|Make||Model||When||Resolution||Megapixels||What I think about it|

|Nikon||Coolpix 7900||July 2005||3072x2304||7.1||Nice, small point-and-shoot riding camera. Macro and video modes great. 38-114mm equivalent zoom|
|Olympus||E500 D-SLR||December 2005||3264x2448||8||An amazing camera! Lenses: Zuiko 14-54, 14-45 and 40-150, OM 50mm f1.4, macro/close-up filters. Sold to upgrade.|
|Panasonic||DMC-TZ3A||May 2007||3072x2304 or 3328x1872||7.1||Great point and shoot riding camera due to 28-280mm equivalent optical zoom and IS . Sold to upgrade.|
|Olympus||E3 D-SLR||December 2007||3648x2736||10||Holy shit batman - this camera rocks! In body IS, LiveView w/articulated LCD, splashproof, etc. Lenses: Zuiko 12-60,(review) 70-300, 1.4x Teleconverter|
|Panasonic||DMC-TZ5A||April 2008||3552x2368 or 3712x2088||9.1||Just like the TZ3 above, with larger sensor, more pixels, HD (720p) video w/zoom (poor audio) and double the LCD resolution. 10x Zoom 28-280mm. Nice backup camera.|
|Panasonic||DMC-ZS3||June 2009||3648x2736 or 3968x2232||10||Just like the TZ5 above, with larger sensor, more pixels, AVCHD-Lite 720p video w/decent stereo audio and a 12x zoom from 25-300mm. Dropped hard a couple of times - auto-focus sometimes doesn't work, but still usable as a backup.|
