    You didn't specify what kind of camera, so:
    Primarily a Canon Rebel 2000 (35mm)
    Also use a 1974-ish Minolta SRT-101 and the camera on my SonyEricsson S710a.
    I also own a P.O.S. Seagull TLR, and a Kodak 8mm movie camera. I need to get some film for that one.

    Well, since it's in the digital video rather than the digital photography forum, I'm assuming he's talking about video cameras.

    I use a Sony HC90 (don't think my use deserves the name 'shooting')

    Pentax 330RS (getting old, but still works well and fits easily in a pocket)

    Minolta X-370 with a Minolta 28 mm, a 50mm, a Vivitar 70-210, winder and other little bits . . .

    Pentax ME - Like a brick, used for snowboarding / hiking and preventing cars from rolling down hills.

    Kodak Kodamatic No.1 Folder (620) from 1938. Kind of fun, but not so useful since I have to roll my own film.

    Some homebuilt pinhole cameras.

    Edit: Sorry all, I seem to have missed the point - and have no digital video camera - just an old 8mm Sony movie camera that doesn't see much use.

    Kodak EasyShare 3something.

    It's a 3.2MP with a 3x digital zoom.

    It's served me well in Canada and the States but I want something with more res and an optical zoom. Some more manual control would be nice as well. I'm no professional but I can take some good pickies with the camera I have now but it takes some editing afterwards. I don't know if it's just me but it seems to be unable to deal with the Australian light. I bought it in Canada and it tends to overexpose everything when the sun's out. I can dial out some of the light that it measures but I find myself still having to edit them in iPhoto to get the light just right.

    Ah well, roll on Christmas. Now that I know I'm not getting the new iPod I'm hoping for either a new camera or a new phone.

    Sony DSC W12....5 Megapixels, 3x optical zoom. a pretty nice camera for casual pointing and shooting, and can do a bunch of artistic stuff like long exposure, etc.

    Oh, OK. I just click onto the post on the MR front page. I've rarely ventured into the forums themselves.

    Just went 68k. Cool.

    The question is about Video Cameras

    Jeez... doesn't anyone read the first few posts of a thread or the forum title before answering the question? :p

    That's the video camera I have too... works great and I like the small size. :) Don't use it often enough though.

    I have a Canon XL1. A great camera by most people's standards, but for me it's age is beggining to catch up with it. Hopefully I'll be able to swtch to a Panasonic HVX200 in the not too distant future.

    Some really old and crappy Sony Camcorder (Let's put it this way, I can't plug it in to my eMac; It's a tape one).

    Some cheapo Sony that uses digi8 tape. Got it 4 years ago.

    And for technicolor:

    Ditto, it's a lovely camera but I don't use it enough.

    captainoats: What's the problem you've got with the camera? I've not had any problems with mine. Can't fault it. I'm not picking on you...just want to help :D
