    Thanks man, thanks for the feedback!

    Cheers about the photos, too! I try to make it enjoyable for you guys to read and put in some nice pictures to look at as well, I do take a fair bit of time with the photography. I only use my phone camera, which is eight megapixels. I could use my Canon 350D, but I feel it's a little overkill for forum pictures. I di set up my little 'stage' for the photos, then once I have enough that I like, edit them, then upload them.

    I also pay a lot of attention to where I place the pictures in relationship to each paragraph. And if you've noticed, I write each section from the rear to the front.

    You probably didn't care about that much, but oh well, hahaa. If you want to hear more about my photography or anything, PM! (:

    Now thats overkill!! Haha.

    I use a Sony HDR-CX110 camcorder. You can take photos obviously, but it only has 3.1 megapixels. But it has a vario tessar lense, so when you get up close, its actually quite good.
    The zoom on it is crazy.

    I've got a couple of cheaper Nikon cz's, which I use for fishing, and out and about, but I figure that I want to have the most detailed pic's of internals that I can, so why not use my good DSLR!!

    Also, it helps give client's a decent example of paint job's, customisations etc.

    Admittedly, I do put it back in the camera bag after each group of photo's. I'd had to drop a sledgy on it or something... haha

    I dont have a digital camera, only a Mamiya 645D medium format camera, now that is overkill for any basic photos! Costs about $3.50 per slide to have it developed and much much more if you wanted a print or a scan.

    It's not so much what quality camera you use, as how you use it. To a certain extent, of coarse. I grew up with two wedding photographer parents. I love capturing things and showing people what I see when I look at it.

    You may have seen some of my photos on Facebook, Clunk? They were all with the Canon.

    @Servulus - yep, hands down, you've got us all covered mate. The perks of an interesting life mate!!

    @Mozart - to a degree, equipment isn't the most important part, for sure. I'm only a beginner at all this photography stuff, but any SLR's gotta be better than a compact for most things, 95% of the time.
    Some of your pic's on FB are pretty damn awesome!!

    Thanks man. (:

    Yeah, I use the SLR for most things, but I just don't need that quality when I'm going to upload them smaller anyway, for the forum. Easier to upload this way. Don't get me wrong, I normally wouldn't touch a phone for photos, but.. Well, look at the pictures. They're pretty damn nice for a phone, hahaa.

    off topic but ... lulz.

    All my photos are taken with a very old nikon coolpix 4100. And they mostly turnout ok.

    As has been said, the tools are not the most important thing, but knowing how to use what you have is

    Oh and much AR posts, just as bad as a swarmfire or RF20.

    Gooni.

    Yeah man, so long as you know what you're doing with it, you'll be good.

    To a certain extent, as mentioned above. If a teenager races an R35 against a race car driver in a beat up Datsun, who'll win..? Lol.

    Yeah, enough AR springs in there to make a spring loaded Chopper, I think! (;

    Gooni - there's alot of AR's, but they come out really easy, so not an issue.

    Cheers,
