I just bought disposable cameras. Son is going on a school trip, no electronics allowed, disposable cameras recommended. I did not find these at Target, had to buy on Amazon. should be interesting to see if I can find a place that can develop the pictures. Use by 2020.

My teenaged heart was stuck on Nikons. But my wife liked Canons, so we were fully Canonized. I still have Dad's F2S and his Nikkor glass..... I can't bear to part with them. (I DID pull the batteries).

Pentax ever since my first, a Honeywell Pentax (no built-in meter). Cost me $170 back in 1971, which was a big chunk of what I had in my little savings account. I really wanted the Spotmatic, but it was $210. Exposures, being guesstimates, were pretty wonky until I bought a Luna Pro a few years later.

My favorite now is my K3-II.

iPhone for sure. Everything since the 6S has been able to capture fireworks and other low light. And the convenience is unbeatable.

Ackk..for what? I tried to press several buttons...damn!

The Sony Rx100 series is a brilliant line (and others) and build quality is killer..very well thought out cameras with a killer lens. You really don't need much more for quite a range of subjects..SO Sony!

But

I have Nikon Lenses so Im partial to the Nikon digital line..The D7XXX's line is great. the D6oo-610's are great and my D300 is still rolling, never an issue and i still love the look of it's images and print 20x24 without a thought...SO NIkon!!

For portraits in the studio im still using a Hasselblad 500cm that has been with me since 1984. SO Hasselbldgh!!

I have no interest in heavy SLRs, so Canon and Nikon are out. Sony, Panasonic, Olympus and Fuji (not in the poll) rule the roost in smaller format cameras. Sony would be on top if not for their horrendous UI.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Have old Nikons, use Lumix for a big camera and a p/s, but still have many film cameras.

For DSLRs, I like how Pentax doesn't choke back on features for their mid-range cameras. For P&S, I like the lenses and UI on the Lumix line.

When I was debating which digital SLR to get (like 10 years ago), it was between Nikon and Canon. We had a Nikon film SLR that we liked, and eventually went with Nikon. Both our DSLRs and a couple of point/shoots we have are Nikon. But I take the overwhelming number of pics on my iPhone. It's literally everywhere I go. So unless I'm actually planning on taking the DSLR somewhere, and feel like lugging it with me, most of my pics are on the iPhone.

Don't have a favorite.

I primarily use my Nikons for taking photographs and iphone for taking pictures.
They are what I have for the reasons that I have them.

Yeah, stellar quality. They're competing for Leica users with their X series lenses.

My thoughts exactly! thumbs up

99.9% of my shots are with an iPhone 6S+.

As far as brand, that seems to be too generic as each brand has several models that may be better suited for different purposes.

I'm happy with my Sony DSLR for serious stuff, but as we all seem to agree an iPhone is fine for most things.
