deal, mine came with a canon 28-90mm lens, its cool..however its a dark lens...you're gonna have trouble in low light conditions..my suggestion would be a standard 50mm/1.8 lens...you can find one in a good price..about 150$...and although less flashy its more effective...

    ---sony cybershot DSC P71 3.2 MP---
    i like it, works well, i get pissed sometimes at the flash mode where it takes a long time to "reload" but its worked real well, i only have the standard 8 card and a 64, im buying a 128 soon though.


    ---nikon n 65---
    bought this to have a "normal" camera and for some photo courses,ive loved this camera, works well, pretty simple to learn but has nice features, like just cheaping out and having the otpion to shoot auto mode (handy for learning). but in manual its sweet, plus its pretty light and not a pain to carry around.

    canon rebel 2000 - takes good pictures but isn't rugged enough

    nikon n65 - real nice, but the latch on the door broke and i cant find a replacement so far that isn't as much as a new camera

    sony digital mavica - hate the resolution, the only cool thing is that it put the files right on a floppy.

    Canon T-90 - possibly the best Canon 35 slr body ever made.

    Canon T-70 - the little brother to the above.

    Minolta D-ImageV - possibly the worst digicam ever! Expect a full 20 minutes of battery life!

    Olympus Point on shoot - solid, easy, standard.

    Minox 35 GT - very small, like a 20 pack of smokes- spy styles !

    I used to be all about kodak film.
    I suppose it's from the motion picture film background.
    But then when I started bulk loading b&w film, Ilford became my new standard.
