I’m the proud owner of a somewhat dated Digital SLR Camera. It’s one of many Gadgets that I possess.
Sadly I don’t get out and use it half as much as I’d like, and it’s something that I am continually telling everyone I must make an effort to do more of. Being able to use it to it’s full abilities would be nice too!
The Camera is a Canon EOS 400D Digital SLR Camera
With the Stock EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens. Of course you can’t get the 400D any longer, the nearest current equivalent would be the Canon EOS 1000D
I also have a number of additional lenses, including:
The Canon EF 90-300mm f/4.0-5.6 USM Zoom Lens as a half decent Telephoto Lens.
A Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens for very close shots.
A Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM “Fisheye” Lens for Panoramic & Wide Angle scenes.
And lastly my all-purpose day-to-day lens, the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lenswhich gives me slightly more range than the stock 18-55mm without being too large, and of course has the benefits of Image Stabilisation too.
The others provide me with a half decent telephoto lens, a Macro Lens for closeups, and a “Fisheye” for Panoramic or Wide Angle shots.
All of which means I have a fairly heavy Camera Bag to carry around! And that’s before I include the Tripod and Monopod, Spare Batteries, Memory Cards, etc.
Because of the weight of the DSLR I also have a pocket sized Canon Ixus 190 which is a neat little 20 Megapixel camera with a 10x Optical and 20x Digital zoom. As intended this is ideal for just shoving in a pocket on a day out somewhere without having to lug the big camera around with me.
To add to the “family” of Cameras is a handy little Kodak Easyshare Sport C123 which was purchased with one purpose in mind! Underwater photography while I was on holiday in Egypt, and it did the job admirably.
