I’ve been an artist all my life, and using a camera as a tool for art since about 1963. I began using a small format, soundless movie camera to create stop motion animation when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I was given my first still camera about the same time. It was a Polaroid Swinger that captured small black and white images on 20-series roll film [2 1/8″ × 2 7/8" (5.4 × 7.3 cm)]. I bought my first 35mm SLR while in the Air Force back in 1972. It was a Miranda Sensorex with an interchangeable pentaprizm. In the early 80s I moved to a Minolta 7000i and stayed with that until the late 90s when I began using a small, very low quality digital camera from Intel. In spite of the poor images, I was hooked on digital and bought a Fuji FinePix in the early 2000s that had a sensor resolution of about 3.5MP. The Fuji was my primary camera for about 3 or 4 years when I finally made the leap to a dSLR from Konica-Minolta in December of 2005, a model 5D, and a Canon S2IS for back-up. On 02/25/2012 I finally managed to purchase a Canon 60D.
