Samsung phone and tab, but my brother in law just picked up that Sony P&S RX something and it's a great piece of kit.

iPhone   :o

Yes, I noticed that was conspicuously absent from the list, although I'm pretty sure it is the best selling camera in the world.

It's a phone that takes pictures, is it not?  ;)

More of a camera that makes phone calls.

I have been using a panasonic mirrorless for quite some time now (GF1 and now GX1) for when I want to travel with a much lighter and smaller set of kit.  I have been considering moving to the Sony mirrorless (Nex6 or Nex7) due to the better (and built in) EVF but I really like the smaller micro 4/3 lenses.

Waiting to see if Canon will ever really try to compete in the enthusiast mirrorless area but so far it feels like they don't want to really try in this area.

Hasselblad Xpan II.

Using it is a real antidote to the often 'snap happy' approach that a digital DSLR can sometime encourage.

I too would like the option for two choices. I use my Olympus TG1 for watersports and bring it along whenever things are going to get bumpy. I reach for my 5D whenever 35mm won't do. But my x100s is with me about 75% of the time.

Hi Kidnaper,
How do you like your new x100s? You have any photos taken with x100s under low light? I'm interested to buy one. Thanks in advance, Dylan

Is there another camera worth my time other than Canon..?


...   ;D  ...

To each his own.  In addition to my Canon gear (growing unused at present), I use my Nikon D800E most, then the D800, and I carry on my belt the Nikon S800C for when I need to use the internet directly or use the S800C to transmit my SD card data from the bigger Nikons to the internet.  I also use an ASUS table that has 1920 x 1080 screen for a wonderful image and that has a built in SD reader/writer in the keyboard as a fully functional USB port that I can hook on a portable hard drive with 500GB or more of storage for when I'm on the road. I could use multiple externals if I needed more space.  Just don't try to use the camera on the Asus tablet because the shots are pretty bad.  My D7100 just shipped today that will take the place of my beloved 60D (with the exception of the low level macro shots that are greatly helped with the tilt screen).

Mamiya.  Occassionally Yashica and Minolta.  You're missing all of the cool brands.

Cameras (besides Canon) in order of most use:
Cosina Voigtländer (Bessa L)
Mamiya (645AF)
Kiev (88CM and 60)
Pentacon (6)
Petri (7s Rangefinder)
Nikon (Nikonos V, just got it from a mate but haven't even done a test roll yet)

Non-Canon Lenses in order of use:
Zeiss (mostly on the P6-variants, can't afford ZE prices)
Sigma (8-16mm gets a fair workout on the 7D)
Cosina Voigtländer (21mm f/4 is a damn fine lens)
RokiBowYang (35/1.4, thanks to Roger at LensRentals I can't call it anything else)
KMZ (for the soviet versions of the P6-mount lenses, plus the M42 Jupiter, Helios, Cyclop, Tair, and Mir)
Lensbaby (almost everything except the 80mm and 35mm)
... and various others, like Asahi Pentax (Takumars), Olympus OM macro lenses, Tokina (a little-used 17mm), a collection of Schneider Kreuznach for some of the Kodak Retina models, and some that I have no idea what they are or where they came from.
Too much gear, too little space.

GoPro!

Hero 3 Black and Hero 2 - They go everywhere with me. If Canon implemented a video mode that had the similar features as the Hero 3 Black (720p120, 1080p60, 2.7k, different FOV/crop modes, Protune-style mode) on their next DSLR's, or even in an EOS-C or EOS-M camera, then I would pay 1DX money for it, even if it was a Rebel series camera shooting h.264.

5dmkII, 60D, 70-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, Sigma 150-500mm.

Nikon D600 and 85/1.8G - an amazing combo. I'll be expanding my Nikon kit soon enough. I'm particularly interested in manual focus lenses, and some old Nikkor Ai-S can be bought at fair prices and still hold their ground pretty well against modern lenses.
