Which Camera do I use to I take my pictures? - A reader emailed me to ask which camera I use to take the pictures on Becks & Posh. Until now I have been using a Casio Exilm EX-Z3 which is about 18 months old (there are newer models available now). It's a tiny camera with 3.2 mega pixels and 3x optical zoom. The casio's macro mode works very well. I am very excited, however, as our new camera, a digital SLR, Canon 20D has been shipped and should arrive later this week.

Here I am in action with the Casio, taking the cabbage pictures in the following post...
