* Sony DSC-P100 5MP Digital
* Canon EOS 300 body with Canon 28-200mm lens
* Sony video camera 16mm film (seldom used these days after I got a 1G memory stick for the digicam - it is far too convenient to use as compared to lugging the video camera around)..

Another thing I found is - if you try capturing the 16mm video camera's output on PC via a TV Tuner card, there is a reasonably high loss in video quality. So, have been preserving all my original tapes..

And no camera is good unless handled with a good tripod.. so, got myself a couple - 60" and 48"..

Agree with you on having a good tripod and employ it as much as possible..

Didn't get that "couple - 60" and 48"..". Interested to know.

Since the forum market section is for auto parts only, where can I post the sale details?
try JJmetha.com.

The Sony 717 is a perfectly good digicam if oen can correct the reds in photoshop.

BTW digicam have horrible resale value. I find that they can be better used if left at a relative's place or let your kids use them.

I have a N80, 28-105, 70-300ED, 50/1.8, SB50Dx, 62mm filters and polarisers, etc.. but only was quoted 20,000 for them. I decided to keep the camera and lenses. My Canon G2 with 420EX would fetch half that. Both systems cost the same at time of purchase. The Canon was bought 6 months later.

One day I will get a reall good Nikon digicam (like the D200) and 2 f/2.8 zoom lenses (like the 17-55 and 70-200 or 80-200). I will then use my old lenses as a travel kit.

Right now digicam's still leave a bit to be desired.

a) I am not adept at photoshop and reall wish digicams would allow you to set the print size (say 4x6, 5x7, 6x8, 8x10).

b) dust on the CCD still bothers me. I tend to take most of my shots outdoors and in dusty or sometimes wet conditions

c) a good cheap APS wide prime (like the 35/2) is still not available. the nearest 20/2.8 is expensive and not fast enough for night safaris. I dont think Nikon will use CCDs bigger than APS for a while.

d) Canon users have it a bit easier. I am still so stuck on Nikon's ease of use that I cant get my hands around a Canon. I used the D20 with a 17-85 but found it uncomfortable. BTW most Indian magazines like India Today use Canon digSLRs almost exclusively.

Isn't this info incomplete without F-stop data?

Pathak, it looks like you practically own the entire Nikon family...

Oh, it is a great camera even without photoshop treatment. It has manual controls that can put Entry level dSLRs (350D/D70s) to shame. Only problem is I can't switch to better lenses.

True, that's why I have decided to keep it until it keeps working.

This bothers me too, therefore I have taken the less trodden path and joined the Olympus family. Olympus DSLRs come with anti-dust technology. I ordered the Olympus E500 this weekend on Amazon.com. My boss will be getting it from US in couple of weeks.

Dust is what scares me from the 350D. So I was thinking of R1. But you never know, I may go for the rebel and a nylon makup brush

i dont think it should be a spot of bother unless you change lenses often in those dusty conditions. infact i havent come across this problem in the last two and half years with my digital rebel.

Trust me, he isn't. But if landscape photography was a high paying field, he might have switched professions long back.
