I have been a long time Olympus shooter dating back to the legendary film OM-1 SLR, which I still own.
My first Digital SLR was an 8 megapixel Olympus E300, which I purchased in January 2005.
I have regularly upgraded my cameras and lens over the period since.
My current range of equipments consists of the following:
- Olympus DSLR Cameras: E-300, E-30, E-5
- A range of Olympus Zuiko Digital Lens in various focal lengths between 11-300mm
- Olympus Teleconverter EC-20 and Macro Extension Tube EX-25
- Olympus Flash FL-50R
Olympus Micro Four Thirds System
- Olympus OM-D E-M1
- Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED Lens, 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO
- Olympus M.Zuiko Teleconverter MC-14
- Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4 IS PRO
- Really Right Stuff TVC-23 Versa Series 3 Carbon Fibre Tripod
- Really Right Stuff BH-40LR Ball Head and B2-40 LR Clamp
- Various RRS tripod accessories, clamps and brackets
- Gitzo GM 2541 Carbon Fibre Monpod and RRS BZ-Pro II Monopod Head
- Various Cokin and Singh Ray Filters
- Various Camera bags by Lowe Pro and Tamrac
Like most serious photographers I suffer from “gear lust” knowing there is better and more expensive equipment out there but due to financial constraints it remains on the wish list.
But knowing that cameras are just a tool, and it is the photographer who ultimately determines the visual impact of images, makes one strive to get the best out of the existing equipment owned.
