Sunday Stills ~ your camera(s) and gear

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this weeks challenge "So we have seen the pics, now lets see the camera and gear that gets all those great pics. Bonus points if you have any classic old cameras, add those in for a bit of fun too." I don't own any cool classic cameras, or have much gear, how much fun can it be? I thought about driving into town to take pics of my dear Uncle's cameras. My sister brought them back from Spain after he passed on...but instead, I took pics of my own trio ~ and ended up having fun!

For years (and years) I shot with my Fugi FinePix S7000, it served me well...


Fugi Finepix S7000
























...back in it's day (9 years ago?) it was a great camera. However with digital technology rapidly improving, I reeeally wanted an upgrade. I had the hardest time choosing between the many many ever changing options, and justifying the cost. Knowing that I also needed a pocket camera to take on trail rides, I bought a Canon Powershot SD4000 in the interim. That was an easy, affordable decision. It's a fun little camera (shown in the last picture). 3 months ago, around the time the Canon 60D came out, I thought at last I had found the camera that was right for me. On the day I went to buy it, I ended up passing on the 60D and a telephoto lens, to be able to get a better camera body instead...

....and I have to say, I have no regrets and absolutely LOVE my new Canon 7D!! This pic doesn't do it any justice, but here it is....

....I won't be taking it on any trail rides anytime soon...

I had a blast playing with the reflections!!
The Powershot has face detection, and focused off the viewfinder reflection
from the back of the camera - off the mirror.
This was taken with my 7D, my head is actually above all three cameras.



...that's what my Powershot, and upon occassion old Fugi, are for...mobile fun, with no worries!
