The 9 most important Nikon cameras ever


Hey, here I have shot with six of those nine and I still own two of them (D1, V1). And I think the original “F” is missing.

My complete (or not) Nikon list reads like this: Nikon F*, EM, F65*, F-601*, L35AF*, CP950*, D1*, D3100…
(* = still with me)

Don’t buy that Sony a7 camera yet…

…Nikon is rumored to release a new full frame hybrid camera soon!


There is some uproar in the market!!

Quite a nice article by Skovra.

My gear?

Sometimes people ask me: “Hey, you have a lot of stuff. Can you show us all your gear?”
Well, no I can’t. It’s too much to get everything in one shot and still be able to recognize a thing. 😉

Actually, I used to have way more than I own at the moment. I have sold quite a bit.

All the remainers I have organized in typical “sets” or “combos”. And that’s the reason why I still keep so much. I’d like to keep most of my cams and therefore I need to keep many lenses. What use is a cam without a lens?

OK, what I can do, is to present you a list of those “combos”: (In order of frequency of usage.)
