*This is NOT a showing off exercise... rather it is to see what people shoot with, why and what they would like to experiment with next*

As some of you might had guessed, I'm primarily a Canon digital shooter (EOS 20D with too much cheap glass). I also shoot in film on my older Canon EOS300... but more recently, I'm shooting on a Holga (a cheap plastic medium format camera)

With the EOS's, I get the flexibility I want with a big system like that... but with the holga, I get the unpredictability that's removed from most modern cameras today. Plus it makes me think more when taking a pic...

Next steps: probably another canon, but I might get a medium format Bronica next... just for the fun of shooting an image.

So what about you?

(Edited for a silly mistake and spelling)

I still work in black and white film (with the classic 12 minutes develop, water stop, 4 minutes fix, 20 minute wash and pray), then spending the next week or so getting the print right (I did this during my photography classes last year - we did film, digital, and then whatever we wanted)

Admittedly, there is still nothing than the satisifcation of processing a film yourself... and realising that the negatives are good, and not fogged, damaged and haven't curled up too much

the specifics of what people are using here are interesting to me.

I use a mamiya twin Lens reflex (medium format)
love it - have been slowly piecing together a Hasselblad over the years also.
nikon f & nikon n90 - mostly a 28mm lens lately
4X5 pinhole camera (leonardo wide pinhole with a 545 polaroid back)
color slide film= cibachromes
and lots of tri-x - process/print etc. my own b&w

digital : panasonic lumix

Canon 400D, my walk-around zoom is EF-S 17-85mm IS USM.
Also have a EF 100mm f.28 MACRO.

I love my pair of lenses, 17-85 fits most of my everyday use. The MACRO lens is great, real sharp, focusing is a little slow, but hey, what else do you expect from a macro lens? In fact, I rather enjoy manually focusing with my 100mm.

Can't afford an L lense just yet, plus I think I need a flashgun before that, furthermore, I am eyeing up the EF-S 70-300mm DO IS USM.

I have been shooting with a new digital for the last month - Canon Digital Rebel XTi. I still love and use my Canon Elan 7e for film. I really miss the eye-based focus of the 7e on the DR. I wish they'd included it.

So what are you shooting with?

With hopeful anticipation I get a great shot or two..!

Nikon D70 with 18-70mm, 28-300mm
Nikon F75 with 28-100mm (Generally B+W and Transparency)
Canon Powershot A630
Pentax SF7 (not used in years)

I use a d70s with the kitlens 35-70mm and a sigma 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 APo
The sigma does the job but i really long till I can afford buying something with much faster af..
I'm really happy with the kitlens though.
kitlens plus my SB-800 always makes my day when I'm down =)

the mobilecamera or my nikon coolpix3500 sometimes come in handy too..

I recently got a Nikon D80 with an 18-200mm lens, which I use for everything. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a super-wide lens like the 12mm, that or a fisheye. So far, the Nikon's performed well.

I use a Nikon D200 with a Sigma 24-70 f2.8 (not too bad, but not great either) and a Nikkor 50mm f1.8 (which is fantastic, every Nikon users should have one).

I also have a Velbon Sherpa tripod and a kinda DIY studio light.

Also Gaffa Tape. This is one of the most important things you can have for doing still lives.

The classic 50mm lens...

Small light, and works a lot of the time. Also cheap as chips

Almost forgot my old buddy. Minolta SRT-100 with Rokkor 28mm,45mm,50mm,55mm,135mm,200mm lenses. I primarily shoot with my Olympus, but I still love my minolta. For a camera that's as old as me, it still gives great results.

Never underestimate the power of those cameraphones...

Yes the lenses aren't exactly the best optics, and the sensors aren't exactly... well ... brilliant on some models.

But they are excellent "situation" cameras and for places where your regular camera just won't cut it...

Well I have been taking photos for about 5 months now, I have the Canon EOS 400d and twin lens kit, recently bought two news lenses the Sigma 50-500 and Tokina 12-24. Having a blast and certainly see lots of benefits in getting the higher quality lenses. The Canon is versatile but I have seen great shots here with so many camera variations.

Sony Alpha A100 with kit lenses: 75-300/4.5-5.6 (so so), 18-70/3.5-5.6 (not bad), and with Minolta lenses: 50/1.7 (excellent) and 35-80/4-5.6 (not bad). My experience: fixed lenses are better than zooms and if zooms its must have aperure not less than 2.8-3.5.
I also use Minolta 300si (film camera SLR) and Minolta Z1 my first digital.

I use a fuji finepix s6500fd i only bought it a week ago yesterday, its a really good start camera for me and im still learning how to use it. one problem i find though is when i import on my mac, Iphoto resizes all the photo really small which is anoying. also its not english weather tollerent it has a go but some pictures turn out very dull but i guess thats england for yah.

next im not quite saw i like the look of nikon's but im not really sure im going to need to upgrade any time soon. but when i do, its gonna cost me alot most probly.

I've been shooting with a Canon Ixus 55. Until today.
I finally got fed up with compact cameras, and today I purchased a DSLR, the Nikon D80, with an 18-135mm lense. My parents have a 70-300mm lense that I'll probably be knicking once in a while.

I use a $60 4 megapixel camera I got at Wal-Mart.
I put a 2GB SD card in it so I can just keep clicking.
Looks like a lot of you have some serious cameras and I
have seen how good the pictures get. I just don't need all that and I get fairly good pics out of my camera.

I shoot with a bulky Konica Minolta DiMage Z20 (capitalized M in DiMage on purpose). Pretty good, great wide angle lens installed inside, it's just a fixed lens camera. 5.0 megapixels, 8x optical zoom + 4x digital zoom, 36-290mm lens. Kinda hard to work out the focus, but macros usually come out satisfactory. Optional B&W, sepia, and vivid color effects interchangable via a menu.

I want to move ahead to a DSLR soon.

I've got the Sigma 28-105 for my Eos50E and I thought I could use it with my 20D. At first disappointed as AF did not work, however with manual focusing it does the trick and I mustsay focusing is quite easy even for my...eyes

I have three dslr, but my nicest is my Canon 1D Mark III. I also have a 1D Mark IIn and 300D. I shoot a lot of night football so that's why I choose the Mark III. I'd much rather own the 40D. I have quite a few lens and use them all, but my two faves are my Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS & my walk-about lens Canon 24-105 mm EF f/4L IS.

either a disposable film camera or a canon A-95 digital. i recently bought an old Canon A-1 35mm film camera, which is very beutiful, but will only be used when I can afford film processing. Anyone can easily tell from my photos that I can't afford a tripod, and and a long lense is not necessary as most photos are never more than a few feet away around here, so I just wade in and shoot , right up close, then run like buggery.
