Default Cameras - what do you all use?

I have seen some gorgeous hedgie photos on this site, and I was wondering, what cameras do you all use/prefer?

I dropped my Nikon D70 yesterday and now the old fart isn't recognizing that the flash is up. So it's only outdoor photos until I either fix the D70 or purchase a new camera.

I love DSLR's, but I know some people get fantastic results from those little handy camera

Feel free to post hedgie pictures for examples of camera use!

Umm, I use my cell phone. My digital camera has grown legs and disappeared. I need to get a new one so I can get some decent pictures.

Mostly my DSLR (Olympus E-510) but I also use a simple compact camera (Canon Ixus 750). It's an older one but works great, and I don't even think you always see much difference between the cameras because the quality is so good. Of course there's always some difference especially when it comes to DOF etc but I'm always surprised with how good a compact can be.

I guess at this point I will either replace the body of my D70 (it's cheaper than the cost of repair for some reason) or I will get a small handy Canon

My digital camera is an Olympus SP-590UZ. It's a few years old and was needing repair for the last year; it finally got fixed about a month ago but I still haven't even bothered to use it. All the photos I take, including everything on my website, are with my iPhone. At some point I'll actually use the Olympus, probably just for comparison, but my iPhone takes such gorgeous photos that I haven't felt the need.

I Need a new camera too!
My older one is a Nikon coolpix S220 and takes some really nice pics when the flash is on, but I hate to turn on flash with my gedgies.... with flash off it only takes mediocre pics...
It was cheap and does its duty for me. :P

I use flash all the time with my hedgehogs, they don't care. At most they flinch the first few times, then they get used to it. All the baby photos are taken with flash, they don't come out well otherwise.

I just got a Nikon D5100 for Christmas. Sadly, I never had the opportunity to test it on hedgehogs. My old Olympus E300 had so much trouble focusing if it wasn't full light and sun and Litchi hated the sounds of the camera focussing and the 10 000 flahs it would make

I have a NIKON D3100 & I love it but I haven't taken many photos of my hedgehog yet, she's a shy thing and I don't want to push her.

I'm amazed with camera phones these days, iPhone's take beautiful shots, my husbands galaxy nexus camera is amazing, he's taken some super cute pictures of our hedgehog.
