Your Current Cameras
I remember a few years back we had post like this on here and the other day I was at another photo board and someone had started a similar post so thought I start it up here. Will be interesting to see what everyone is using these days.......

What camera(s) do you current use for taking pictures which may include mentioning your back up camera or body if you have and use one. If you are using D-SLRs what lenses do you use. I am looking for cameras you currently use not every camera you own, just the ones you use on a regular basis.

I'll start this on off:

Fuji HS20
Fuji HS10
Olympus SW1050
