Just bought a Nikon D5000 that came with a AF-S VR 18-55 Lens

Looking into getting another lens in the next week or so.

I'm still using a D70S as my main camera. I bought a Canon SD 1200IS to bring along to my deployment to Iraq last year. I didn't want to bring a DSLR to a place with crazy sand storms

At the moment, A Nikon D60 that I've been using for years. I'm planning on selling it and getting a D7000 within a couple of weeks :D

I have the 18-55 kit lens, 50mm 1.8, and had a 55-200 VR, but got rid of that as I'm really not into zooms.

My next lens purchase, apart from the 18-105 D7000 kit lens, will be a fisheye.

I still wanna see some lighting setup shots from your model shoots! :)

Next time you do a model-shoot please get some setup shots too! Want to see how you set up the softboxes and dish lights etc. Thanks!

Not really a picture-taking sorta fella, but here's what I have...

Kodak Easyshare DX7630. Usually have it set on the Sport setting so that I get something other than motion blur to show for my efforts. Battery clip broke some time ago, followed shortly by the battery door... oh well, at least the electrical tape holding the door together blends in sorta OK. When nobody looks at it.

First time today I used my camcorder -- DXG (brand) DXG-565V. I like that it's about the same size as the Kodak, but I also like that it's better with video than the Kodak by far ;) Gotta thread up about the file format it uses; that's the only issue I have with it other than the inability for it to use a wall wart >.<

EDIT: almost forgot, I have one of these --> http://www.amazon.com/Philips-P44417S-Keychain-Digital-Camera/dp/B000B8YH3W/ref=pd_sim_sg_1 IIRC it's the Vivitar version, not Philips like the one in the link... got it for like $11 at a CVS to see how bad it was. I was actually quite impressed as to how shoddy it is -- single AAA battery for power, viewfinder is a pop-up plastic lens, and oh by the way, you will not be buying any media cards for this thing. (Of course what you save in media card costs you make up for in swear words when you find out that its resolution is 1/10 MP!!) About the only other thing to hate is that it cannot operate in "mass storage mode", i.e. you are required to use the provided software and cable to use the camera! Pity it didn't come with a box of Special K...

EDIT2: Neither Philips nor Vivitar, says Digital Concepts on the front. Sorry for the confusion.

Just a note for anyone with that Digital Concepts camera... mine works in Puppy Linux (sorry for you Ubuntu lovers out there, none of my computers are fast enough for you!) using gphoto.

Specific version of Puppy was TurboPup 1.0, based of of Puppy 4.2.0 (one major version behind). I used the package, gphoto2-2.4.2.pet. Used the terminal (a rare need in Puppy ;) ) to enter "gphoto2 --auto-detect" and it spat out information (don't recall exact words, too lazy to boot back into it since I'm running w/o save file on a CD) that indicated a Sakar [somethingorother] model # 11119 camera attached to USB.

gphoto is pretty awesome. Gonna have to find something with a GUI for it tho -- CLI gives me a bellyache. Sorry old timers I was raised on computers that (mostly) require the use of a mouse to operate properly.

Just a Nikon D3000 with the 18-55 lens that came with it. Trying to improve before I spend more money on a better body, lenses, and equipment.

I have to update my equipment.
Nikon D7000
Tamron 18-270 - surprisingly good quality for a $400 do-all lens
Tokina 11-16 2.8 - beautiful wide angle lens
Nikon 35mm 1.8 DX - inexpensive, great quality, all around lens

I still have my D70S with its kit 18-70 lens, but I doubt I'll ever touch it again.
