What kind of camera do you use to photograph your plants and blooms?

by FigTree



I am not a photo snob or anything, just want to know the different kind of cameras and lenses everyone uses for their photographs.


photography, lenses, gardening photos


Lately, I have really switched to the iPhone camera... the quality is great for the web and sharing, I can easily post it to whatever online site or mobile service I want, and most importantly, I always have it in my pocket!

I use a Canon EOS 20D with a 18-55 mm. I also use a Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, but it tends toward noise so I usually use my 20D.

Nothing fancy here, just a Cannon Power Shot A2000 IS (image Stablizer). This camera has some bells and whistles that would proally help me to take more professional pictures - have not figured them out yet. Actually, I am afraid to mess it up and have not delved into the program features of the camera.

I'm using a Fuji Finepix S5000 with the stock lens and sometime the wide angle adapter. I had the get the ccd chip replaced recently but it was worth the hundred buck to keep what is the coolest little digital SLR type camera I've run into.

I have an Olympus e-510 cameral and love it. I have three lenses for it, don't use the little one much. Like the 70-300mm lens a lot. It's easy to use.

I actually have a Cannon Point and Shoot-- seems to be enough for me.

You really do not want to know. I am the worst photographer.

Some great answers from FB: <br/> <br/>-I use a Nikon D200, lens 18-200 mm. My husband uses my old Nikon point and shoot. Frequently, his shots are equal to or better than mine. <br/> <br/>-My Nikon. Love it! <br/> <br/>-HP PhotoSmart M415 <br/> <br/>-Nikon D5000 <br/> <br/>-It&#x27;s a Kodak Z1015 IS <br/> <br/>-a canon powershot with some fancy features; essentially, a point and shoot on steroids; but I long for a grown up camera... <br/> <br/>-Canon EOS Rebel, but I want a 60mm, 2.8 macro lens for closeups. Great camera but the photographer still needs some work.

I use a Canon 40D with different lens... lately the macro lens is my favorite now that we&#x27;re getting all these awesome blooms popping up everywhere! I also use my iPhone when I&#x27;m out and about, and the picture quality is surprisingly great...

I use a cannon 12D and I use a 50mm lens with it. It is a little old, but it works great. I still love film though... although it seems like it is going away very fast.
