Windows 7: Any digital camera shooters?

Any digital camera shooters?

I would have said photographers but many get their undies in a knot when someone calls it digital photography and others call it digital fauxtography but I still think it's the eyes behind the camera that makes the image.

After all that, my question is what do you shoot for camera(s) and favorite subjects, thanks............

I'm just an amateur, with an old, low-end point and shoot....Nikon Coolpix L11. Best place for me to shoot, is at the lake my grandmother lives on, an hour north of me in the Adirondack Mountains.

The same scenes can look different within minutes, depending on the weather's effect on lighting. Recently I was out in the boat with my father, and we are pretty sure we saw a bald eagle, carrying its prey, but we couldn't get close enough to it to snap a picture. We followed it around, just idling the boat, but it would fly on to another spot each time we'd start to get close....and when we finally decided to open the throttle to try and get close, the sound of the 351-cu. inch V8 in the boat scared it away, and it turned and flew inland.

Have to try again another day!

If you want a really cool non-biased review site on digital cameras I can highly recommend this comparison site.

I used to work for a photographic company fixing old photos and general photo editing but when we had customers asking us which camera to buy/use we always used to send them here

For the last few years I have used an Olympus Evolt 500 8.0 MP. Take lots of family shots (10 grandkids). I retired four years ago, got a Travel Trailer and done lots of traveling. Upward of 5,000 pics so far. In the past I had (and still have) an older Olympus SLR 35mm film, but this digital is so much better. I can now take lots of extra shots and curl out the bad ones. A lot cheaper then film. A lot easier to share with friends and family.

I do a bit mainly the grandkids or the cats.

I have a Vivitar 6324 and also an Olympus C-1, which is the first digital camera we brought, back when they were just coming out.

It cost us about £300 and is only 1.3 megapixels whereas the Vivitar is smaller and 6.0 megapixels and cost just over £70 a couple of years ago.

Wow, great replies! noobvius, you shoot similar things like I do, I was heavily into shooting raptors when I was at my camp, now that I have been homebound the past 2 years I do birds, insects, frogs and general things around home but if I get feeling better I hope to make it to camp. I shoot 2 Nikon dSLR's a D3 and D3x and my astrophotography camera is an Olympus C5050z that attaches to my Celestron 8SE with GPS interface but again have not had the strength to move it around the past 2 years. Keep the posts coming....
