Miranda MS-1 Super SLR:
Although the Miranda MS-1 Super is a normal 35mm Single Lens Reflex camera, (that is to say it is not digital)! I have included it on the site as it is the first SLR camera that I had that was up to taking a decent picture and the camera that eventually led to the DSLR camera that I am using now.

Fujifilm DX10:
This was my first ever true digital camera, a Fujifilm DX-10 bought as a gift in 1999. It had no optical zoom lens so to speak only a 1.6 times digital zoom. Using the relatively new at the time Smart Media card it made the camera that much smaller than the ones that used 3.5 inch 1.44 MB floppy discs plus larger memory sizes up to 64 MB were available in the Smart Media card format.

Fujifilm Finepix 2600 Zoom:
The Fujifilm Finepix 2600 Zoom was a few steps up from the Fujifilm DX10 and even boasted a three times optical zoom on this model. This was my second digital camera that I purchased to replace the Fujifilm DX10, this was due to damage to the DX-10 and repair was not cost effective.

Fujifilm Finepix F420:
I saw this camera in a shop window and at the time was impressed with how small it was in comparison to other digital cameras on the market. I fancied an upgrade and this camera suited my needs at the time mainly because of the six million pixel resolution and it's small size. The old Smart Media card was replaced with the new smaller Olympus or Fujifilm xD memory card.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W1:
A friend of mine showed me some pictures he had taken with his Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 five million pixel compact camera and I was so impressed that I had to have one myself. The images taken with the Sony camera seemed so much better than the Fujifilm Finepix F420 which did take pretty good pictures. The colours seemed more natural and the image quality was a lot sharper using the Sony.

Olympus E-500 DSLR:
At last an affordable Digital Single Lens Reflex camera to replace the 35mm film Miranda MS-1 Super camera. The Olympus E-500 DSLR boasts an eight million pixel "Four Thirds" CCD sensor which has been purposely designed by Olympus along with a range of interchangeable lenses using the same "bayonet" method as some SLR cameras.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W170:
Having been so impressed with the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 five million pixel compact camera I thought that a ten million pixel camera would be even better and I was right. The Sony Cybershot DSC-W170 has a whole range of new features programmed into it and it is a lot smaller than the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 as you would expect with changes in technology.

Olympus E-510 DSLR:
Aside from having a larger ten million pixel "Four Thirds" CCD sensor the Olympus E-510 DSLR has quite a few modifications to it including it's "Live View" option to use the screen rather than the viewfinder to frame the picture and a built in "Image Stabaliser" that works with all available lenses using the Olympus "Four Thirds" fit.

Sony Cybershot DSC-S90:
I was given this camera by a friend to mess around with to try and capture video footage with it rather than using it for taking pictures although it can obviously be used for that function as well. Not really designed with video capture in mind it tended to be somewhat hit and miss as it kept shutting down on me when I used it on my motorbike, although this could be down to vibration!

MD80 Mini DV Camera:
Taking the video camera idea a bit further I purchased myself a MD80 Mini DV camera from Amazon for £20 including a 2 GB Micro SD Card, a USB adapter, numerous brackets and a charger. The idea is to mount it on my motorbike to capture video footage when out and about on various ride outs with friends.
