Update: My current camera is featured on my resources page.
Many people have been asking me what kind of camera I use here and there on this blog. I want to take this as a compliment that my photos are good, so you want to use the same camera. (Or did you mean that they are awful, so you want to avoid using the same camera? 🙂 )
Instead of answering lots of individual questions about my camera, I decided to give one full answer to this matter.
And here are some collages of pictures I personally think are my best, using my equipment. You will see how the camera (with the right lens) and natural light makes a difference.
For the record, I started using the Canon Digital Rebel XTi 10.1MP for this blog from this post (ddeokbokki recipe). Before that I used a Canon PowerShot S45 . It turned out OK sometimes, but I did a lot of work to get more light with an extra lamp.

Using an SLR camera with my lens is definitely my life saver. It reduces the hassles of getting light and saves time. I also get better and more satisfying results.
