About me:

My interest in photography began when using my father's Kodak Retinette 1B during a vacation to the USA in 1976. I then bought my first serious camera, a Canon QL17, when I was on a six month assignment in Hong Kong, as part of my Engineering degree. That camera stayed with me until it was stolen at Heathrow airport in 1996.

After that setback, I failed to get serious again until I was on assignment in Tokyo, 2001-06. It was there that I discovered Konica, starting with a beautiful used Auto S2 rangefinder and then moving on to some fine Autoreflex SLRs and lenses. That became my primary user equipment until moving to Shanghai and switching to digital in 2007. My Fujifilm S100fs then became my primary camera and I still love using it. However, in 2014, I discovered how adaptable the Sony E-mount system was to old MF SLR lenses and my Sony a3000 has now become my favorite user, along with my old Konica Hexanon AR lenses.
