    So, are any of you interested in that sort of thing? Do you own a camera (which one) or get a creative "high" out of it?

    Brogan, can we post our pics here?

    I used to be into it a lot.
    I had a Canon EOS 1, a ton of lenses, converters, filters, tripod, etc.
    I've got thousands of prints and negatives that I keep meaning to scan but never get around to it.
    I've got pic's from everywhere I visited; UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Turkey, Kazakhstan, etc.

    Of course.
    You can just attach them to posts using "Upload File" below the posting window but if you want to embed them you're probably better off using a free image hosting service like Imageshack.

    I have one too, but I rarely use it for my photographs, just for work. (And I'm a Nikon fan, I use the D700).
    Don't believe that you need a high-end camera to make a good picture.
    This one was made with EOS 300D.

    <spits> LOL

    I've always been a Canon man.
    If I ever get another camera (a DSLR this time) then it will be a Canon.

    Make no mistake, I think the 1D is a truly phenomenal camera, and a brilliant piece of engineering, but Nikon feels better. I can't really describe or explain it, I just have a better feeling when i hold a Nikon camera. :dunno:

    Here's one I took from the lounge a few years ago.

    It was with a cheap Fuji so the quality isn't great.

    Keep 'em coming guys, some good shots there.

    I'll have a root through the files on my PC and see if there's anything interesting.
    Most of my stuff is buildings/architectural, I never really did much portrait or landscape stuff.

    I've had a play with a mate's Nikon D9000 - it's astonishing what a novice like me can take with one of those

    Currently I've only got an old 5mp Sony T1 and now the DSP chip has gone so everything is green.

    Here is a few it took in long service

    The first one is photchopp'd colour wise but it's where my gramps died just after D-Day (the original suicide bomber - he ran into the pillbox with a satchel full of grenades with 1 pin missing - got the MC for that one)

    I have some more but that would involve turning the desktop on and it's too late for that, will post them later.

    It's not how big your equipment is McZ, it's how you use it.
    At least that's what I keep getting told... :unsure:

    Couple of pictures I'm quite pleased with. One taken with an HP digital camera and the other with a Fuji digital camera. (no idea what make and model)

    Lenses are clever bits of kit.

    Here are a couple of images I took earlier to check whether the camera and lens still work (after that twat from Glasgow Taxis dropped it on the floor >:().

    This first image was taken at full zoom, wide open with an f stop of 5.6.
    It's not a particularly impressive image, I was just focussing on the white buoy in the water.
    f5.6.jpg
    As the aperture is so large (small f number), the depth of field is quite shallow and only the objects in the vicinity of the focussing point are in focus.

    This second image is taken from exactly the same spot, again at full zoom and focussing on the same white buoy but with an f stop of 36.
    f36.jpg
    The difference, I'm sure you'll agree, is immediately apparent. The depth of field is a lot larger and as such, both near and far objects are in focus (within the minimum focussing distance of the lens).

    In the first image you wouldn't even know there were raindrops on the window, or even that there was a window there.

    So that's just a simple guide to how changing the f stop (usually the AV setting on the dial) can give you drastically different images.

    Some great shots there.
    Presumably you used a telescope for the moon shots?
