Pardus,

I've got the Sigma (50-500). Bought for my Africa Trip last year. The pictures are very sharp, the focus quiet and fast, and obviously the range is great. In 2 seconds you can get a nice overall shot and a ultra close-up. For the money its a great deal.

I just got rid of my Olympus D-550 (Gave it to my son) and got a Olympus C750 UZ, 4 megapixal, 10X Optical, 4X Digital, with a 512 MB card..I am sooo excited to use it! :)

All these fancy cameras sound pretty impressive. Could be the stuff that a new thread warrants ...

Actually the only reason I upgraded (I guess) is because I wanted to take my camera to Ireland...alas my camera was so old they didn't even sell BIGGER cards. I liked my camera, but I could only take about 40 good quality pictures with it. With the new one I can take 500 good guality pictures yet it is still small enough to travel well.:)

Nikon D70 + 24-120mm VR lens.
Minolta X-700, 50mm, 28-85mm, 70-300mm.
Casio Q-VR61.

I have to plug the importance of CERTAIN technology. My 24-120mm is possibly the most versatile zoom lens out there. It costs about twice as much as the standard kit lens but the zoom range and vibration reduction technology allows me to go without a bulky tripod for most situations. I put a premium on my personal energy level at the end of a long travel day.

Yes, image quality is important, but you can't loose sight of the whole experience.

I have a canon slr, i'll be honest and say i don't know what type it is, i think its a eos 300, Pardus would know, i bought it secondhand of him just over a year ago, i also have an olympus point and shoot, i don't know that much about photography so any decent photos i have are by pure chance or stubborness ( for one desert sunrise i took 36 shots )

All this makes me think I may as well use the camera in my phone

i know very little about cameras. All i know is that mine is digital, 4.0 megapixels, and 3 x optical zoom. It takes great photos and you shouldn't need anything more than that if you want to be a snap-happy amateur like me!!!!

Good idea I've seen a few people doing it, though some have problems focussing

Actually I've been amazed with the photo quality, the phone is the new Motorola V3. There are brightness options and 4x digital zoom on it plus the storage seems quite good. The display on it is brilliant.

I've just been setting it up with my network to send pictures and for accessing the net. The only catch seems to be that Motorola dont provide the complete software on the cd. Until you buy the complete software online, cost £20 you cant upload photo's. Unlike other phones you get the cable but you do get all the software. It also seems that to send text's with pictures the most you have to pay is 40p (in the developing world) but I think 25p is the average cost. Cheaper than a letter.

Never mind, the phone cost me nothing I'd never had an upgrade even though I had a contract for over 7 years because I loved my old Sony Z7. So when I heard that people got their upgrades in the post I thought it was about time I had one too
