My camera

Well since I've been posting my photos on this blog, many of you have asked what camera do I use?  I hesitate to provide an answer cause I don't want people to fall into the trap that a better camera will make you a better photographer.  When you see a nice painting do ask the painter what type of paint brush does he or she use? Making a photo isn't all about the camera -- you take into account the subject and the technique you want to apply.

Anyway, below is what I shoot with.  About 95% of the time I shoot with my Nikon D90 with a 35mm prime lens.  I've had this camera for two years and I love it.  It's very easy to use and it takes and makes awesome photos.  I also use the HD video feature as well.  The HD video is only at 720p, but you can make some nice movies.  The other camera I use is my wife's Leica D-Lux 4 -- this is a great camera too.  It's a point and shoot and I actually find it harder to use than the D90.

Take a look a the photos below, both are taken with the same lighting.  Notice the color of the walls are different (the bottom picture represents what the color is supposed to be).  Does anyone know what is causing this?  I think it's probably do to different white balance settings.
