    Nikon D7100, mainly for macro with a Tamron 90mm, and twin Nissin 622 flash.

    Canon G12 modded to full spectrum, with external infrared filters.

    Canon G7 - handy pocket camera, goes everywhere with me.

    All 10/10.

    Re: QOTW: Which camera do you use to take photos?

    I do like photography and would love to invest in a good DSLR, however I am not made of money so my gadget budget mostly goes on computers, phones, consoles and TV's etc. So I do just use my Phone which currently is a HTC M9 (thinking of getting the Note 8 when it comes out!)

    I have various 35mm compacts, SLRs and digital cameras gathering dust but the camera I've been using for the past 5 years is my trusty Panasonic Lumix TZ 30. It ticks lots of boxes for me and does the job just fine.

    Oh, how do I rate it? Gawd knows - it's already too much camera for my abilities, but I'll grow into it.

    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    Re: QOTW: Which camera do you use to take photos?

    Asus Memo HD7 rear facing camera.

    use it for the odd thing here and there. most recent 'proper' photo is from 2013. so I'm not much of a photographer.
    low light is terrible/non existent, as are photos under lightbulb lighting.
    everythings blurry mainly because I cant hold it still while pressing the screen.

    it does the job I bought it for though. so fairly happy with it.

    Canon 5d with a couple of lenses covering 16mm to 400mm. Olympus c50 for tucking away and underwater lhotography (in a waterproof housing) GoPro for action/specialised shots and iPhone when I just want to capture a moment and I don't have the others with me.
