Fujifilm X100F
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100
Fujifilm X-T2
My 8th digital camera. Oh how I love this camera. It is a joy to shoot with.
My 5th digital camera.I bought it to keep in the the glovebox of my car so that I always have a camera with me. Takes great photos but the menu system is terrible.
My 9th digital camera. Actually like it a lot better than the Pro2. The viewfinder is a lot better for glasses wearers. Also love the tilt out screen when I use it on a tripod. Got the silver graphite version as I love that classic look and it was on sale at B&H. Recently had a guy ask me if it was a film camera. I liked that.
Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R
Fujifilm XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR
This is a great lens. Zero distortion and is is a nice small size and weight.
This is my first Fuji lens that I got with my X-E1. It is my most used lens and shows a lot of wear on the barrel. Can't see ever selling it.
Fast, fast fast focus with my X-T2. I have the silver one.
Fujifilm XF 50mm F2 R WR
Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS
Fujifilm XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro
Bought it in silver.
I don't use long zooms a lot but it is nice to have when I need it.
Bought this to do some indoor artsy projects over the winter.

I love this B&W conversion software.
Other gear:
  • Adobe Photoshop CS6
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 I have version 6.14, the last non-CC one. One of my goals this year (2019) is to get a lot better at using it.
  • Sekonic L-478DR-U Light Meter Sekonic L-478DR-U Light Meter Got one of these as I am teaching myself how light with speedlights. Makes doing that a lot easier. Also it is a nice tool to use for general outdoor shooting. https://www.sekonic.com/portals/0/products/sekonic-l-478-brochure.pdf

I sold it because I hated it's slow focus. Then Fuji issued a SW upgrade and users say that it now performs a lot better (sigh).
Had a copy in silver but never used it. Sold it as I am a user and don't collect camera stuff. Would rather see it go to someone who will use it.
Wonderful lens! I loved it but sold it to fund a X100F.
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R
Sold it as I rarely used it and I am a user and don't collect camera stuff. Would rather see it go to someone who will use it.
