Alright... The other poll is going well and I see digital 35mm format is overwhelmingly the camera of choice. Now letís see what is your brand of choice for your camera.

Regardless of brand, I've always been a firm believer that a good artist can paint with a nail. A good painter an expensive brush does not make! It's about the artist and not the tools. And so, with that, I think that all of this chest thumping about Canon or Nikon being the best is pernicious blather. "Your Schwart is bigger than mine", you say? Well, I say it's not the size of the Schwartz that matters; it's how you use it. With all of the petty arguments about Canon vs. Nikon, ad nauseum, I guess it's safe to say that the photographers of years gone by all suck because they didn't have a 1.21 Gigawatt Hasselfree digital camera and so they couldn't create beautiful photos. I say BULLSH*T. Just give me a device that has an aperture that opens and closes as fast or as slow as I want it to and give me some good glass and I'm happy. I don't care if it makes coffee, has a 2" LCD, writes at 48x, or whatever. It's the ARTIST not the tools!!!
Good day sir!!
Mike

I agree about the camera being a tool and the photographer's technique being the important part.

However, Canon all the way baybee...

You left out a bunch of brands. Wonder how frequently "other" would be checked.

Mine is a Panasonic. I think the plastic is OK. In a couple months I'll post results and folks can judge.

I would have put more options but 8 was the max allowed... other would have been a good idea had I thought of it.

I shoot with a Canon 35mm digital and my backup camera is a Minolta 35mm film camera.

I don't see this as a brand bashing thread, but just as a way of gathering some information. I'm currently using an Olympus E-1 as my primary camera with a Canon 10D as my backup and a Canon S-70 as an auxiliary. If I had the money, I'd get a 5D, not so much for the extra pixels as for the real 35mm format. One of the main reasons that I was attracted to the E-1 was the 4/3 format.

I did start with a Nikon but I went to Canon. I now have a 20D and I can't put it down. I love this camera..
