About me:

Like to draw, and photograph nature, and identified
flying 'objects' (no UFOs), like the moon, bumblebees, aircraft, and, not least, birds!

Have worked in the air force (air transport command), as a firefighter, security officer, journalist, illustrator, and bus driver.

Other gear:
  • Adobe Lightroom 6 The last version of LR that you could buy, and not need to subscribe to!
  • Berlebach Report 3032 A very nice wooden tripod, with leveling head on top, so you don't need to add a second head to do your panormas, or video shoots. Slightly heavier than a similar carbon, but half the price!
  • DXO PhotoLab 3
  • Iridient Developer
  • Sigma TC-1401 Excellent telephoto converter, that wors very well with Nikon lenses as well.

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 ...
Olympus XZ-1
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100
Pentax K-7
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!

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!
