LOL, no special filter or lens were used, just my Black Berry phone. Soon I hope to have a digital camera that I have waited years for but not yet made in large quantity $$$$$ - its a price issue for me. But it looks like they will in be main stream production in another year or so we should see them. Cannon, Nikon..... all make them now, camera's with a 28 MP or higher is what I am after.
The camera I use is just 22 MP but I rarely have it set that high, for most of the pictures I use in here 8-12 MP will do just fine. Member Maggie uses an inexpensive point and shoot Sony which takes fantastic photos, many have been posted in here. Her moon photos which you have seen make my camera look bad.
currently own a Canon Powershot G7 and it does well for the everyday pictures. My old time favourite camera was a Nikon EM and it was one I loved and cost me a ton of money when I was young. I can remember sometimes that most of my Canadian Tire paychecks went to pay for all the pictures I took, LOL my dad was not impressed with my costly hobby.
Yes the photos posted here are fantastic and perhaps as I find more time, I will once again start to take up the hobby and post more often
