I've been into photography from August 2008: relatively speaking, I am an FNG* (just look it up!) I would be interested to know peoples' history of camera models and what they were used for. Here's mine: Nikon D40 - perfect newbie camera with both auto and manual functioning, and in-camera editing. Nikon P100 - megazoom and nothing else to recommend it. Canon PowerShot SX110 IS - decent point and shoot. Canon PowerShot SX30 IS - huge zoom, lots of bells and whistles. Nikon Coolpix S9100 - point and shoot, pocket size, decent zoom. Minolta Dynax 5 - my first 35mm camera, very steep learning curve. Zenit ET - manual 35mm SLR, starting to learning old analogue skills. Casio EX-H15 - although low end by current standards, Casio seemed to produce some decent models at the time. Minolta Dynax 7 - an upgrade on the Dynax 5. Sony A500 - excellent dSLR with advanced features, compatible with Minolta lenses. Canon G9 - advanced compact, small sensor, yet surprising image quality. Fuji HS10 - excellent bridge camera which had a habit of freezing! Leica V-LUX - one of the best bridge cameras, thank God for LeicaSonic! Fuji X-E1 - much heralded compact system camera, used it for a while, but it's not that good once you start putting it through it's paces. Minolta Dynax 9 - incredibly advanced 35mm SLR, a joy to use. Sony A900 - a great dSLR, stunning film-like images. Leica M6 - a classic, end of story. Leica M9 - great model, had to send back as I couldn't get to grips with it! Voigtlander Bessa R2 - aside from build quality (still better than most), just as good as any Leica 35mm RF. Leica M4 - the beginning of my darkroom obsession! Pentax 645n - a great introduction to medium format, still holding its well-deserved value. Hasselblad 500c - another all-time classic, ideal way to learn all the core skills. Nikon F - the original and, some would say, still the best! Over the years, all the cameras have been exchanged, sold used, or put on commission sale at varios dealers. I have learned how to spot a bargain, then sell it for a decent price or do a good trade-in. .....and my current line-up Leica X2 - stunning images, KISS-Keep It Simple Stupid! Leica X-Vario - stunning lens, simple to use (like me!) Nikon F2 - back to using 35mm after a break! For the record, I have certain problems of a psychiatric nature, including obsessive tendencies, as you can see! Thank you and have a nice day!
