    Interesting! Here's a few pro tips from me...
    1) NEVER EVER buy more gear than you can justify
    2) Coolpix 5000-8800 in the hands of a pro will run circles around any amatuer with pro gear
    3) It's all in the vision
    4)... and the knowledge of light.
    Project is going very well. I never thought upgrading from my Coolpix 5000 would make much difference but it has. But the SUI and focusing really suck! I spent all day in bed today recovering from the clumsy focus system that's a chicken dance from hell!
    Don't ask for a sneak peak cause I can't show anything yet. Or maybe I can sneak some set shots in...

    I take it that's the 'gear doesn't matter' approach, right?

    This is totally contrary to my experience working as a freelance photog for the metro newspaper back in the early 90's. All the pros had the best glass and best SLRs - period. They'd refuse an assignment if their camera was in the shop, or all the 300mm 2.8's were signed out before using their 180mm or 200mm 2.8 back-up. For studio or stills they'd pull out MF or 4x5 even if resolution in paper DPI was a complete over-kill.

    I'm more comfortable with the philosophy that a lot of high-end or Pro gear is wasted on amatuers, such as Canon 1D and Nikon D3 owners asking for what JPEG mode works best for instance. They are better off using the Coolpix because they camera doesn't have a higher I.Q. than they do. However, most legitimate Pros I've worked with will scream, bitch and make life miserable for everybody if they have to use amatuer gear for an hour.

    Pro gear certainly makes it easier to get good pics but some P&S cameras are capable of making good photos if used the right way.

    Your response is intuitive but as a (supposedly) retired pro I can tell you there are some huge myths out there. The biggest is that you can't get the results required by the project unless you have the latest greatest (thus most expensive) gear. check out my dormant project... gearninja.com.
    http://gearninja.com/ADS/TheShtr.html
    OK the 5MP cp5k tops out at 8X10 at 300DPI and suffers from some chromatic abberation and very slight softness at the edges, but this stupid little camera absolutely crushes all but my killer 4X5 macro set up which was weird as it used a 35mm back and enlarger lenses. For average to infinity work, the coolpix's suck, but I Shoot 100% studio these days, where my latest CP8800 beats out even the CP5K (due to 8MP).
    You guys are probably shaking your heads but you'd be shocked if I showed you my latest work . It's confidential till it goes to print in 2011.
    Again, this is all STUDIO work, where the little lenses have too much DOF and thus, yeild killer sharpness at Macro.
    For mid-range, destination, architecture etc. A much better Digicam is in order. But I don't shoot for money any more, just for myself and no longer own 4X5 or 8X10 Sinar, Hassy or 35mm film.
    If I need pro gear for a gig. I rent or borrow from my full-time shooter friends

    I don't claim to be a good photographer. In fact, I have much to learn. My current stable of gear mostly revolves around SLR bodies gifted to me by my grandfather. I still play with my Nimslo 3D. I use my Canon Canonet QL17 a couple times a year, but my favorite camera to use is my Minolta SRT 101. You could probably find the SRT 101 and several lenses for < $50 I don't doubt. I use an MC Rokkor 50mm 1.7, a 58mm 85-205 3.8 and a 28mm 3.5. I know not the fastest, but all fun. I actually use them much more than my Nikon D5000. Don't mind the iPhone pic under gastly lighting conditions.



    For the D5000, I just have the 18-55mm 3.5 AF-S VR that came with the body, and a 55-200 VR AF-S.

    I'm pretty new to photography, just getting started:

    Nikon D3000
    18-55 mm 3.5-5.6 Nikkor VR lens
    55-200 mm 4-5.6 Nikkor VR lense
    Home-made light ring
    Some external flash
    A whole mess of filters
    A generic monopod/tripod

    I've got a ton of analog stuff too, but no use going through all that as I never use it.

    Hey all,

    Currently using:

    Nikon D90 w/ battery grip (I found the D90 body just slightly too small and my pinking was left wandering)
    Nikon 18-105mm kit lens.
    Nikon 35mm 1.8
    Nikon 70-300mm VR (Great lens)
    SB-400 travel flash much better than the built in piece of ****.

    Also use a "smaller" digital camera

    Canon G9
    Speedlite Ex270
    I recently bought the canon underwater housing DCC-21 (I think)for a trip to Fiji and It was amazing.

    Film I use an:

    Olympus OM10 with 50mm prime 1.8.
    Current film choices are Ilford XP2 b&w or a Velvia 200 colour.

    I still love my little Olympus Mju 2 compact as well.

    A few others but this is what I use most.

    Still a newbie amateur learning how to use it all.

    I used to have the Canon 30D with 580 EX II and 17-40 F4L and 70-200 F4L.

    Both systems are nice. I just like the control layout and feel of the Nikon as of late.
    TWO is ONE and ONE is NONE, but THREE is more FUN.
