Default Searching by Camera

Hi there,

I'm trying to search for photos taken using specific cameras but cannot find the appropriate section. Can anybody help?

Thanks,
Ian

Ha!!!

I think that's what you could call an incredible blunder on my part!

Thank you Ma'am, please accept my most gracious apologies! :)

Searching by camera -and lens as well- is one of the biggest problem in TE. Just look at the equipment list to have an idea of what I'm talking about: if you have a Canon EOS 350D / Rebel XT with the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens you have more than 25 different names in the list for the camera and more than 30 different names for the lens (I gave up before the end of the list)!

What could or shoul be done:

- searching for the official and complete name for each equipment (not easy since the name often change from one country to another) and adding it to the list. Delete all the other names and update database tables.

- Not allow people to create new name of equipment. Add a button "ask creation of a new equipment" that would open a formular to email the "equipment moderators" that would create it if necessary.

OK, it's not easy and would be a lot of work, but to me it's the only way to have accurate equipment search...

What do you think about it?
