You might know from my blog that I use to be a Nikon shooter. I have also shot with Canon and Sony cameras and lenses. As well as Minolta for some of the analogue stuff I have done. Having thought long and hard about not only the most suitable gear but also my path in … Continue reading The Move To Fuji
I am not going to go into much detail about this sharp little lens because, unlike the Sigma, there is tons of info about this one. It is after all one of the 50mm lenses that most are familiar with if you use Nikon. Only the G version, the more recent one, is ahead of … Continue reading Six Day Prime Lens Challenge – Day 3 – Nikon 50mm 1.8 AF D on APSC camera

The most cameras and lenses I ever had at any one time? Not sure. I guess 4 cameras and 4 or 5 lenses. That might … Continue reading What Photo Gear Do I need?
I started out in 35mm film photography simply because there wasn't any digital available back in the 90's but I was just having fun. When I got really interested in shooting again a few year ago, I bought a couple of DSLRs (and then a mirrorless camera). It didn't even really dawn on me to … Continue reading A New Old Camera – My Minolta X700
I was going to title this, ''photography and consumerism'' but I think ''versus'' is far more apt. This is a touchy subject for me. It honestly makes my blood boil a bit but I will try to remain calm as I write this... You might learn a little bit about cameras in the process. Those … Continue reading Photography vs Consumerism
