    What and when was your first serious camera?

    That was certainly what I believed at the time and why I bought it rather than an East European one.

    Hoverflies

    Not easy getting down on my stomach now and even more challenging to get up but it was necessary to take these. hover1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr hoverfly2 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    Water on Mars

    The overnight rain at the weekend gave an opportunity for some water droplet photography. water droplet3 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr water droplet1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr water droplet5 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr water droplet4 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    Flies

    A small selection of flies. The first two are each about 8 stacked shots handheld, the third just 2 stacked shots and the fourth a single shot. fly rose1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr fly1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr fly bubble1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr fly red background1 by Peter...

    Common garden spider with young

    Thank you Alf and les. These spiders are very skittish usually but were luckily sufficiently cooperative to allow a the number of shots I wanted. I had to lie down and sneak up on them.

    Common garden spider with young

    Common garden spider. 90mm macro with Raynox 250 but focussed out to give a better working distance so probably around 1:1. First is about 10 stacked images handheld and the second 6 shots stacked handheld. garden spider1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr garden spider2 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    I think this was what I had in mind, a camera good enough to do 'photography' with. My family had an old box brownie that was used to record family events etc but clearly didn't cut it for 'taking photos seriously'

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    I remember lusting after the Olympus OM1 when it came out but finances dictated sticking with my Chinon.

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    Mine was a Chinon SLR (forget the model) bought from Dixon's in 1974. I had just left school so bought it on the 'never never'. I used it intensively for 16 years until it was stolen one day in Amsterdam.
