  • Woodland Weekend

    Nikon D700 + Nikkor AF 35mm f2D. A walk through the local forest in the early morning. It was still a bit chilly (8 degrees celsius). Temperatures in the afternoon reached almost 18 degrees though. It was a nice 1.5h walk. We spent some time at a small creek while I was getting get used […]

  • Spring is (almost) here

    I am still mesmerized about the fact that the Nikon D700 is after all these years such a great camera and delivers absolutely incredible results. More than ever do I believe that no one needs the latest and greatest. This 12MP monster (yes it is a heavy beast) is more than sufficient. My iPhone has […]

  • I sold all my Fuji camera gear

    A few weeks back I sold my whole camera equipment. A Fuji X-E4, a Fuji X-M1 and all the lenses for the two cameras: the 56mm f1.2, the 23mm f2 and the 18-55mm. Why? Because I realized how slow the system was after picking up my old Nikon D90 at my mum’s place. Yes – […]
