i use a kodak easyshare c1450 with a 1 gigbyte impact card it works good and have no problems with it i would like to get a better camera and sometime i see people with nikon's and canons and have seen the pictures that they have taken and am a bit jealous but i'm happy with what i've got for now maybe down the road i'll get a better camera
Hmm. Back then I was using a Nikon D300 with a D80 as back up. Now I'm using a Nikon D7100 and a D5200 as a back up camera. Lenses are Nikon 17-55mm f2.8, Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR, Nikon 80-400mm VR, Tokina 11-16mm f2.8. Big story is the amount of flash I now have, something like x8 Nikon SB-28 flash, x8 White Lightning X3200 monolights with battery packs, and x2 Nikon SB-900. For the past two years I've really gotten back into film cameras, but only those made between 1900 and 1955. I have a Rolleiflex MX (1951) that I dearly love to shoot, and a Leica IIIc (1942) with Leica Elmar lenses 35/50/90mm I use regularly as well. I've also been shooting early (1900-1930) Kodak Brownies a lot lately too.
Not sure if too much has changed other than my rr shoots have become really rare... for those i sold the 28-135IS and replaced it with the 24-105IS. It's a bit sharper, clearer and the IS is a bit improved. Still using the 50d.
If you are looking to upgrade out of the Rebel series, the 70D would be a great upgrade. You don't say what lens you have, but for trains, the newer 28-135 kit lens is also pretty good. As with everything with camera gear, it all depends on what you want to spend
I can't believe I didn't see this thread a year ago!
I have a 5d2, 5d3, 7d, and a 1dIV. For trains I mainly use the 7D with a sigma 18-250, which I keep in the car almost at all times, and the 5D3 and a big zoom, (used to be the 100-400, but now I use the Tamron 150-600) for close up shots.
Have a serious discussion with yourself about the type of photography you do or would like to do. For example, I have spent a small fortune on cameras and lenses for photographing birds. I could have gotten by with much cheaper and a lot less equipment if I were only going to photograph trains, landscapes, and my family.
