My Cameras: Nikon D40, Canon Powershots S3 IS and A460

Friends and colleagues have often ask what camera I use for taking my photographs. So today, I'm going to do a special post covering the cameras I use (next time I can just point them to my blog post LOL). Ladies and gentlemen, I present you what I use for my photography hobby (I'm not a freelancer as many thought I am):

Nikon D40 with the standard 18-55mm lens. I bought an additional 18-200mm lens and the SB600 speedlight. It took me almost a year to decide getting a DSLR due to budget reason and I finally took the plunge on April this year. I was yearning for a D80 but decided to settle for this one and add on the accessories. Here's the link to photos taken using D40 on my blog. (Related posts: 1 and 2)

The Canon Powershot S3 IS is my favourite camera before I got the DSLR. Its powerful 12x optical zoom (with Optical Image Stabilization) is what I like best, including the super-macro function. Here's the link to photos taken using S3 IS on my blog.

And lastly, here's the Canon Powershot A460 I use for my day-to-day photos. They're usually food photos I took during lunch and other office occassions. I can't seem to detach myself from my camera, so this smaller gadget is good to follow me around. Here's the link to photos taken using A460 on my blog.

I am currently learning how to do photo post-processing. I'm thrilled to know that Rames, a blog friend will be launching his Photoshop tutorial soon. Can't wait!
