What else is in my digital camera kit?






Canon Digital Rebel



The Rebel has gone digital is the tag line on the Canon web site.  This 6.3 MP CMOS sensor D-SLR is the first digital SLR that I purchased.  It is still in my camera bag for race shoots.  On trips, it is relegated to the reserve camera bag.






Canon Digital Rebel T1i



The EOS Rebel T1i was the first of the Rebel line that includes capturing  video.  The sensor is an impressive 15.1 MP.

This is my main camera.  It is always set for recording JPG and RAW.



  • New 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor for faster processing of fine detail and natura; color reproduction, 14-bit A/D conversion for smooth color tones and gradations.
  • Full HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution with HDMI output for veiwing of stills and video.
  • Live View Function for stills (Quick, Live and Face Detection AF modes) and video.
  • 3.0-inch Clear View ACD (920,000 dots/VGA) monitor with anti-reflective and scratch-resistance coatings for improved viewing and smudge protection.
  • Auto Lighting Optimizer for superior highlight-shadow control.
  • Wide range ISO settings 100-3200 (ISO expansion: 6400, 12800).
  • Creative Auto goes a step beyond auto allowing control over frequently-changed settings.
  • Compatable with over 60 Cann EF-EF-S lenses and most EOS System accessories.




Canon EOS 60D



I bought the EOS 60D for shooting races and wildlife. The camera has a better frame rate and larger buffer.  Purchased body only as I was planning to use a new Tamron 18-200mm lens.

Once I get used to it, the camera may become my main camera.  It is always set for recording JPG and RAW.






Canon Point & Shoot


I have owned 5 Canon digital "Point and Shoot" cameras.  Two of them are still useable, but relatated to back-up service - A20 and A1100.  A third is my new S95.  

I always have at least a Point and Shoot camera with me - even on the bicycle.  When looking at these pocket cameras, I had a couple of features that I looked for:

Features, big plusses to me

  • Standard memory cards (CF or SD)
  • AA Batteries
  • Viewfinder
  • Built-in flash

When I started getting big into HDR photography, my needs changed.  I wanted a point and shoot camera that would record in RAW, will do bracketed exposures, and fit in the pocket of my cycling jersey.  I was carrying my Rebel T1i on the bicycle, which was overkill.  Furthermore, to shoot HDR, I had to ride one of the bikes with a luggage rack.

At Nebraska Furniture Mart, the sales clerk showed me the Canon S95.  The camera fills the bill.

Features I had to give up

  • AA Batteries
  • Viewfinder

My new Canon PowerShot S95 has a 10.1 MP sensor, 5x optical zoom and optical image stabilizer.

The Canon Powershot A20 uses a 2.1 MP , 2.7" CCD sensor.

Canon PowerShot A1100 has a 12.1 MP sensor, 4x optical zoom and Optical Image Stabilizer.

The PowerShot A540 was retired because the automatic lense cover sticks.  Basically not worth repairing.

I replaced it with the A590.  I liked this camera but it would forget its set-up date and time.  After 3 times back to Best Buy for repairs, the 4 time resulted in a new camera as I had covered it under a warrancy.
