What's your stock.......

Recommended Posts



If I remember right, the longest skid marks ever measured were left my Jaguar......


Mustangs don't skid, they just go really fast in a straight line..

LOL Chuck, particularly with reference to speed and skid marks of which, being English, throws up a different connotation !


Good man.

Right - here's my list -


Sony RX100 M3 and a nice little padded carry case.


That's it!



Canon SLR kit long gone....   :D


Doesn't surprise me.  When I went on my last Toronto street photography trip, took my 2 cameras, the Canon with the large telephoto and the M2. Found I took 90% of the images with the Sony.  Hardly used the Canon.

My day to day working cameras are two Nikon D3's, each with about 350,000 frames on them.  They've both been rebuilt by Nikon on a number of occasions and just keep going.  Now that Nikon isn't supporting the D3 anymore, I'll have to upgrade to a D4 or D5 when they start to fail.


I have a D800 for commercial work, mainly because art directors want crazy huge image files.  I hardly ever use it.  Even on a 12x18 inch print, I can't see the difference between the 32 mb D800 files and the 12mb D3 files.


My go-to lenses are the 24-70mm and 70-200mm.  I have a 17-35mm, but I don't use it that much.  I have a 1980's era 28mm PC lens for architecture, and a TC-300 2X teleconverter on the 70-200mm for sports.


I just bought a Fuji X-Pro1 with an 18-55mm zoom lens, which I really like.  Walking around with a big D3 is a bit like driving in an armoured personnel carrier, so I'm enjoying the low key aspect of the Fuji, and it takes pretty nice pictures.


As for cars, I have a Ford Expedition and Ford a F-250 pick-up truck, and the two of them together aren't worth $5,000.

Can't remember all the cameras I have sold, but my favourite film camera was the XD7 as the first with both Aperture and Shutter priority settings as well as manual. When both gave up I had to soldier on with the A700 replacing shutter priority with a Program setting.

Currently use A58 for my heavy A-mount lenses (rarely due to age) and now use the Sony A6000 mostly with Sony's 10-18 mm W/A zoom and 55-210 zoom. Keep the 16-50 zoooom in the bag as I tend to haul out my trusted Sony RX100M3 for anything in betwen these two zoom lenses. The RX100M3 is just so good. Rarely do I need to reduce the actual 20Mp image size for Alamy. That happens for the A6000 now and then. I just think that the 24Mp sensor is too good for the zoom lenses or I am too critical as I have not had a rejection for ages. Long may it continue. Wondered if I was right to invest in Sony at the beginning, but I am convinced now they are the leaders of the pack - at least as far as quality in a small packet is concerned.

When I was a young child, I had a Kodak Instamatic.. it took a flash cube on the top and a roll of 36 exposure film could last me a couple of years.


As a teenager, I had a Cannon Megazoom 105.


In my early twenties, when digit cameras came out, i got an Olympus Camedia.


In my early thirties, I bought a Nikon D50 at Heathrow airport on my way out to Warsaw (where I was attending a business trip).


And for the last two or so years, I've been using a Nikon D7000.

I sold all my redundant (Canon and Mamiya RB67) kit this time last year since I built a comprehensive Fuji X. Apart from the Fuji kit I am just left with a Canon T90 and a beaten up Ftb for nostalgia's sake.  My remaining EOS3s (x2) will go when I find the rest of the bits. Getting rid of it all was very liberating.


The cash will sit in the bank for when I need (want) something. That might not be for a while as my photography has rather lost direction and purpose.

Slightly off topic, but I'm still surprised by the number of beginners who judge the ability of a camera solely by how 'powerful' the zoom lens is.   :D

or how many megapixels...




or sheer size.....

Until someone take the steps to progress from 'beginner' to 'enthusiast' at which point you start doing a bit of research, become more interested in technique and equipment, how would they know any better?

Megapixels and zoom length are the numbers which get advertised and hyped by your average consumer shop.
