In the beginning of the 80’s. Old Canon AT-1.

And this self portrait is from 2009.


When the film was really film I used to have this kind of set. I have them still in good working condition. I used to make the black and white pictures myself. It was so slow compared to today with digital devices. And I can print A4 size pictures at home.

Equipment in the picture above:

  • Canon AE-1 (in the beginning AT-1)
  • Canon FD 50 mm f/1.8 S.C.
  • Canon FD 28 mm f/2.8
  • Tamron zoom 85-210 mm f/4.5
  • Popular SC-7 flash


My first digital camera was HP Photosmart R818, 5 megapixels. I never got used to look the target from the back of the camera.

Then I returned back to Canon, PowerShot A630, 8 megapixels. I didn’t like the viewfinder which is not using the lens.

And so the next step was a real SLR camera, Canon EOS 450D.

Which I switched to EOS 500D in 2009.

Summer 2012 was the next change and now I have the camera that I’ve been dreaming for a long time; EOS 7D.

Equiment that I have now:

  • Canon EOS 7D
  • Canon zoom EF-S 17-55 mm f/2.8 IS 
  • Canon zoom EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS
  • Sigma 125 mm f/2.8 DG Macro HSM OS
  • Canon Speedlite 430EX II flash

I have also a slide/film scanner and I have scanned all old slides and black and white negatives with that. Boring stuff to scan thousands of pictures.
