Ok, I already got quite a few Cameras
I have started with a
Canon AE 1
I bought that one as a used Camera around 1988.
Lenses: Canon Zoom Lens FD 75-200 mm/ 1:4,5
Canon Zoom Lens FD 35-70 mm /1: 3,5-4,5
Canon Lens FD 28 mm/ 1:2.8
Canon Lens FD 50 mm/ 1:1,4 S.S.C.
Canon Speedlite 155A
Still got that one and still love it very much , as it was my first SLR Camera.
But travelling to Namibia and starting with Wildlife photography made me think that the Camera was not the right Camera anymore.
So I bought ( after our Namibia holiday November 2002) a :
Minolta Dynax 5
Lenses: Minolta AF Zoom A 28-80 mm / 3,5-5,6 D
Minolta AF Zoom A 75-300 MM / 4,5-5,6 D
( I just sold that one a couple of months ago)
Quite shortly after that I had a :
Nikon F 80
, a very nice and well build Camera.
Lenses: Nikon AF Nikkor 28-80 mm/ 1:3,3-5,6 G
Nikon Af Nikkor 70-300 mm/ 1: 4-5,6 G
After discovering that I just did use toooooo many films
I switched ( very recent) to the :
Nikon D 70 DSLR
which is quite similar to the F80.
I use it with the same lenses as the F80.I still travel with the F 80 because I just do not feel very confortable while travelling with just one camera ( and at the moment I cannot afford a second DSLR Body
).(One of my AE 1 bodies just broke down on a perfect day on 90 mile Beach in New Zealand
I am still surprised about the results I got with the new DSLR.
I have got two 2 GB Compact Flash Cards and use a Vosonic
X-drive Pro 3310 80 GB ,as backup during my travels.
I am using a Vanguard VT-432 Tripod and just made a Beanbag for KrugerÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
Moreover I always carry my Steiner Safari Binoculars 10x 26.
The last two Cameras are the ones I travel with.I already used them during our holidays in Namibia , Botswana and Zimbabwe November 2004 and in South Africa May 2005.
You can see the results on my flickr page ( the pics of May 2005 will come shortly, Addo already arrived,also see forum sightings and Public Picture Gallery)
I hope this will be of use .
So enjoy wildlife and Photography.
