Default What camera does Steve use?

There was recently a campaign asking, "What would Jesus drive?"

Well, I want to know "What camera does Steve use?" If you feel that answering will hamper your impartiality, you don't have to answer...just curiousity.

Mike_PEAT,
When I first found Steves site think there was 3 reviews and he seemed partail to the Ricoh RDC-2. Running a search for the Ricoh as I had one to brought me here. I would not be surprised if he does not have to buy cams anymore as popular and well run this site is.

We use a Nikon Coolpix 990 and 995 for all of our product photos and 360 virtual tour pictures. For the rest of my shooting I use either a Nikon D100 or whatever camera I happen to be reviewing at the time.

And no, I was not paid by Nikon to say this. It's hard to beat a swiveling-lens Nikon on a tripod for doing product shots. You can leave the camera in macro mode all the time and tilt the lens or LCD to match your sitting height. I like the D100 because I already have a good assortment of Nikkor glass and feel the most comfortable with a real SLR.

As you know, the Nikon D100's D-TTL flash is not compatible in TTL with any of the Macro Ringlights available at this time. I have been trying for quite a while to get my Nikon D100 to work automatically with the SB-29 macro ringlight. Yes, I could always, and have used the manual mode with bracketing, but that's a major hassle. I have finally succeeded with a "backdoor" method, and with superb results! If you, or any of your readers would be interested in how I did this, I would be willing to submit a "how to" article. This scheme should work with any brand of the Nikon Mount ringlights.

What happened to the 4500 you were using for product shots?

The CP99x was @ the beginning of the year... and replaced by the 4500 was @ the end (2003)! :lol: :lol: :lol:
