This is a list of the cameras I have owned. Newest on top.

Canon EOS 80D

If only this had 4K video, it would be a great camera.

DJI Mavic Pro

Crap still images, so I always use the 4 Pro instead, despite its bulk and weight.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro

Great drone, terrible software.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

Nice camera, but with some shortcomings. Useless autofocus for video and noisy shadows.

 

DJI Phantom 3 (drone)

I first bought the Standard, drowned it, then bought and totally crashed a 4K, then bought another 4K that lost contact over the ocean and never returned home. Bought yet another 4K that is still alive, but the unstable compass on this one makes it rather useless. Really great photography tool. Not the best camera, but good enough for most needs, and the ability to shoot both stills and video from almost any vantage point is a amazing. DJI deliver impressive hardware, buggy  nag-/software and abysmal support.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

Despite its many shortcomings, the FZ1000 has so far been my favourite camera. As it is so versatile as a complete package, it also means that it gets used a lot.

Canon PowerShot G7 X

I never really started vlogging, so this was sold after very little use. Fair image quality. Too large (heavy) to be pocketable. Lacked mic input. I usually just grabbed the FZ1000 anyways, so the G7 X just came short.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver

A camera that has seen very little use. It is too much of a specialty item. POV videos are boring.

Canon PowerShot S110

A favorite. Fairly good image quality (noticeably better than a smartphone), and a pocketable size. Great for travel and outdoors. Its biggest flaw was the fixed screen.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

A superzoom at 24-1200. Great for hiking. Not the best image quality with its small sensor. Images at the long end mostly unusable. But it got me hooked on the versatility of the ‘all in one’ camera.

Canon Powershot G12

Great body/controls, but only 720p video. Heavy.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

May be one of the game changing cameras in history, paving the way for video into the realm of photography. I bought this after selling the 7D.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

I found the Mark III to be somewhat of a disappointment. It was only marginally better than the Mark II, at more than twice the price. I soon sold it, as I didn’t find it worth the investment.

Canon EOS 7D

Great camera, from when Canon was great. It was the best choice for an all round DSLR at the time, with far better autofocus and fps than the 5D Mark II. I should have kept this and not bought the 5D Mark III (only bought the 5D Mark II).

Canon EOS 450D

My first DSLR, and the camera that started my semi photography career. Soon got replaced by the 7D.

Canon G10

The G10 was a great G camera. High resolution, nice controls and swivel screen. Unfortunately also low resolution video.

Canon EOS 300D

Bought by employer. I did not know enough about photography at the time to make use of this camera.

Fujifilm Finepix 4700

Bought by employer. Cool look. OK outdoors, barely usable indoors.

Canon Ixus L1

Great pocket camera with APS film.

 

Kodak Disc 4000

My first camera. Compact, but not that great images as the negatives were so small.
