I've been taking photographs for 30 years (since I was a kid). I've gone from the Diana Camera (remember those??) to Kodak Instamatics to a film SLR with many lenses to a point and shoot (when I couldn't be bothered to carry those lenses) and then, finally, to digital.
My first digital camera was a Canon Powershot S100. The Digital Elph was the perfect camera for somebody who didn't want to be a pack mule. At 2 megapixels, the camera produced some nice photographs. The internal flash left something to be desired. It had the luminosity of a candle. From the Elph, I went to the Canon G5. The 5 megapixel camera is wonderful. It has the ability to be on automatic but also has the versatility of being able to switch to manual settings. The flash was a big improvement over the S100 and I was also able to put an external flash onto it to boost the output. A little bulkier than the S100, it was still easy to carry...just needed a slightly larger camera bag. And now, I've come full circle. I've become a pack mule again. I've got a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a 17-40 mm Canon lens (L series) and a 75-300 mm lens for those longer (I can't or won't get too close) shots.
Please enjoy my Photo Gallery. I'll be adding to it on a regular basis.
