My first camera was a Canon FTb because my father used one. I then progressed through a Canon AE-1 (a legend) to a “pro” Canon-the New F1. But it was a heavy sucker! I have never used Nikon gear, and really don’t care for the “which is better” debate. I’ve seen too many wonderful photographs made using equipment – including cell phones – easily classed as rubbish, or consumer grade, or whatever. I am a gear guy, and love to use my big camera and lenses, but it’s all about the images in the end.
Canon EOS-1D X
Canon XTi (Digital Rebel)
Canon Powershot S100 (my first digital camera)
Canon T90 (my last film camera)
Canon F1N with motordrive
I know I left a few out (I had a Minolta digital camera that I took to Italy around 2005. It was a fine camera.)
