    Question Your camera gear

    It's a question often asked in the photo section, and technology has moved on from a few years ago when it was last asked, so I thought it might be interesting to update things and see exactly what equipment people are using now.

    This is what I currently have.

    Canon 10D+Battery grip

    Tokina 17mm f/3.5 AT-X Pro
    Canon 50mm f1.8
    Canon 28-70mm f2.8L
    Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX Macro
    Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO EX HSM
    Sigma 2x APO EX Tele-Converter

    Canon 550EX Speedlite
    Canon 540EZ Speedlite
    Prolinca 250 studio flash, plus a couple of softboxes

    Slik PRO 700DX tripod
    Manfrotto micro positioning plate
    Kenko Extension tubes
    and a few B+W filters, polariser, 81A and UV.

    My most used lens is probably the macro or the 17mm. The lenses I use the least are the 28-70 and 70-200, which perversely were also the most expensive.

    What camera are you using ?

    Didn't realise Cosina were still around. I used to own a 35mm Cosina CSM1. Great camera that was in the early 80s.

    I've only got a Fuji S602 Zoom with a Fuji adapter ring, a UV filter and a polarizer filter, a hood thingy, an external flash (it's upstairs and don't want to wake the wife to check the make etc lol), a nice tripod and a mini tripod (again upstairs), 1 gig, 128mb and 64mb CF cards.

    I'd love a Canon 350D.
    Saying that, this looks a nice bit of kit.

    How about a positive LSD story? Would you like to see a positive LSD story on the news to hear what's it all about, perhaps? Wouldn't that be interesting just once?

    "Today, a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves... Here's Tom with the weather".
