Your Camera: DSLR, Point and Shoot or Film?

canon dslr

Personally I have a Canon DSLR that I’ve been using for around 6 months now. I purchased that camera when I realised that I’d like to get more involved with photography, to learn more about how to take really creative, high quality photographs. Prior to that I had Sony point and shoot cameras and used the camera on a Sony Ericsson K800i mobile phone, which was really quite good as a camera. It’s a long time now since I used a film camera but, I know that many professional photographers swear by them, even in this day of digital everything.

What type of camera do you use? Let us know in the comments, we’d love to know how you take your photographs and why you prefer the type of camera you use.
