Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x. Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.
Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.
Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.
Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I'd say the 24MP on my D7100 is enough. That's plenty for cropping if necessary. Any more pixels than that would be useless unless you're using the best of lenses that have that much resolving power. Bigger files will take forever to upload to Adorama for printing. Sometimes I shoot at 13MP setting on D7100 if I know I'm not going to crop-it's good enough.
Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.
D7100, red D5300, IR converted D300, D40, D70s, Olympus C-5060 P&S from 2003, and a few 35mm film bodies
