Smack53's current gear

Canon PowerShot A510
Canon PowerShot G12
Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
This is the camera that I learned photography with. Used it during the roughest days of my life, battling cancer. Will never part with it.
My Favorite Camera. Unfortunately, the lens has failed for a second time, so I will not be getting it repaired.
This was a great walk around camera with the right amount of focal length for me. Just the right amount of control over the settings.
Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
Fujifilm FinePix A800
Nikon Coolpix P7000
Unbelievable focal range. Slow focusing when compared to my old SX150. A fun camera though. Really love the Wireless connection feature for the Canon Camera Connect app.
Actual camera is the FinePix A805. Got it real cheap. Does good with images as the sensor is as large as the Canon PowerShot G12. Not much control over settings. Have to use scene modes a lot to get the most out of this camera.
S L O W shot to shot times, but great image quality with really nice focusing system.
Nikon D100
Nikon D300
Nikon D3100
For an old 6MP camera, this does really nice images. Not much in the way of Auto modes, so a good camera to learn on.
My favorite DSLR. I love the ergonomics. Too bad it's so heavy. Now replaced with the Z50, but I still prefer the Optical Viewfinder.
Decent reliable camera. Not outstanding in any category, but does most things good enough. This is my work camera for engineering field/site visits. It just works well for that.
Nikon Z50
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR
My new favorite camera. Very light weight, great ergonomics, rugged camera. Very good battery life, a little noisy at higher ISO's. Newest version of Nikon SnapBridge works really well with my Android phone.
Decent lens at a bargain price. Very good for landscape images.
This is my favorite landscape lens. I've used it so much the focus motor needs repair. Bought it used so I can't complain.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR

Nikon Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR
Nikon Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm F4.5-6.3 VR
Amazing for a Kit Lens. Real sharp.
My new favorite Landscape Lens for the Z50.
A really nice lens overall for a kit lens. I was taken back by the sharpness.
Tamron 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC
I love the focal range of this lens. This is my work lens for my D3100.

Received this camera along with several others from a friend, and sold it shortly after. Plagued with many issues due to its age. Also no image stabilization and very slow record times. Images were not very good, needed a lot of post processing.
