The only digital camera I own...
Jun 21, 2012

A life-long dedicated Nikon man, I bought my first Nikon digital camera back in the very late 90s. That was the very cool indeed and twisty Coolpix 950.

When the D70 hit the camera world like a cyclone in 2004, I got my first Nikon DSLR, along with a gazillion other people. From there I got a D2Hs to shoot sports. Not my favorite camera in the world, I replaced it with a pair of D80s. The D80, with its D2x-lite sensor, was and still is one of my favorite cameras ever.

But once you get used to a pro body in your hand, you can never really be happy with a consumer-grade camera again especially when you’re using your gear in pro-settings and putting it all through the wear and tear of celebrity rope lines or basketball baselines.

So when the D3 came into existence, the first full-frame digital Nikon, I got one of those. Soon I backed it up with a D200 and then I added the D3′s little brother, the D700.

Wow. I’m losing track. That’s a lot of cameras. I know some of you have me beat by a mile, too. You know who you are.

I threw in a Lumix LX3, a kicky little gem that set the standard for point and shoot cameras for more years than it should have.

Then… I bought a Leica M9. The first full frame Leica M camera was mine. I shot the M9 for a solid year. 24k shutter trips. It was a love/hate relationship.

They’re now all gone. Every one of them.

The only digital camera I currently own is the Fuji X100. And I love it.
