    Members' Cameras

    Maybe for information purpose the mods will sticky a thread like this so SG'rs who are thinking of buying a cam then they will know who has one to ask for opinions on the camera

    Canon A-20, Had for 1 1/2 years now, So far a great little camera for the money at the time.

    I would recomend this camera for a point and shooter.
    Although it does not come with a rechargable battery it runs on 4 AA's. 4 NiCads and a charger ran me $25 and last for what seems like forever. If your away from your charger and need batteries any convenience store has AA's.

    Sony Mavica CD-250
    I’ve been using this camera now for about a year and a half.

    Pro's--------|
    It’s a great camera for someone to start out with; who has a basic understanding of burning CDs, and wants a large amount of memory on an expendable medium. (Mini CD-R / CD-RW [8cm])

    Durable design, with good strap mount and strong CD drive latch. Tri-Pod mountable. CD-RW media can be formatted multiple times to save CD-R media. LCD has clear band of material above screen, to use sunlight as the backlight, saves battery power.

    Con's--------|
    Although this camera is built well, it still burns to a CD, so this camera is not for the rough photographer, or for where there’s a lot of action... Large vibrations will make the disk burning process skip.

    Data Transfer and image storage speed depends on speed of CD drive, witch is pretty slow if your in a hurry; flash memory is much faster but also costs more for the space, and is not available as a storage media option.

    Sony PC120BT MiniDV camcorder/digital camera



    PROS: Very convenient to have camcorder/camera all-in-one. Takes quality photos with 1.5MP and nice lens. Very compact and light.

    CONS: Not many user settings for the digital camera. Very slow taking photos (like many digital cameras).

    Armed with the Worry-Free features that have characterized all Sony camcorders, the DCR-PC120BT doesn't just give you the power to capture exceptional video; it gives you the freedom to share treasured memories without even using a PC connection.  How?

Upload images and MPEG movies to a photo album, send text e-mail messages with MPEGs or digital photos attached directly to your friends. Or simply browse the web in the DCR- PC120BT LCD.

    I've got a Canon 10D and Dakota pretty mentioned all the specs but I will go through my lens's......


    Canon 28-135 IS 3.5-5.6

    Fabulous lens in my opinion, its no canon L series but I like it. Its my everyday walk-around lens, because of its sheer ability to adapt, from semi-wide to decent zoom. 5.6 at the telephoto end can be a little troublesome but the IS (image stabization) makes up for it, and I have even been able to hand hold some decent 1/8 sec shots. I'd rate is 8/10


    Canon 50 1.8

    For $150 canadian, all I can say is WOW! super sharp, rivals some L serises lens easily! 1.8 is super fast, and is a great asset in lower light situations where a flash cannot be used. This lens is a must have in any ones camera bag! I'd buy two if I needed em :-) 8.5/10

    YiKeS

    p.s. I can link some of my pictures if anyone is interested in some examples or tests.

    I have had my Canon G1 for nearly 3 years now. It has done well for me.
    I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.
