Does it really matter what camera I use? Not really. It never has. But it’s still fun to have and collect gear. And people always ask. On that note, have you ever thought about the deeper context of this simple question:
- “Wow – awesome photo. What camera do you use?”
Try that in a restaurant next time:
- “Awesome food – what type of pots and pans do you use?”
Funny thought? I think it’s funny. Anyway, here is some of the photo equipment I use and highly recommend.
It happened in the summer of 2013. After 20 years of being a loyal Nikon customer, I switched to the amazing Fuji X system. The cameras are small & light, look extremely sexy and most importantly produce amazing image quality. Also, the X cameras rely on a bunch of manual dials instead of menus which make them really easy and fun to use.
The Fuji X-T1 is probably one of the most reviewed cameras of 2014. Let me tell you – this is an amazing piece of technology. The electric view finder is superb – almost as good if not better than the viewfinder of a DSLR. Super light, sturdy and it is made for photographers. My absolut favourite.
What if you could have a camera small enough so that you can take it anywhere while delivering outstanding image quality? Well, here is the Fuji X70: APS-C size sensor in a really tiny and sexy package. This is the one camera that is always with me. You can find an in-depth review on this blog.
The Fuji X-E1 does not have all the great features and the sturdy body of the Fuji X-T1 but it looks extremely cool and is even lighter. Image quality is pretty much the same. The looks of the X-E1 are deceiving – people often ask me if it is a film camera..
Before I learned about the Fuji cameras, I was a big on Nikon. A majority of the photographs on this page were taken with the mind-blowing 36MP DSLR. The image quality is out of this world and the camera handles really well. The only issue for me was size & weight:
Believe it or not, a number of photographs on this site were taken with small pocket cameras. I currently use the following beauty:
The P330 is super small and features a nice wide-angle lens (24mm) that extends to the equivalent of 120mm. The 12MP is large enough to produce excellent results
