If anyone was wondering what gear I shoot with, no problem.
NIkon F4 (1988-1994)
I use this for all my 35mm shots. It autofocuses most of my lenses, and has a damn fast motor drive (4 FPS). More Importantly, It's built well and is damn near indestructible. Buy one used on eBay.
NIkon D40x (2006-Today)
It's a great camera. Very customizable, shoots over 10 megapixels, and very cheep. Shoots with all nikon lenses (No metering or autofocus on older lenses. Oh well) The built in meter is fantastic if your using the lens that ships with it, or any other new nikon lens. I don't personally own one of these, but every digital shot on my website was shot with a D40x.
You can get this camera cheap, it comes with a decent lens, and my favorite camera reviewer Ken Rockwell loves the hell out of this thing.
This is what I use to shoot my Medium Format shots. RB Stands for "Rotating Back". This exists so you can take your pictures in landscape or portrait without moving the bulky body. Did I say it was bulky?
It's massive. Luckily, it takes amazingly sharp images, and it's decently easy to operate.
It shoots 220 and 120.
You can get this on eBay, but I wouldn't recommend it. It's overly expensive and bulky.
If you want to shoot Medium Format get a Yashica-D . They aren't too expensive and take more interesting pictures than the RB67.
Far more important that the camera, the lens is what makes your images what they are. I only own three lenses to myself.
Nikkor 50mm f/2.8 Macro. (Auto-Indexing, manual focus, broken aperture stuck at f/2.8)
Nikkor 28-70mm f/3.5 (Auto-Indexing, auto focus on F4)
Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 (Auto-Indexing, Auto focus on F4) Personal Favorite.
The type of film you shoot with is very important to what you can shoot. I tend to lean towards slower film such as Velvia 50, but I'll also shoot up to 400 and sometimes 1600 for fun.
This stuff is great. Simply, I get better colors and resolution than with any digital camera I have ever shot with. It's very picky about exposure, so be careful and take your time! They make this film avlable for all types. Including 35mm, 120 and 220.
It's not the cheapest film in the world, but buy it on ebay and get it expired. Its 10 times cheaper and most of the time no different.
It takes fantastic pictures. (This image is unedited, direct from the scanner. Click the image for a full resolution.)

I really like this film just because its so easy to get processed quickly.
This film is useful because it uses the Color Process to make black and white images. Meaning, I can take it to any CVS, Sam's club, Costco and get it processed, probably in an hour.
When I shoot video, I only use one camera. It's my prized possession.
All I can say is that I love this camera.
It doesn't shoot HD, and it doesn't have super fancy features. It's decently small, shoots 24p, and does everything I need a pro-sumer camera to do.
(This film was shot on the DVX100b.)
For most of my photo editing, I use Apple Aperture and a little bit of Adobe Photoshop. I really recommend Aperture. It's quick, easy and very powerful.
