    So, what camera does everyone use?

    I have an Olympus C-200 which has never done me wrong! Takes brilliant pictures. :)

    Nikon CoolPix 775.

    Not much by way of bells and whistles, but it's compact, didn't cost the Earth and takes decent pictures.

    Canon EOS 300D with either my 28-135mm IS lens or 50mm f1.8 prime and 550ex speedlite generally (6MP)

    Cybershot U-20 for random photography (2MP)

    my XDA-II for anything else (0.3MP)

    Canon powershot g3. It's a very very good camera with lots of features. I really do need to get a wideangle lens for it.

    Which he likes to torment me with on a regular basis.....

    Actually, make that all three of them (especially when I have no make-up on, am getting dressed, have messy hair, or when I am generally looking utterly shite).

    Anyway, Nikon coolpix 885 for me.

    I don't take many photos to be honest but it has enough nice features that I can brag about and never use.

    Heh, truth be told she's my ginuea pig for any new kit or 'techniques' (no fnarr fnarr's plz, she's already with bun in oven ;)). She moaned recently that I've got no 'good photos' of her, but I reckon of the hundreds I've taken there must be one where she doesn't look too minging ;)

    I use a Canon Powershot G1, not really happy with it though, don't get me wrong it can take some lovely pictures and has plenty of things to tweak. However, it's a bit of a beast and doesn't really fit in the pocket, wish I'd gone for a smaller one now. The Optio S4 looks like the kinda camera that would suit me better, probably be able to get the funds for it if i sell my powershot at its now hugely depreciated value.

    It can take amazing infrared photos though. The later model G camera's don't.

    I have the Finepix S304 which is what i took the sunset picture in the other thread on but i really dont like it. Poor in low light, not very responsive & no shutter priority. If found myself going back to 35mm at the mo till i can save enough cash for the EOS300D.

    I recently upgraded from a Nikon Coolpix 800 to a Coolpix 5400.

    The CP5400 is a nice camera, 5MP with a good quality lens going from a useful 28mm wideangle to a reasonably useful 116mm full zoom. Low light performance is pretty poor, as with a lot of digital compacts and although it has a 400 ISO setting the noise is too bad to use it really.

    Most of these pictures were taken with it. (still hosted by BW there, must find an alternative home).

    I am hopeful that 2004 will see me get a digital SLR, most likely a Nikon as I already have lenses to fit. A second hand D100 probably or maybe one of the forthcoming D70's that Nikon are bringing out to compete with the Canon 300D.

    i mentioned the s45 because i've used one, a friend got one around the same time i picked up my P9 and he definatly made a better decision than me :)

    I've got a Canon Powershot S45 which is bloody fantastic! I'll mostly be using it tonight to take a picture of my desk for The Actual Desk Thread. It'll scare the life out of those untidy b'stards! ;-)
