I’ve been already here in some older post but there are some updates I thought worth sharing. As a summary: still a Catalan-Finnish guy, still in Finland, still working on software.
I’ll get to the gear in a moment (you gearheads…) but the most significant change has been de development of film. I started developing B&W at home! I borrowed a Paterson tank, ordered some R09 One Shot (the old Rodinal I think) and got to it! All the latest uploads to my Flickr stream in B&W and film were developed and scanned at home.
It’s very satisfying to see the drying developed negative and realize that I didn’t screw it up during the process!
Now to the gear. Gone are all the Nikkor AI/AIs lenses, gone is the FM2 and gone is the FG. Instead what came in (among other stuff) was a rangefinder (what have I done !?!?) thanks to Joaquin (who has also been featured in your site.
The gear is classified by strap actually. I got two DSPTCH straps and a bunch of release buckles. The Nikkors mount the heavy sling, and the others the standard sling. Brilliant stuff! And they’re long, which helps when you’re tall (1.92m, or 6’4″).
– Billingham Hadley Small: big enough to carry… whatever I want, up to the D800 and two lenses
– Lowepro Sport AW 200: I can fit a big camera and two lenses or a couple of the smaller ones, and still have plenty of space for important stuff (see below).
The Nikkor stuff (Heavy strap):
– D800 + 50mm f/1.8 G: can’t say enough how much I like it
– F4s + Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 Nokton. With a K-focusing screen the F4 has truly become the ultimate film beast
– FM3a: does everything the FE2 and FM2 do, and more.
– Zooms: 24-120mm f/4 VR (all round); Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 (gift from my father!)
– Primes: (besides the aforementioned) 60mm f/2.8 Micro; 85mm f/1.8 AFD, 35mm f/2 AFD
The other stuff (standard strap):
– Voigtlander Bessa R2A + Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 Nokton
– Fuji X-E2 + 35mm f/1.4
– Fuji X20
What I do carry more often than a bunch of cameras because I have an awesome 1 year and 4 months old daughter:
– Wet wipes
– A bottle of water
– Change of clothes
– A camera, maybe
This section is truly awesome!
And you can find my pictures in my Flickr stream, and I haven’t yet found a style of my own:
