What's in your (camera) kit?
« on: May 12, 2013, 05:29:56 PM »
Seeing how people are getting more involved in and excited about photography, thanks to Something Fishy, got me wondering
what do people currently have in their kit?

Chime in, whether you own a simple P&S, or serious pro equipment.

Just my plain old Canon PowerShot, a 8GB card, and a 32GB card

And for most of the other times my iPhone 5 is just as good.

I find that when printing Iphone 5 pics, even the clearest looking ones they come out a bit blurry. Did you notice that?

You should try it to see if you should be shooting with your camera and not your phone.
