Big Bertha's Adventures

Big Bertha & Company

It turns out a bulk of my photos were taken with other cameras—and although the cameras aren’t nearly as good as Big Bertha, they still took great photos.

Here’s a tribute to old cameras and technology!

My first digital camera:
Sony Cybershot DSC-V1, 5.0 Megapixels
I loved this camera… until I dropped it on concrete outside.

My second digital camera:
Sony Cybershot DSC-H2, 6.0 Megapixels
I loved this camera… until the shutter button stopped working.

My 3rd digital camera:
Canon G11, 10 Megapixels
This is my everyday camera and it surpasses the other two in terms of quality.  It’s outdated—there are newer versions but until I drop this one or the shutter button stops working, I’ll keep using it. (Update:  this camera died after an unfortunate horse expedition.  I learned dust is the enemy of cameras….)

The last camera I’ll ever buy:
Big Bertha Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 21.1 Megapixels
Big Bertha is incognito in this photo with a different lens installed:  A 55mm Compact Macro Lens.  I thought I’d use this lens more often but I seem to like the telephoto lens more, despite the weight.

Polaroid Land Camera
Never used it.  Just played with it as a child.  Thought I’d throw it in the blog post for fun.

Newest camera purchased on a whim but justified because it was my 15 year work anniversary.  I’m naming this camera Rockalita Canon.  This is the last camera I will ever need…

  1. Love the focus of the site. I’m also hoping to show more photographs along with other hobby stuff. I’m shooting with a Sony system – def a bit smaller than your equipment 🙂

    Are all the photos here from the canon mark4?

    1. Thank you for visiting my site and taking the time to comment. I had a Sony I loved until I dropped it. (oops!). The camera still took photos but they were a little out of focus. 🙂

      Lately my photos are with the Canon Mark IV. But sometimes my iPhone can work wonders for getting in to small spaces. I think a big part of the game is just having a good eye and knowing how to use the camera (no matter what type). Example: I remember when I took my first photography class, I had the smallest, dinkiest camera among my peers. But it didn’t matter. It’s about technique and perspective. It wasn’t until that class that I realized it.
