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.
