I started to take photographs in the mid 1950's, beginning with a box camera. The vast majority of the Africa pictures were taken with a Pentax Spotmatic, the colour ones as Kodachrome slides. For a short time I also owned a Mamiyaflex C220, a superb camera and a few of its pictures are in the Rhodesia galleries.
The early Canada pictures were taken with a Pentax KX and later a Pentax ME. The first digital photos were taken with a 2.1MP non-zoom Sony P&S, then with a Sony V1 or a Sony H1 I bought to get a longer reach.
My DSLR pictures in 2006 were taken with a Fuji S2 Pro, but since 2007 I have used a Nikon D80 and a Nikon D40X.
In May of 2010 I retired the Sony V1, the batteries were failing and replacements difficult to find and expensive. I purchased a Canon G11, which I like a lot. Then I purchased a Fuji 300EXR as a truly pocketable camera but found the results I got with it were mixed. So I recently purchased a 770EXR for a pocket camera, and like it so far.
Then lately I purchased a Nikon D5100 which I am starting to learn to use.
