I'm just wondering what cameras and camcorders do you own and use? List them here! For 6 years I had the Fuji s9100: http://www.amazon.com/Fujifilm-Finepix-Digital-Wide-Angle-Optical/dp/B000GFWFZ2
But just last week I bought a Sony DSC HX300, best package deal here, I bought it for $449 but now a week later the kit is $439 : http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSC-HX300-Digital-Optical-Accessory/dp/B00CAYV5GM/ref=pd_cp_p_1
I'm still learning how to use the camera, but it's a massive improvement over my old Fuji s9100!

I use this to take 3d photos, but I bought it maybe 2 to 3 years ago at $300. Amazing price of just $179 on amazon now: http://www.amazon.com/Fujifilm-FinePix-Real-3D-W3/dp/B003ZHV70M

For my camcorder, I bought this in summer 2009 and I thought it was discontinued, but its still sold on amazon. It take great 1080p hd video but it doesn't probably have the image stabilization that my new HX300 camera has. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003S082KE/ref=asc_df_B003S082KE2848480?smid=A1K4QO6GF580VC&tag=dealtmp71244-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395105&creativeASIN=B003S082KE

I know I don't have a professional level full frame DSLR but I can't afford that now. So Photoshop is my helping aid.

Nikon is still using their old lens format. If you can get just a digital platform and some old lenses for cheap you can have some pretty good results...

No autofocus, but focusing and then pressing the shutter button its probably the same hussle as pressing the autofocus button and then pressing the shutter button fully.

Not to mention that since manual focus lenses dont usually bother with motors and weight of the elements have some pretty good quality glass.

Nikon used to make an f1.1 lens...



As for the "full frame" (film square size sensor) maybe you wanna try film.

Nikon before it went all digital made a last film SLR:


Not only it has full frame sensor data collection performance but its analog therefore no "digital artifacts", need for anti-alliazing etc...

But its gonna cost you about 3euro to develop 36 pictures just to the negatives and then if you want to scan them its better to print to a bigger paper format so you can get most of your scanning.

You can print those wall-sized... and you can photoshop all you want.

If a modern SLR camera is only good for a few thousand shots before the shutter brakes down and you need to replace it and taking in mind that a modern full frame DSLR costs about 10times of what this one would cost new its probably the same money... But it is more inconvinient.

But its what digital cameras just recently managed to achieve in terms of data collected from the sensor and its much simpler and less expensive.

Not that there is anything wrong with a modern full frame DSLR...
