Tord S Eriksson's previous gear

FujiFilm FinePix S9000 Zoom (FinePix S9500)
Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600
Konica KD-500 Zoom
Nice, if you get the white-balance right, and have lots of light! Often a pain in the neck. Washed-out colours. The second owner still uses it!
A Konica KD-500, with some new thrills, but more noise and not nearly as pleasing colours! Lost in a lake ...
Pentax K-7
Pentax K-5
Nikon D3200
Nowadays very much the old, misunderstood, twin to the K-5: Slower, less ISO and lower resolution, but other than that, it's superb in its own right! Sadly the K-5 combined the skills of the K-7 with a new hat full of new ones!
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO
Sigma 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM
Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM
Sigma 19mm F2.8 EX DN
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN | A
Other gear:
  • Edixa Reflex A Fifties West-German design (somewhat similar to the East-German Practica), looking pretty much like a Pentax Spotmatic, and using the same type of lenses, so I had a mix! Mamiya made similar cameras then, so I had one of those, too!
  • Kodak Brownie Starlet
  • Minox 35s One of the first really compact full-format cameras around, with excellent optics (rumoured to be of Leica design)! I used mine so much that they eventually wore down!
  • Polaroid cameras Various models, not needed any longer, so scrapped!
