What I Use

'What I use' was about more than cameras. Several members told us about their own introductions to, and motivations for entering, the world of photography. Then about the cameras they began with and how and why they moved on to better kit, relating it to the type of photography they were interested in or became involved with. But we also heard about accessories, especially tripods, and there was a fairly detailed exploration into the science of camera bags.
