Thinking of updating my digital camera very soon. Have to admit i'm a bit of a Canon fan and have sort of decided on a Canon G6.

Just wondered what every one of here uses and their and whats their views on their own cameras.

Sony V1.

Had it for about 9 months now.

Had to replace my forst V1 due to theft, and I replaced it with the same model as I was totally happy with it.

It's a nice little piece of kit (as I'm sure Rob will confirm).

I'm looking to buy a second camera (digi SLR probably) in the next 6 months, when I start taking my photography seriously again.

Fuji Finepix S5500

4 Megapixels. 10x Optical Zoom.

Nice bit of kit. Went to watch some rugby today, got some pretty nice shots with it.

Lens is big though, so it doesn't fit into my pocket easily sad.gif

Dad is pondering buying a Canon EOS 300D, as they have come down in price a lot with the imminent release of the 350D. I think if he does I will be stealing it quite a lot!

Actually the Sony V3 is in my shortlist, though many reviews place the G6 above the V3 for image quality. Regarding SLRs I did try out the Canon EOS 300d though deemed a bit to technical for me unsure.gif and was too bulky.

Fuji Finepix A120.

It takes pictures and has a flash, so I couldn't be happier.

My little trusty camera is a Pentax Optio S - nothing too flashy, 3.2 Megapixels, 3x optical zoom. Does the job for me, took quite a few photos from the balcony at the pack of Manchester Apollo last night and managed to zoom all the way into the Grant Nicholas (of Feeder) so he pretty much filled the camera smile.gif Quite distorted though... Silly digital zoom!

I've had the little dear for a fair while now, will reinvest later in the year.

Fujifilm finepix a607. Not tried it with coasters yet as I got it in December after my old one died after filming on one two many water rides, but it does the job fine for stills of everything else. The film can be a bit pixelated if zoom is used, but it does what I use it for.

Olympus Mj 410
4.1 Megapixel
3x Optical, 10x Seemless Zoom

Great camera but leaves me pining for a manual cam sometimes, perfect pictures but sometimes liable to camera shake.

Sony DSC P-72

Schnow

Courcheval

Both taken with it on 1.2 megapixels, which is all that I need for this laptop, seeing how it can only handle 1400x1050 max! If I was to print them off I would take better piccies but 1.2 is all you need if you're keeping them on your computer.

Ooooh, what do I win?

Anyway, the camera isn't exactly the smallest in the world. But for what I want it for, it's great. This is the reason why I don't wanna get rid of my vintage Jukebox ZEN! It's huge but I never carry it in my pocket, I always have a bag. Plus if I'm ever mugged I can kill them with one blow of it.

Fuji Finepix S5000.

Decent enough camera. Made by a camera company rather than an electronics company so I trust the optics better. When buying it I went for a higher optical zoom figure than more megapixels, figured that would make more of a difference.

I have a 2 year old Premier Digital DC2350(or something) which as far as I can see is a Vivitar one rebranded. 3x Optical Zoom and 2.1MP. The lens cap doesnt hold any more, and it doesnt take movie files, or anything other than a still image.

Thing is, I want to change it and all, but I cant leave this one behind... it tends to take very good pictures, despite its crappy brand.

Here, have a few of my favourites... excuse the branding, I cant really be bothered to change the originals round.

Canon Powershot A40.

Had it for a while now so about due for an upgrade.
Has been a great camera, taken a lot of abuse and survived (a bit like its owner wink.gif )

Same as me! smile.gif

Mine's getting on a bit now but it's an excellent camera and has given me some good photos over the years. Might upgrade to a better + small model later in the year if I can find some money.

I use a Sony V1 - amazing camera, has won numerous awards, and the night time shooting is very good. Even fires a laser pattern at the subject so it can focus in complete darkness.

I dont think they make it anymore, its been replaced by the V3 I think, but i've had several Sony digital cameras and they are brilliant. Their battery life is particularly good compared to other brands of digital camera. I believe they have just produced a 7.2 MP camera, which is about 450-500 at present.
