    I just bought myself a Nikon Coolpix 4600. It's a nice point-and-shoot camera, definitely portable, and I also got it the Nikon gray neoprone case.

    In addition, I'm using a Kingston 512Mb SD card and Energizer 2500 mAh NiMH batteries.

    What kind of camera and accessories do you have?

    Edit: I did have an HP Photosport m305, but I didn't like it. I returned it and bought the Nikon instead.

    My Canon Powershot G1 is still hanging in there after 4+years and I'm not planning on replacing it unless I absolutely have to. I take most of my pics in the backcountry and it is a little heavy at 14 ounces.

    I bought a basic Targus case for it when I got it and still use it. I've checked out some other cases (specifically some of the molded cases) but haven't been impressed.

    I've got a spare Lithium Ion battery and a 1GB flash card because if I'm "checked out" for 5-6 days, I don't have the luxury of a re-charge or a transfer of pics.

    Amazing the cost of flash media today compared to 4 years ago. I just bought a Lexar 1 GB for under $80 when my 128 MB Lexar ran me close to $250 back in March 2001.

    If and when my G1 goes, I'm gonna go the digital SLR route...

    I have a Canon Digital Ixus i. It's a nice small camera, I recommend it to everyone who wants to have a snapshot camera.

    Still with my Powershot G5. Lovely camera so I see no need to change.

    Canon 300D (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 or whatever lens and 50mm f/1.4 lens)
    Canon PowerShot S50

    In terms of other accessories...bought the Canon backpack a couple of weeks ago. I bought it more because it's the cheapest seemingly usable backpack case, more than because it's Canon. It isn't too bad, really, for $40. :)

    i'm using my old faithful. It's a Canon PowerShot A40 w/ 64mb card. It's very old school but it should hold me until Canon makes a revision to their cyrrent A series line.

    Complete w/:

    I've got an Oregon Scientific thincam DS6618 that I got as a Christmas 2004 present. It's still in its sealed box - I've never opened it.

    Cannon makes some very sexy cameras (non SLR). I had my eyes on the Powershot sd400 5mp camera but it's a tad pricey.

    Anyone like Casio's Exilim line?

    I took my cousin's Exilim 4MP on vacation this past week. It is very sleek and well constructed, but it ends there. The screen may be large, but it's no of good quality. It has many functional scene modes. Low-light pictures are REALLY bad. Outside pics are OK.

    I really cannot recommend that camera, other than for people who need extreme portability and average picture quality,

    Is this thing designed so that it fits in a Type II PC Card slot? That would actually be kind of clever. Like that pocket organizer that's a PC card with an LCD on one the top. :)

    I've been reading some reviews and it seems that the EXZ750 is pretty good. One reviewer actually compares it to the Nikon D70, only small enough to fit in your pocket. The reviews were from Amazon.

    Speaking of Amazon, I bought my Coolpix earlier this week for $179.99 from them. Today I checked and the price is now $199.99.

    Nikon D70
    Kit lens (18-70mm)
    Nikkor 28-200 Lens (you should see the telescoping on it!)
    Canon V3
    LowePro Bag
    Coupla filters etc.

    The D70 is without doubt one of the best digital camera products of the digital age. The first real pro-sumer camera, with the emphasis on Pro. www.kenrockwell.com swears by his, and he has been shooting nikon for god knows how long!

    Does anyone have any experiences with the Nikon Coolpix line, the 5900 in particular? How do they compare in quality to the Canon A series?

    I'm just trying to breakout of my Canon fixation and explore the possibility of buying another brand.

    Still using a old canon s30. Got it when it first came out 3 or 4 yrs ago. Have a 256mb cf card, still takes good pics, and the wife actually knows how to use it. Would like to give it to my mom and get the new canon S2 IS.
