I've been taking digital photos since 1998, and I've enjoyed expanding my knowledge, experience, and equipment since then.
In 1998, I started out in digital photography with an early digital camera, a Kodak DC 210 (Kodak has since gone out of the camera business!). I later replaced this with a Canon Powershot A30, then a Canon Powershot A640. It was my experience with the A640 that made me loyal to the Canon brand--because I put that Powershot A640 through its paces--in terrible weather--rainy, sleet, snow, ice--for literally tens of thousands of photos, and it worked very well (even works today!).
In August 2008, I decided on a small-frame digital SLR camera. By 2012, I had reasons to get a full-frame camera.
To give an idea of my background and cameras, here are photos I've taken with my various cameras.
