Which digital camera do you use?
I would think most people have some kind of digital camera these days. From the basic cell phone cam, all the way up to a beautiful and complex digital SLR.
I happen be in the middle, and have a few mid-range compacts. From my favorite (and what you see most of the time here on Hoboken411) is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2. I like this primarily because it has a fantastic Leica wide-angle 28mm lens. Perfect for getting a lot of information on the screen, but not sacrificing vertical screen real estate. Excellent battery life, and vibrant color. It also has some advanced manual controls such as focus, aperture, and shutter. It can take Hi-Def video as well.
Also good to have on standby is a very compact point and shoot such as the Canon SD series. I use an older 5.0 mega-pixel (Powershot SD450) unit to just have as reserve, or if I have a scene where I’d like to have multiple people shooting the photos (bars, parties, fires, etc).
While I’ve strongly considered and came close to acquiring a professional model, the nature of my work would make that burdensome to carry around 5 miles a day. One day soon for special projects, or I could always ask 411 reader Furey to accompany me on a few missions.
Which one do you use, and why? If you don’t have one, why not? Decent cameras are relatively inexpensive these days, and it’s nice to capture life every now and then.
