iAPX's current gear

Nikon D7500
Nikon D800E
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G
Action/Sport/Kids. When fast is not enough, there you need it!
This is the replacement of my 10 years old D300, and there's nothing more to say about it: never deceived, never failed, this is a perfect tool (except for action/sport/kids that i rarely do).
I learned to frame 50mm on 35mm film camera on 1980. 50mm on FF are still relevant, and as long as you can walk, it offers incredible possibilities.
Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM
Street fighter!

iAPX's wish list

Sorted by most recently added.

Fujifilm X-A7
Fujifilm X100V
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V
Fujifilm GFX 100
Leica C-Lux

iAPX's previous gear

Fujifilm FinePix F10 Zoom
Fujifilm FinePix S7000 Zoom
Leica D-LUX 3
Still works perfectly! Solid construction, great sensor (for it's age), a perfectly coupled lens, Fuji's image processing: photos are greats, comparable in low ISO to my D70 jpegs!!! -- have been decommissioned ---
My first and only bridge. EVF was poor. Sensor was impressive, lens too. Did some fashion shoot with it, as a secondary gear, with my Nikon F4s as main gear. Results were impressivefor that time and that price
Real great gear, I am a fan of pocketable cameras, to wear each and every day, just to be ready. For the record, I was on a Johnny Lang concert, in first row, without my SLR (stupid idiot I didn't think it was possible!). So I took pictures with this DLux 3, and I obtained some real great concert pictures (fully manual), that I am proud of! Seems Jonny Lang liked these live pictures as well as I did!
Nikon Coolpix 880
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3
Fujifilm FinePix X100
Great for it's time, the Nikon 995 without the tag price, or the mechacnic problems ;)
Great pocket camera, in the tradition of Panasonic/Leica pocket gears. As for the Leica D-Lux3, the Canon S100 and now my brand new Leica C (Panasonic LF1 in disguise), this was my choice to be with me each and every day
Slow or wrong AF in low light, Unusable MF. Everything else is top notch.
Canon PowerShot S100
Fujifilm X100S
Leica C (Typ112)
The perfect pocket camera for everyday use or when traveling. Shoot RAW and you will see how incredible this gear is. In fact, it's better than a D100/D70, and usually near the image quality of a D300 in low ISO. I took great San-Francisco pictures with it, pocket cameras are very capable these days!
Everything is perfect, including image quality in JPEG, AF in low light, MF perfectly usable. Maybe even too perfect, even shooting at 6400 ISO (highest level available for RAW), it wasn't as grainy as I would it like to be! Incredible!!!
Christmas 2013 gift, Audi design, I work for fashion companies and it fit very well with the people I work with, the gears I wear everyday. Great IQ, even if I am sure Panasonic LF-1 do as well, there is a statement on design, and perfectly happy about it. My everyday camera and could show you street pictures that were appreciated :)
Canon EOS 350D (EOS Digital Rebel XT / EOS Kiss Digital N)
Nikon D70
Nikon D2X
Bought it used for $350. Still works. Better sensor than a Nikon D200. Simple, efficient, the perfect beginner's gear (I wasn't at that time but wanted an inexpensive SLR)
My first DSLR, solide build and image quality for the price (at this time). Took me time to master it (including custom jpeg curves), and had great moments with it, as well as for MF portraits than for shows.
Pro gear with a deceptive sensor, comparable to the D200 sensor (they are derivatives), they might as well have kept the better D70/D100 sensor with a refresh for high ISO.
Nikon D200
Nikon D300
Pentax K10D
The D200 is probably the least interesting SLR I had, with a noisy sensor that was worse than the 6MP D70/D100 sensor, from my point of view.
This is the king of the king, a perfect APS-C camera, that I kept 10 years before rselling it, still working absolutely flawlessly. The kind of camera that you would take with you if your life (or business in this case) depend on it. That never deceived.
Good gear, robust, great controls (including ISO control, and Pentax specific priority modes). Few lenses at that time. No way to go Full Frame on the long run. Sold for a couple of hundreds, no one wants to buy used Pentax gears. My loss
Samsung GX-1S
Nikon D610
Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D
Bought used, to do concert photography, kowingly security may break it or take it. Used with a full manual 135mm f/2 that was perfect for this use. Had awesome Tina Turner, Celine Dion and some others concert pictures with it: waow!
A great full frame dslr. With a 85mm f/1.4, it's a killer tool for portraiture, and with a 70-200 f/2.8 it's a weapon for live concert photography. Will be replaced within months by a D750 or follower (same sensor and IQ, better AF)
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D
Other gear:
  • Apple QuickTake 150 (Yes!!!!) The UFO of digital photography, visited motorbikes events with it for motos.com, native resolution was VGA 640x480, with 320x240 option to increase capacity! loL! Perfect for web usage of these times! Usage of digital gear enable me to put online pictures of these events the night eafter opening, largely before any printed media!
