My Cameras!

Hi all, today I will show you guys what I use to take my photos. I don't have the best equipment out there but I'm happy with what I have (and how much I paid ;D ). For those of you who have no idea how they got here, I am a Canon fan. I think Nikon is just as good but I prefer the controls and ergonomics of Canon.

I will start with my Canon S95. This is probably the "highest end" piece of equipment I own, because it is widely accepted as the best point-and-shoot camera currently on the market. I just got this a few days ago and I love it :) I bought it because I couldn't carry my DSLR around with me all the time, which was a problem for my Project 365. It is 10.0 Megapixels and I paid $330 for it on craigslist.

Next up is my Canon 30D DSLR. It is my first camera and I love it! Although this camera came out in 2006, it is a semi-pro DSLR so it has a top LCD, magnesium alloy body, and many controls over any Canon Rebel DSLR. Unfortunately there is no live view so some shots (camera close to floor) are a pain to take :( It is 8.0 Megapixels and I bought it for $380~ on craigslist over a year ago, but you can buy one now easily for $300.

As you can see, there is no comparison for the background blur, or bokeh, as the DSLR has a much larger sensor. 

Here is a group shot of my lenses and cameras. I have other odds and ends like trigger cables, tripods, flash equipment that I left out.

Enough blabbing about my stuff, thanks for reading! If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below :)


  1. Thanks for sharing. I've always wanted to invest in a nice one. Pretty expensive though.

  2. For a complete amateur like myself what camera would you recommend?

    It really depends how much you want to spend, if you have $350 or so, the Canon S95 is an excellent choice. With that in mind, you can buy a very nice Panasonic Lumix Point and shoot camera for about $130 on sale. A friend of mine picked one up and it takes really nice photos, has a nice large LCD, and even does 720P video. Personally I would look at Sony and Panasonic for cameras under $200.

  4. Nice setup you got there bro. I got a Canon 40D myself and love it :) check out my pics if you got the time!

  5. I've always been a fan of having as many devices as i can. And readin this post makes me wana buy a new camera!

  6. Photography is something I always wanted to get into and now after reading this I feel that I will!

  7. They look really nice and expensive. would love to see pictures taken by them

  8. Man I wish I had your gear. So jelly...

  9. they look epic. cant wait to see more of your work

  10. Nice, i got a pentaz lol, dont reallym know the difference

  11. Nice cameras. I myself am running around with some Kodak I picked up a few years ago. not the greatest, but it does its job well

  12. Most people want a digital camera and this means there is a lot of competition which means lots of choice. Choice is good but when the market place becomes really crowded, it can be difficult to know what to buy. On top of this the camera models are constantly updated by manufacturers meaning new and improved models every 6 months. Many of the features that are marketed by sellers are not that important and those that are important, you probably won't find on the box and many sellers may not be able to tell you about these because they are taught to market specifications such as megapixels and the like.
