    One of the cameras that I enjoyed the most was the Hasselblad 500C. It took me back to the manual photography basics and WOW the quality of the photos.

    I took it to a camera shop to sell on my behalf when I sold my Canon 10D. It was not in a good condition and they decided to get everything fixed (500C, 80mm & 150mm, prism viewfinder, extension tubes, etc.). It cost them quite a few bucks and they never sold it. It think I should go an collect it. Problem is the money spent to fix it or with and then .

    I'll start out with mine(sorta my parents, too):

    Canon Digital Rebel XTi
    18-55mm stock lens
    Canon 28-80mm Ultrasonic (rescued from a junk pile :O)
    Canon 55-250mm EF-S IS Lens
    Quantaray 70-300mm Lens
    Canon Speedlite 177A (rescued from junk pile :O)
    Velbon CX200 Tripod
    Quantaray QSX 9002D Tripod

    Canon SD1000 point and shoot
    You need a EF 50 f1.8, it far exceeds those consumer zooms in contrast and sharpness and is great for handheld photography in low light and portraits for less than a hundred bucks.

    I just sold an EF 85 f1.8 USM and it was extremly sharp and contrasty and had very good bokeh, but is a bit pricy.

    I am still shooting film with a Canon Elan 7 body and EF 28-105 f3.5-4.5 USM, 100-300 f3.5-4.5 USM and the 50 f1.8 mostly.

    2- Nikon D70's
    2- Nikon D300's
    Few Nikon lenses: 16, 20, 50, 80, 300 mm fixed focal length
    A Subal housing for D70 & D300 (I have back up bodies for these because the housings cost more than the cameras and lenses and become obsolete quickly!!)
    Couple Olympus Stylus rugged and ultimately disposable point and shoots.

    Most important: PhotoShop CS4 !

    I love your underwater photos. I wish I have one, but right now I cannot justify spending so much to get the underwater housing which cost a few times more than the camera itself since I don't scuba dive frequently enough. One of these days I'll retire and live in Hawaii

    Going from film to digital, I switched to a Macro lens to do all the stuff the 50 does + portraits + macro.
    It does all three jobs superbly and at least compared to the L, is small and light.

    Canon EOS 620
    Canon EOS 20D
    Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L
    Canon EF-S 60mm Macro


    I think of the L as my magic lens. Everything it 'sees' turns out simply



    And today's most recent macro shot:

    I have a ridiculous amount photographic equipment that I've acquired through my job, but I've been trying a more minimalistic approach. What I currently use mostly is:

    Canon 50D
    Canon 20D as backup

    BG-E2 grip on each body

    Canon 10-22mm
    Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS
    Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8

    Canon 580EX
    Canon 430EX

    Sigma 28-80mm macro (just for the macro)

    I use a few different cameras/systems depending on what I am wanting to do - Mostly my digital SLR for speed and convenience, but also a digital P&S, and a few older film cameras that get brought out for certain tasks.

    Some of the gear I use regularly:
    Canon 400d with grip
    Canon 10-22mm
    Canon 35mm f2
    Canon 70-210mm f4
    Canon 18-55mm
    Canon 430exII
    Tamron 200-400mm f5.6

    Panasonic FX37

    Nikon FM with 50mm f1.8 (loaded with B&W film)

    Olympus XA2 (film varies, usually either slide for cross processing or redscale)

    Assorted tripods, gorillapods and other bits and pieces

    The 400d is without doubt my main camera, for the speed and convenience of digital versus film, so is where I have the most money invested. The Panasonic I just got recently, intended as a smaller pocket camera for when I am going out and would like some form of camera, but can't be bothered carting the SLR.
    The FM gets the title of my favourite camera though, I love how the aperture ring and shutter speed clicks nicely into place and the focus just glides smoothly around, and enjoy working with the limits of film - sadly film costs and the speed and ease of digital makes for a more practical camera a lot of the time.

    Every now and then, I'll take out my old Rodenstock loupe and look at my landscape slides on a light table. Although inconvenient by today's standards, it's quite simply the purest most awe-inspiring way to experience a photo. The images are just alive and appear almost 3-D. There is a certain zen to inspecting slides through a loupe (I even used to use a Leica stereomicroscope for close detail inspection). And the coolest thing is that that actual piece of slide film was what was in the camera at the moment the picture was captured. Magic!

    I've been sniffing around better glass but I have to see where I'm going with this. I used to be into photography many years ago and I let it go. Now I'm back so we'll see what happens. Believe it or not it was doing the reviews here that got me going again.

    Anybody here a member of the Canon Digital forum (www.photography-on-the.net)?

    Cool Re: Post your camera equipment/setup!

    Bought this little gem, brand new, 32 years ago this week.


    ( heck, most of you youngsters weren't even born yet ! )






    A bit of history on the Rollei 35 -- (from the Web)

    The most exciting project on Heinz Waaske´s drawing board was a miniature 35mm format camera. It was to become a resounding success, but not under the Wirgin name. Heinz Waaske had already tried to persuade his boss to produce this camera, and he had even made a model. But Henry Wirgin did not take the bit in his teeth. Perhaps the fiasco with the Edixa Electronica was too recent in his memory. Leitz in Wetzlar was presented with the idea, but refused politely.

    Heinz Waaske had more luck with Franke & Heidecke in Braunschweig. Rolleiflex sales, which had been outstanding, were by this time on a downward trend and the company apparently lacked a replacement. Henry Waaske´s invention must have seemed like a gift from heaven. Today everyone knows how popular the little Rollei 35 became.
     
    In 1965 Heinz Waaske resigned from Wirgin and moved to Braunschweig. He stayed with Franke & Heidecke till 1978, after which he started up his own design workshop.

    He resolved problems for Minox and others.
    In 1995, the gifted camera-designer died at 71 years of age.

    BTW, my favorite point and shoot is a Nikon, the COOLPIX S10. Its unconventional enough that people bought so few it was discontinued, but it does the most important part of any camera, in a way no other compact does: the lens. Over a third of the body volume and even more of the mass is devoted to glass. And the swivel design means no waiting while the motor drones away to retract it:
