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 he next change and now I have the camera that I’ve been dreaming for a long time; EOS 7D.
I’m going to change the longer zoom to a better one some day. The shorter zoom is good. I’m happy with that.
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
- 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.
