I am a dedicated Canon user, even more so since photography became a more serious hobby. Even pre-SLR cameras were Canons, however it was only in 2008 that photography turned into a serious hobby with the purchase of my first SLR camera.
2006 - 2008 Canon PowerShot S610
2008 - 2010 Canon EOS 400D
2010 - 2012 Canon EOS 5D MK II
My editing started with the free included Digital Photo Professional (DPP), moving eventually to Lightroom 4, primarily as I prefer the finer controls of Adobe's RAW converter over DPP.
