You REALLY got into the digital P&S game late--I picked up my nikon coolpix 950 in 2002, and I was behind. What were you using prior to 2006? Film P&S's or SLRs?

I bought my first P/S in 2006 too! But I kept on upgrading at very fast pace:) I am sure I don't need that.

I was using a Rebel 2000 SLR. (It was considered the bomb at the time.) :)

Actually, I looked at digital before 2006, but was not impressed. It wasn't until about '06 that I thought the quality and price was good enough to get my feet wet (on a P&S -- I wasn't ready to give up my film SLR before then.) :)

I didn't take pictures at all before 2006. I used film only after I came to understand exposure etc. a bit while messing with P/S in manual mode! And then I bought 20D, kept it for a few years and then jumped to 5D.

Digital bodies - I started wth a 10D, upgraded to the 20D, replaced this with the 40D when the 20 died for the second time, and have recently upgraded to a 7D.
Lenses I have been upgrading since my first film EOS camera, originally sigma lenses replaced with canon lenses, slowly moving to L series when I can afford them

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I'll upgrade as soon as they bring out the new 1Ds Mark IV. Hopefully in the next year or two?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Took me about 5 years.

Went from a 300D to a 7D. Not sure how many generations that would be.

Next upgrade will be to some version of a 1D likely. No idea when.

It all depends on what the project requires.

Answer: Happy with my gear...

I know there are cameras out there that could do a better job with certain types of shots but although money isn't really a factor I am really happy with the current rig - versatile, simple, good IQ, easy to use (ie. no swapping lenses etc.).

Current rig is 50D + 24-105L along with a UV filter, great polarizing filter (B+W), a 430EXII flash, and a nice tripod (Manfrotto pro tripod) for portraits and whatever else. I also put in an order for a 500D close up lens recently but they are on back order for obvious reasons.

As you can see I am all about the combination of great DSLR images with a minimum of hassle, and if my 105L doesnt have the reach that's fine. Once I get the 500D close up lens I'll have the short end covered I figure. Shaping up pretty good so far I think, for a rank amateur!

I'm not so much a upgrader but a trader. I tend to trade up with each new body. This has worked fairly well for me. Started with the XT, 10~11 months later traded up to the XTi. With the sale of the XT it ended up costing about $200. From the XTi went to the 40D in another 11 months or. I just kept going. It's averaged somewhere around $250~$300 a year with the sale of the older body.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

When something comes along that will benefit my shooting greatly and is affordable to me.

When I'm prevented from doing something I really want to by some technical aspect of my equipment, when a solution exists, and when, all things considered, I can afford it.
