Digital Photography

Richard – I have been an avid photographer for 35 years. My first camera was a Mamiya 35mm SLR (analog) with only one lens. I then moved on to Canon equipment, starting with the A1 (analog), which I used for a very long time. I currently shoot with a Canon 7D (digital), and couldn’t be more satisfied. Canon has been with me through thick and thin, through multiple mishaps and repairs, literally travelling the entire globe. When I look back at my collection of photos, and the incredible creativity now accessible in the digital realm, I wish I had my first twenty-five years of photography to do over, but now digitally.
