choice of camera

.

Gordon Lewis wrote a hilarious post about photographers and their cameras, so I brought you the link (above). Check it out.

According to him, I'm cheap. According to me, he's right.

.

The photo above was taken in August by my wife as she watched me sneak up on some house sparrows. If you're curious, here is the shot from where I was stalking.

Gordon says he's not taking any more comments about the post I linked, but he was kind enough to give permission to point others to it. Enjoy.

I'm a Nikon Coolpix person.... but many years ago I used my mother's pre-war Zeiss-Ikon, wonder where it is now.
And thanks for the Birthday wishes, Craver, you are a sweetheart!

I own a Sony, and it's been good to me. I bought it at Target for 65% off the display camera a couple years ago.

My latest is a Fuji, who knows what's next.

Thanks for the link and the chuckles it brought. I don't know what the future might bring, but I still like my Canon.

You have a healthy sense of humor, Chris.

I had considered adding a compact point and shoot Shammy, but when I need one, I just borrow my wife's Fujifilm. There is a clear advantage over always lugging around the big o'l camera bag with lenses and accessories.

Sandman, you're talking about a compact p&s, right? I have looked at the Sony Alpha ads in the photography magazines, and they seem good enough, but I rarely find anyone using them.

Another Fuji! Gaelyn, we have one of those at home.

George, the numbers seem to stack up pretty even between Canon and Nikon, but I know a lot more people who have a Canon. Off hand, Imac is the only one I know who carries Nikons.

I remember the sparrow photo, I thought it was lovely. Real nice photo your wife took of you also. I have a Canon and an Exhilim, but I have recently started taking photos with my new cell phone. Have a great weekend Craver and thanks for the link, I will go check it out now.

Love this photo your wife took! I'm going to check out that article. I'm Canon all the way. :)

Nikon thru and thru me.
And you will change to Nikon too,lol.

Denise, I laughed quietly, when after sneaking around to that side of the pool, Mrs. Craver stepped outside to take a picture of me. I guess I wasn't so stealthy after all.

Not sure why, but I see a lot more Canons than Nikons, EG. I would like to do some side-by-side comparison.

And speaking of Nikons, hello Imac! When I was a teenager, my father bought a Nikon SLR. I used that camera more than he did, and I loved it!
