What camera(s) do you use?

I have owned a Panasonic Lumix FH25 for a few years and love its compactness, point and shoot and general ease of use. Yesterday I coughed up some decent coin and bought a Lumix FZ1000 for $1200 Australian $s. The clarity of the 4k video is crazy good, the photos straight from the camera are fantastic. Only downer is the weight of thing at just over 830 grams. I weighed it against the Sony a6000 and what sold me on the Lumix were 4k video, single lens and 12fps speed.

What camera(s) do you guys own/have owned or wish to own?

    Weak iPhone 5. My wife has something respectable in the 400 dollar range. I'll track it down and update my post here in a few.

    I use a Canon 60D (big), Olympus E-PL3 (medium), and a Canon S90 (small). What I carry depends on what I'm shooting and where I'm going.

    I would like to get a full frame camera but would rather spend the money on lenses.

    I keep coming with excuses to get something new but my Canon 40D is still going strong and producing great results.

    I loved my 40D and used that for a long time. I got the 60D because I wanted to shoot videos as well, and I got a really good deal on it. I sold the 40D for the same price I bought my 60D for, so it was pretty much a free upgrade.

    Love my Nikon D7000. Currently in the market for some Tamron 2.8's.

    The latter half of my portfolio is on the d7000, the earlier half is on a d5100.

    @pevangel and @cyberguypr - the 40D looks great too

    I had a lesser Panasonic but returned it. The 60x zoom hunted too much and had difficulties focusing when extended. I am looking to buy the one you purchased, Essendon.

    I just upgraded my Nikon D3200 at Christmas to a D7100 and love it. Paired it with Tamron 17-50mm F.28 VC, Nikon 50mm and Nikon 35mm prime lens. Also have Panasonic FH-25 p&s that carry in the bag as well for backup.

    I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and a Canon EOS M. I used to have a Nikon but I wanted to shoot video and the Canons have better features for that. You also have to pick a manufacturer to share glass. I love the EOS M! It's as small as a point and shoot but has the versatility of a real DSLR. I like to use it with a 50 mm prime lens.

    Recently treated myself to a Sony Alpha A5100 as I wanted something a little smaller than my current Sony a200 while maintaining the features of an SLR.
    This week I have achieved unprecedented levels of unverifiable productivity

    It's primarily been my iPhone because that is the camera I always have on hand since it's my phone. I have been researching something that has an optical zoom because there are times where I wish I had an optical zoom like when my son had swim classes, tee-ball practice, etc where I cannot get good shots from a distance.

    Thanks. I need to get out and shoot, but school has been keeping me busy!

    I'm jelly. I'm still using a 5D mk I. That I bought when the 5DIII came out so the prices dropped considerably to ~$750 at the time.

    Looking to pick up a 17-40L at some point, as I had to sell my Sigma 10-20 when I upgraded and miss having an ultrawide, but can't really afford to blow $600 on something I don't use much.

    Otherwise, have a 50/1.4 and Tamron 28-75/2.8.

    Currently sporting a Canon Rebel T2i. Waiting for the new Canon 5D Mark IV to bow so I can switch to full-frame. My wife and I are so sick and tired of unreliable (although great) photographers when trying to get pictures of our girls so I figure I'll do it myself. I have a background in art and graphic design when I was younger and have absolute confidence in becoming good in the art of photography as well.

    I bought Sony FDR-AX100 last year to shoot 4K videos of my little son growing up. I was amazed by the demo stand in Best Buy as well as other people videos on youtube. So far, I'm happy with the quality even though I haven't bought 4K TV yet, well at least I know that my videos won't look outdated in the next 5-10 years.
    As for the camera, I have an old entry level Canon 1000D (Rebel XS). Lately been looking at Nikon D750 but not sure if it even worth it..

    I am looking forward to the 5DIV as well. Although, I probably won't buy one until late 2016. I hope the rumors of 50+ megapixels are true, as I do a lot of landscapes and like to print very big.
