Just curious... isn't the idea of this thread is to post images made FAIRLY RECENTLY with older/cheap gear we still currently use? 
There are some cool shots here, but I think it's lame if you are rummaging through your archives to find your mom's favorite photo.

Nah, I didn't have any kind of "time limit" in mind when this thread was started. I just wanted to see people post nice images with equipment considered antiquated (film, 10D, 1Ds era stuff) or low-tech (point-and-shoots, cell phones). In retrospect, I could have articulated that better in the thread title.

Anyhow, here's another oldie from my 20D. The 10-22 can have some crazy distortion when this close to the subject, so it was always critical to get the angles right.

Why do you think it's lame to dig through archives?  Maybe you should do it... It's quite entertaining  :)  There are some great photos on here and fail to understand the comment about our mothers' favorite photos.

To appease anyone who is unhappy with the idea of rummaging through old photos, here is one shot with my G5 in late March.  After I got a G11, the G5 got "rebirthed" as an infrared camera.

9 years ago, not exactly cheap (Canon 10D with 28-105 lens) but definitely old :)



What fun it was!

Canon T2i (550D) on cowboy shoulder mount ($25, cheap but not old), using Leitz Summilux-R 50mm f/1.4 from 1976 (old but not cheap, at least by vintage glass standards)

Some of the photos posted in this thread have been taken using what is still my 'current' digital camera.  It's probably time for me to upgrade...  :-\
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

Heh, don't sweat it, I still use 5D, 20D and 40D. No problems with them.

Speaking of cheap gear, here is something shot with Nikon Coolpix S3000:

I like the photo for a reason that I cannot explain, despite the fact that the picture is blurry due to long hand hold time.

Now if I just could find out where I have put the stuff taken with Minolta's pocket film camera...

That's gorgeous...  I don't like the surreal look of most infrared shots but this looks great!
