My name is Rick. I’m an amateur photographer, tech and gadget lover and I have started this blog to share my passion with others.
I write about cameras, lenses and accessories. I only write about products I’ve used for some time and when I feel I know enough about the products. My blogs are about my experiences in day to day use. Therefore you will not find any laboratory tests or pictures of sharpness-charts on my site (there are enough sites on the internet that do those tests, and do them very well).
Photography has been my hobby for about 20 years. In the first years I used a simple Minolta bridgecamera with 3.2 MP and 10x zoom. Had a lot of fun with this versatile camera. After some time I was looking to upgrade, and bought my first DSLR. In 2005 I bought a Nikon D50, one of the first affordable DSLR camera.
My main gear
Over the years I’ve been buying and selling a lot of camera’s and lenses as I love to try new things and love the process of reading reviews and then trying stuff for myself. I’ve owned a lot of Nikon, Sony, Canon and other cameras. At the moment my main camera is a Sony A7R3. I still hope to own a Leica one day, just because they look and feel so damn good!
Bag wise I use a Tenba (Cooper) shoulderbag and a Shimoda Explore 30 when I need all my gear with me. And there are many good tripod brands out there, but I like Benro or Sunwayfoto the best.
