IIRC in 2001 I was using the Nikon 8008s and a complement of Nikkor lenses.
I really enjoyed shooting with it. Now when I load it up and fire the shutter which
sounds like a cannon going off I wonder what it was that I liked then. But I still have
some good representative shot from that era.

Nikon F100 closely followed by an F5. I remember a 20-35 f2.8 and a 35-70 f2.8 also. I guess I hadn't discovered the simplicity of primes at this point, that would have been 2003 with a Leica M6 and 35mm f2 ASPH...

In 2001 I was in Kosovo working for the OSCE - I bought a Canon EOS 3000n with a dreadful 28-80/3.5-5.6 II lens from a PX store and that started my interest in photography.

Dear Godfrey,

Then again, I didn't say that. I just said that they may not be as significant as some people seem to think.

Cheers,

R.

Thanks for the link to a very informative article.

I was shooting an M6 in 2001. Later in the decade I got away from rangefinders. Now I'm back.

I know where one is...in its box...for $40. Is 127 available?

Back in 2001 I shot a Minolta Dynax 7000 with 35-70mm AF zoom lens.
Got me some very decent pictures from that too, even though it was plastic-fantastic all the way

Around that time I bought a Minolta 404si and kit lens. I took it on holiday and shot my first and last roll of Kodachrome. It was a plastic fantastic beast with noisy AF, but looking at those chromes today you can see it had an excellent meter and the kit lens wasn't half bad.

Not long after I bought a digital Minolta camera, then a Nikon D70, and so began my disinterest in photography.

Roger,

It is understandable for a European to have that opinion.

2001 forever changed our country and it is indeed significant to every American.

I think Godfrey did a good job of summing it up for those in need of a short hand explanation.

Now back to cameras!

Nikon CP950, Olympus OM1n with a 21mm f/2, and a Mamiya 645 with the 110mm.

Mostly the CoolPix though. (It's still around, and it works!)

It wasn't until the end of 2002 that I got my first digital camera, the Canon S45. Prior to that, it was the family Nikon L35AD 35mm f2.8 film camera.

In the late 90's I was able to play with a few of the digital cameras of that time, like the Sony Mavica which took floppy discs, but I never bought one, thank goodness.

I was using a pair of Olympus OM-4T bodies while working as a contract news photographer for a small Florida weekly. The following year I sold my Oly gear (still miss the metering system of the OM-4 cameras) and shifted to Nikon F100 bodies for the autofocus capabilty.

We had one of the Mavica floppy disk cameras.

Dad worked real estate and used it often.

A few years later I inherited it and loved using it.

I still have 2 of them and a hoard of disks.

A Nikon F301 with Tokina 28-70mm zoom lens. Vivitar Series-1 70-210 mm Tele and Nikkor 50mm f1.4 for low light conditions.

This was all I needed for many years shooting slides only.

My first digital was the Nikon Coolpix 5000. I was shooting film since 1974, when I got my first camera.

I had to really think about this. Mostly because the memory isn't what it used to be

In 2001, I was all film all the time. Primary shooter was a Nikon FE-2 with motor drive. Zooms fell way short of my standards, but I used them because of budget. I had a mix of Tamron and Nikkor zooms and primes. My "best" lens for Nikon at that time was my 105/2.5 Nikkor.

I also used rangefinders in 2001. Mostly because the lenses blew me away. My Hi-Matic-E truly surprised me when I saw the results. My Canon QL-17 was nice too, but I think the Hi-Matic had a better lens. I also had a Leica IIIa and Canon 50/1.8, but I seem to have preferred using the "automatic" cameras then.

I had other cameras then too. I've always had a "collection" so there were others in the mix during 2001. So many I can't recall them all. But no digital yet. First digital came along around 2004/5 with a P+S.
