Not sure if I've already responded to this thread. But

Previously (within the past 30 days)

I had an S10.

Now I Have a Motorola G 5G 2022. As an interim between flag ship phones because I busted my S10. This phone is honestly not too bad at taking pics. The Luxor lamp pics and the Sylvania HPS grow light bulb pics came out good.

After this (this phone will become a spare/work phone) I will get either an LG V60, a Sony Xperia 5 IV, or a Sony Xperia 1 IV.

I've been collecting light bulbs since I was 2 years old and I've been collecting them ever since.

As of now, I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35, as well as occasionally an iPhone camera, but not often.

I use a Panasonic DC-FZ80 and occasionally my phone camera (Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G) when I don't have my camera with me.

I've just bought a 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens for my Canon EOS 4000D DSLR camera.  8)
Over the next few days I'm going to experiment on how to get the best results, I've also got ND1000 filters coming so that I can get lit shots of arc tubes. :wndr:
Wish me luck... At least with digital photography you know right away that you've screwed up.  :lol:

More spending on my camera outfit:  :bulbman:
A set of four close up filters for the 60mm macro lens (+1/+2/+4/+10) and a lens hood.  8)
This brings my spending on the camera up tp £870.43.!  :poof:
Now I just hope that I can match up to it.  :wndr:

My father had one of those bags, which is why I recommended it.

I use a JVC Eviro camcorder for closeup shots at home, and a GoPro for shots that are further away. The JVC does not shoot higher than something like 720i (for video) and SD for pictures. I use the GoPro only for faraway shots because it does not have a focusable lens. The only reason I use it at all is because it takes higher quality pictures.

When I'm out and about, I use a Verve Snap flip phone. It works well enough.
