The Camera Bag

The camera bag offers different choices.  Each is good for different types of photos.

I still have one of the first digital camera … an HP Photosmart R818.  It is a dandy little camera that tucks into a pocket and takes fairly reasonable photos.  But one I rarely use.


The Olympus SP 800UZ has a 30x optical zoom (used lots before I got the Nikon) and it has a wonderful super macro setting for amazing close ups of flowers and bugs.  This is my go to camera for macro shots.



The Canon Rebel T1i EOS 500D is my DSLR camera.  It has 15.1 megapixels and full HD video.  I have 2 lenses … the standard 20-55 mm lens and an EF S55-250mm lens.  Both lenses have image stabilizers.  I love this camera for taking long distance shots and the rapid fire button helps capture wildlife.  I’d love a bigger telephoto lens but they are a lot of money.



A Nikon Coolpix P510 comes with 16.1 megabpixels and a 42x wide angle zoom, along with full HD movie features.  This one gives me the bigger zoom and lets me be the paparazzi to the birds.  This is the point and shoot camera I carry in my bag because you never know when that perfect photo opportunity comes along.


Then of course there is the iphone camera with a little digital zoom lens.  I also have the camera on my iPad and the latest one has slow motion video which I’m just experimenting with.

The latest addition to the camera bag is a Nikon P900 with a powerful zoom of 83x.  I chose this camera instead of a DSLR or another lens for my Canon because I don’t have to carry around different lenses and keep changing them.  This camera allows me to zoom in as little or as much as I want.  It does require a steady hand, a monopod or a tripod.
