we have the olympus c-4040 with 2.7x telephoto lense and +1 - +10 closeup lense set.

we used to have a minolta maxim 700 35 mm but we sold it when we got our first digital, an olympus c3030.

The one I use: Olympus 3040Z.
The ones I used to use: A whole bunch of old Canon film stuff, including Canon FTb.

Pack26, I used to love those Olympus 1 and 2n. Pity there are no digital cameras today that would be as intuitive and handy as the old film cameras.

06-15-2004, 01:21

I have a Nikon F5 and a few lenses. I would like to hear anything Todd has to say about his digital SLRs.

What would you like to know Aaron? This is actally what I do for a living. If you're packing an F5 you're not fooling around yourself.

About 2% of my clients these days want film, hense the N90s and F4. No sense putting bucks into film bodies I'm not going to use. I'm a huge fan of the D-100. I can't see, again for me, dropping the coins for the new D2-H. I did get to shoot with a couple of them a few weeks ago but it was on somebody elses bill.

I'd be glad to answer anything I can.

I am mostly into wildlife/nature just as a hobby so far. I have not done much research on the digital SLRs, but the D100 looked good on paper. It felt kind of cheap when I held one; I couldn't put my finger on what the problem was though. Other than that, all I really have to go on is what I hear.
How do the batteries hold up? I have heard they don't instantly turn on like they have a boot sequence or something. I couldn't really be hiking around and see a shot but have to wait for my camera to boot up because it eats batteries if left on. I wouldn't be using much flash, but my lenses are autofocus so I am sure that eats into the power also.
That should be just enough to avoid a total thread hijack.

Nikon D100 and D70. I couldn't give either a higher rec.

T. Harless
06-17-2004, 05:55

The D-100 is a great camera. Battery wise it's way better than any of the D1s. Especially with the vertical grip MB D-100 you have the option of going AA if the Li-ion craps out. Honestly. With the D1s, I wouldn't go shoot anything without 2 spare batteries. I can't tell you when I had the D100 plugged in last.

There is no delay starting up.

It is not built as ruggedly as the D1s. It like as the F-100 is to the F5.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

Godd luck

It's a work in progress, but for what it's worth, I've some photos at ToddHarless.com


06-18-2004, 21:52
Todd, it's very nice. It's a pity, though, that the tiny size of the photographs takes away from the enjoyment.

06-18-2004, 22:52
Looks good Todd. :)

Hi All, I have the Fujifilm Finepix S5000.

06-21-2004, 11:42
Lets see,

Nikon D-1H, D-100, F4s, FM, Busch Pressman 4x5, Mamiya 6x6 TLR,


06-21-2004, 12:23
Nikormat FT3 (recently rebuilt - cost more to rehab the camera than I paid for it in 1978)
Nikon FE

My FE2 was stolen, :( and I sold my F2AS last year - I'll never part with my Nikormat - too much sentimental value - I worked my tail off as a kid so I could buy this camera (while in Jr. High) and a couple of Nikkor lenses. While the Nikormat works perfectly after it was rehabed, I rarly use it, I could care less if I trash my FE, but I want to keep that Nikormat till I die.
(Several collectible 35mm and other cameras of my youth)

Though, I am not shooting much film these days...

So for now I am using an
Olympus 2100 UltraZoom
and an Olympus 270

Wish Oly would come out with a newer version of the UltraZoom with more pixles.

I am waiting till the used market on some decent Fuji or other digitals based Nikon SLR bodies comes down some more before I get another digital camera.

06-21-2004, 13:38
Mamiya RZ67
Mamiya 645 Pro
Canon Elan 7
Canon 10D

06-21-2004, 16:11

Backup systems

Calumet 4x5 w/ 150mm lens

One of these days, I'll have to get a digital camera but I'm an old fart and slow to adopt these new fangled things.

Large assortment of Vivitar, Braun, Metz and Nikon flashes.

Quickset and Slik tripods.

Think I'll start selling off 35mm equipment on eBay later this summer, when I have some time on my hands.

07-04-2004, 20:34
Canon EOS Digital Rebel, here is an example pic. It's not great, but you get the idea. :)


07-05-2004, 12:12
I have a Pentax LX and a Pentax K1000. I absolutely love the LX. I may get flack on this but I think it is possibly the best 35MM camera ever made.

Also have the AF400T Flash Unit, Pentax 50MM 2.0 Lens, Pentax Spot Meter, a fairly nice zoom, a 300 MM fixed f8 and a 28 MM wide angle. And numerous filters and other gadgets that seem to go with all of this.

I'm saving up for a nice digital. I love traditional photography, but frankly digital is the way to go anymore.

07-05-2004, 14:08
I am a Rolleiflex twin lens reflex fan. Other classic cameras that I shoot are Zeiss-Ikon folders, and a Pentax K1000. I must admit that since getting a Sony DSC-S85, my film cameras are not getting much of a workout anymore.

I also think it was one of the best cameras ever made. While Nikon and Canon decided at some point to build Tiger tanks, Pentax built a Ferrari.

The only think I would have changed in the LX was, in my opinion, a little excessive mirror slap for that class of a camera.

07-05-2004, 23:56
Canon A70.. (But I have my sights set on the Digital Rebel)
Canon Elan IIe

Yes.. I like Canon. :)

07-08-2004, 09:07

All I have left over from my long-ago photography days is a Minolta SRT 202. I know that it's not worth much today, but I doubt I will ever part with it.

Now, after many years of taking only snapshots, I have decided to get back into photography. I just recently bought a Nikon D70 and have really had it only a few days. I can hold my own in the area of general photography knowledge, but cripes, this Nikon will take me a year to figure out!

07-10-2004, 15:27
I just recently bought a Nikon D70
I am a Nikon fan, but I tried to save money and bought the Fuji S7000. It is a good camera, but I should have bought the D70.

Send some photo links when you get a chance.

Have fun with the D70! :)

07-12-2004, 17:22

I have a Canon 1D (just a totally unbelievable piece of craftsmanship. It's a joy to use and I use it almost every day. worth every penny)

DIGITAL Point & Shoot
Canon A10 (cost me $100. best hundred dollars I ever spent on photography)
Canon G3 (can't say enough good things about this camera. it goes just about everywhere with me)
Kyocera SL300 (great pocket size fun camera)

Canon ZR50 (nice but I hardly ever use it. if I was to buy one today, I'd get one that writes to DVD's)

You have the MKII or the first 1D? The MK II is an incredible piece!

07-12-2004, 17:50
The first 1D (which I paid full price for when it first came out) but I still like it very much.
MK II is next on the list. :)

07-20-2004, 16:22
I have a D100 supplied from my employer, and a D1 of my own...

D100 is very nice all-round, but AF and motor drive a bit slow...

D1 is my all time favorite; very fast, very nice handling. Great for sports, but eats batteries.

Plus, a FM2 that is gathering dust;... in the old days I carried a pair of mechanical canon F-1's, one with a motor on it. Now my spine is shaped like an "S" !

35mm is FM2n and F100 Nikons

roll Film is 3 Hassy CMs plus a Pentax 67 for Aerials

Digital is only the D70 (same chip as the D100)

When Fugi comes out with the double chip for some more latitude I will get more digital.

Pair of EOS 650's Still working great but about to retire them
Couple of Mamiya RB-67s w/127mm lenses, one 180mm, one 150 soft focus
HP Photosmart 945 5.3MP
Digital Rebel kit (Just got this one!)

Had my own studio business for 10 years after finishing 20 years in the military, shut that down to go to work for the air force as a civilian staff photographer at Goodfellow AFB for the next 13. Was in on the changover from film to all digital and never looked back. I retired from that 4 years ago and am now just getting back into photography.

Bruce Foreman

(Should'a sold the RB's about 10 years ago but hung onto them to photograph couples at military balls until about 5 years ago.)

08-08-2004, 13:20
Canon Rebel 2000 at the moment, although I really want a Digital Rebel. *sigh* So many hobbies, so little money.
