Ok, is there anyone here who does NOT use a Canon or Nikon camera??

Please tell me that I'm not the only one that falls into this category....

Just interesting in what OTHER brands people are using.

Cheers,
Martin

(no offense to Canon/Nikon users. Just want us "others" to have a go!)

Are you surprised? Probably 90% of the pictures on this site are taken with a (D)SLR of which Canon and Nikon have 90% market share. On top of that only a small group of the thousands of photographers visit the forum... You do the math...

Hi all

Funny story..........I actually had a dream last night that I was trying out a new camera.

It was the Sigma.

I remember taking photographs at my local and tried to figure out a way to reset the images taken counter to zero before returning it to the shop for refund  Smile

Any big users of the Sigma here?

Regards

Gary

I used to use a Kodak DC 240 (2.1 MP) and have 4 pics in the database to show for my efforts.

Then I got a Sony W1 (5.1 MP) and got 1 pic accepted using it. I still own and use the Sony for things other than aviation.

I now use a Canon 300D for all of my aviation and have gotten 177 more pics accepted and counting  Smile

There's quite a few of us who use the Olympus C7*** series cameras. Most of my pictures here were taken with a C750. However, I must admit it only occasionally comes of out the bag now, as I've recently gone Canon Smile

Until two months ago I used to take slides with a Minolta Dynax 7xi, but now I've upgraded to a Konica Minolta Dynax 7D DSLR (8 pictures of this in database already).

No matter what camera you use, keep shooting!

Ad!! How do you find that camera, I have still got my film Minolta 500si and was think of getting that one at the time but it wasn't released then so I got my Canon 10D, which I find brilliant. I still have all my Minolta gear. I would be very interested to know how you find this camera. If I remember correctly it has IS built into the body of the camera.

Take care

I currently have 29 pics in the db. 11 of them were made with a Sony DCS-V1 (about 2 years old, 5MP), the rest is made with a Nikon D70.

I still use the Sony from time to time, when I am travelling and I can't lug around the D70. I need to shoot in tiff to get acceptable levels, and it takes quite some work (and many rejections!)...

Hi!
Don't worry Martin, you are not alone!

I am using a Olympus E-300 DSLR with a Zuiko 14-45 f3.5 - 5.6 and a Zuiko 40-150 f3.5 - 5.6 lens.

Purchased it two months ago, and already have 10 pictures in the database.

I'm really loving it  Wink

Best regards,
Fabian/PositiveClimb

Olympus C750UZ..
Since August 2003 I have had over 200 photos accepted.
July of this year it finally died after 23 months of photography.
I guess it can't handle 10,000+ photos/year loads..

A consumer camera I will never touch again.
Now I am hoping to save up for a DSLR by Christmas.

Hey now this is better

I use the Pentax *ist D and now have over 130 shots accepted with it

I mainly wanted to see who of us chose brands other than Canon/Nikon.

Proves that you don't have to go with majority to get pics accepted!!

Thanks all!

I have used a Olympus C700 for my first several hundred photos on here and then moved up to a DSLR. I am now taking most of my photos with a Nikon 7900 that fits in my flight bag fairly well as it is pretty awkward to be holding a DSLR and trying to keep people from killing me at the same time.

A friend of mine uses the Konica Minolta 7D and absolutely loves it. The built-in image stabilization is a nice touch, esp. with the Sigma 50-500mm.

Well, I'm quite happy with my Dynax 7D! The camera grip feels very good and all the buttons, knobs and wheels are ergonomically in exactly the right places. The camera handles in the same way as my old 7xi, it felt very familiar directly from the start. The biggest advantage and main reason for buying the 7D is that I can use my old AF lenses on it. No need to buy new IS glass, since the anti-shake system is built in the camera body. This system works very well and enables you to take pictures with much lower shutter speeds than you're used to. Another positive point is the big screen on the back.
Minusses are that your old flash will not cooperate with the software of the DSLR (it will only give full flashes) and that it has "only" 6.2 megapixels (I expect that in a year or so Konica Minolta will bring out an 8 mp version).

Ad
