I would like to welcome everyone to the forums, and just to get the ball rolling, - two simple questions:
1. What camera do you currently have, and why did you choose to purchase it?
2. What camera would you like to have, and why?
Feel free to elaborate!
I guess I'll go first.
I've got a Fujifilm S5000, and I chose to purchase it because (1) it offered the creative features (10x zoom, aperture priority, shutter priority) (2) it was within my budget, (3) I liked the SLR-like form factor, and (4) because it looked and felt so good!
What I would like to have in my kit though, is the Nikon D70 because I miss my film SLR and would love to have the flexibility, quality and convenience of digital.
Hey ST, how's the review coming along?
I have a sony DSP-P8
Purchased it cause it had good features for price. Also it allowed for motion capture with sound for as long as the memory stick could hold, unlike some cameras which limit you to like 30sec motion capture. Also has 3x optical zoom.
As for which camera i wished i have i don't know!!! not really a camera buff so not sure what is around. But probably a digital SLR camera for quality i suppose.

I own a Canon 10D, and my wife, (who isnt a member here, and dislikes forums), has a Pentax *ISTD.
Why the Canon?
Well, plenty lenses and accessories, good build, feel, and image quality.
I own no "L" class, white, posing lenses, as;
a/ They are too expensive
b/ I dont like to be conspicuous.
Can I be a moderator please?
I have a Canon Powershot S30 which I bought nearly 2 years ago. I did some research on dpreview.com and it seemed like a good buy.
I'm no keen photographer but I'm quite happy with how the pictures turn out and just the general usability of the camera. If I have any gripes about it, it would be that the battery life seems very short lived, and the relatively long time it takes for it to power up.
But I'm totally happy with the image quality for a 3 megapixel cam!
I owe a Minolta Dimage Z1 and I am extremely happy with it. I have had it for about 4 months now and love using it.
I bought it because I wanted a 10x zoom and when I looked at what was available I was very impressed with its features. The menu is written in English so you can find what you want without having to remember what the icons stand for. Also when I saw the look of it I just had to have it.
I don't know what other camera I would have as I am very happy with the Dimage Z1.
By the way this is a great site.
