  1. When we travel, we take a Canon 1Ds Mark II with multiple lenses. We also have a Canon powershot we can put in our pockets, and we both have iphones we use for photos.

  2. We actually visited Louisiana, for the first time, this past April. I so fell in love with Louisiana and would have loved to have stayed even longer. We were there for 3 days and tried to see and do as much as we could. So much culture and history. I took tons of photos and I used my daughter’s camera, a Kodak Easy Share, and took some awesome shots. Personally, I’ve been using an HP 735 Photosmart (3.2 MP) 🙁 I’ve been saving for a Minolta or Canon, so for now, I’ll be using my daughter’s camera until I can afford a new one. 🙂

  3. My wife and I love to travel and our work affords us that opportunity. Very generous friends set me up with a Canon 40D. I bought my wife a Canon SD1300IS as she is all about portability and simplicity! Love the APS site and opportunities. thanks so much for hosting this contest.

    All the best!
