The equipment we use:

Early DayTrails.com digital photographs were shot using a ViviCam 3100. While the consistency of image quality and color were never good, this little camera kept us company on many a trip. The small image size (resolution) and lack of a LCD viewer made it very economical on both compact flash RAM and our rechargeable batteries. Did I mention that it didn’t cost very much either?

Current DayTrails.com digital photographs are shot with a Kodak DC290. We really can’t say enough good things about this camera. It is a workhorse! Over 5000 pictures and the original set of rechargeable batteries are still as full of life as the day it arrived. The color that the DC290 captures is vivid and bright. With the addition of the optional lens adapter kit and a +7 close-up lens we were able to capture the awesome closeup-ups you see in many of our flower photographs. There are newer cameras with more bells and whistles (the DC290 has it’s share), higher resolution and cost three times as much but, we have not yet held one in our hands that stands equal with the DC290!
