One of the most frequently asked questions readers have about my blog is what kind of a camera do I use. I actually have 3 Nikon DSLR's & 2 Canon point & shoot cameras. And I use them all.
Purchased my third Nikon DSLR on July 23rd 2013. A D3100 body only. Three weeks later I had to purchase a new 18-55mm lens to go with the D3100 because my older 18 to 35 lens did not get along well with the newer D3100. I will use this camera & lens for most of my landscapes now.
My DSLR Nikon D-90 sports a Nikkor 70-300mm 1:4.5-6.6 lens. I use this camera for most of my candid people photos, birds, animals, bugs, & flowers. Before my D3100 this camera was my landscape camera.
My Nikon DSLR D-40 is now a back up camera & can handle any of my 4 Nikkor lenses. I'd sure like to hang a nice Nikkor MACRO lens on this one:))
My Canon Powershot SX210iS is the point & shoot camera I carry in a case on my belt everywhere I go.
My Canon Powershot A730iS point & shoot is the camera that sits close to my recliner for most of those doggy living room photos.
All of my Nikkor lenses are interchangable between the D3100, D-90, & the D-40.
Previous to my Nikon D-3100 & D-90, most of my photos were taken with my old faithful Nikon D-50 from about 2006 to early 2011 whereupon the D-50 suffered a rather gruesome fate when it fell off a table onto a cement porch in southeastern Arizona. The 70-300mm lens on the camera survived the fall but the D-50 did not:((
I also have a Stellarvue 80mm Refractor Nighthawk telescope which I have adapted to fit my Nikons giving me the equivelent of a 700mm lens. Only control I have over this lens is shutter speed. It is also manual focus.
