I use a Nikon D40 for all my digital work, its a great little workhorse of a camera, its on the budget end of the market but has all the features of its more expensive brothers. As a learning tool it a wonderful easy camera to use, and i’d well recommend one.

For more information i’d recommend you visit or wikipedia.

Additional Kit:

Olympus OM-10

The OM10 is a recent aquisition and i’m still learning how to use it properly. Its a fully manual film camera that was manufactured between 1979 and 1987, so its almost as old as I am. Its pretty basic but it does everything that I need an i’m having a lot of fun using it.

For more information you can check out Camerapedia or Wikipedia.

Additional Kit:

  • 35mm prime lens
  • 50mm prime lens
  • 70 – 150mm telephoto lens

Chinon CM-4s

Another recent aquisition is a Chinon CM-4s (circa 1982), this was in reasonable condition with the exception of the film rewind knob w was missing. In true student fashion, i’ve managed to bodge a temporary repair (*cough* with a paperclip), until a replacement part can be aquired.

Additional Kit

  • 50mm prime
  • 200mm sigma telephoto

Not really a camera per se, but does pack a nifty 8.1 megapixel camera.
