Which camera are you using?

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, I don’t think the camera makes the photos. It’s the person behind it. But gear is still fun and I don’t know any photographer who does not drool over new camera bodies, lenses and other accessories. And let’s face it – the more comfortable you are with your equipment, the more you can focus on the important stuff.


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. Based on my current needs, I cycle through 2-3 different Fuji models over time.

Fuji X70

When it comes to sport and other activities, I heavily rely on my all-time favorite Go Pro: This camera is the one piece of gear that is always with me and that has been getting the highest use since 2014. Most of the photos on my Insta channel are taken with one of the GoPro models. As a runner and cyclist, I was looking for a waterproof option to capture the beauty around me while working out. The earlier releases were ok and still somewhat bulky, but GoPro has done some amazing things in recent years. Picture quality for both photo and video is at a very high level. You just have to learn how to work around the restrictions of having an ultra-wide sense.

Post Processing

And just to top things off – I have been using Adobe Lightroom for a very long time. It works well and the rate of innovation is pretty cool. No complaints.
