My Gear

I will keep this aspect of my blog rather short, though it is unfortunately subject to frequent changes as I tend to buy and sell stuff (and re-buy the same…) quite often.

I will try to keep this page up to date, for those interested.

My main cameras for the moment are:

A Leica IIIa called Oskar (why? – Because!) with a wonderful Summitar 50mm f:2.0, a beautifully clean Jupiter 8 50mm f:2.0 and a very sharp Industar 50 50mm f:3.5

Oscar will be back from the doctor’s in a few days (as of march 23 2017) where he got a complete CLA. Hopefully he will be OK for the next 80 years now!

Olympus XA2 – always in my pocket. My daily companion.

And let’s not forget those instant goodies!

I quite like my Polaroid Impulse, though I hate the cost of Impossible film… or the polaroid-impulse-afimpossible cost of instant film, as you like. Fuji Instax had been the alternative but I think they don’t know where to go with their stuff. Nice enough film, good colors but too small (Mini). The new square option comes with a f…ugly camera that’s more printer than camera. And then the cameras with their awful plastic lenses are crap! There’s alternatives from other sources such as Mint but the are expensive!

And of course my iPhone SE – just too convenient as I have it always with me, even on the rare occasions when I leave the XA2 at home… or the occasions when I need color photographs or have to send them on quickly.
