I got started in photography with the Nikon D60. Today I favor small cameras and primes lenses.
- Olympus OM-D EM-5
- Panasonic GX1
- Fujifilm X100 (23mm f/2.0)
- Olympus 12mm f/2.0
- Panasonic 20mm f/1.7
- Panasonic 100-300mm
- Olympus 12-50mm
- Nikon SB-26 flash
- PT-04 wireless flash trigger
- 60x60cm soft box and light stand
- Manfrotto 732CY M-Y tripod with 804RC2 head
The wish list
I don’t see myself buying another camera for a few years, the EM-5 is all I need at the moment. Next (and for the moment, last) on my lens shopping list is the Olympus 75mm f/1.8.
My first cameras
The Nikon D60 was my first DSLR, and the 50mm f/1.8 D was my first prime lens. It was manual focus only on the D60.
My very first camera was a digital compact HP R707. I bought it in summer of 2005 before the start of my one year university exchange course in Vienna. Its LCD screen was so small that I preferred shooting through the tiny viewfinder most of the time. As most compacts in those days, its low light capabilities were terrible and even at ISO 100 there was always some noise in the shadows when viwing the pictures up close 100%. Still, I took some good pictures with it. Its sensor died in 2011.
