These photos are just gorgeous! What kind of camera do you use?

Thank you so much for the gorgeous photos.

My camera is a humble Kodak digital camera. I fiddled with the ISO settings. Most of the churches in Rome don't allow flash, which would've ruined the photos anyway....and they frowned on tripods, too. So it was a challenge to get the camera stable. I used the timer to avoid any wiggling.
