My Equipment


If there's even anyone who might be interested to know the tools that I'm using for all these photos, here they are. My first camera body is the Nikon F90X, which has since been sold to make way for the Nikon F100. Lenses that I'm currently using includes the Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5D IF-ED, the Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED, Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D IF-ED, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D Micro and Tokina ATX-Pro 28-80mm f/2.8. Previous flash unit used was the SB-26 Speedlight which has been replaced by the SB-80DX. Backup point and shoot cameras includes the the Minolta Freedom Zoom 140Ex (with a 38-140mm Asperical lens) and previously, the Yashica T5 (with a 35mm Carl Zeiss lens).

Tripod and monopod used is the Manfrotto 190B and Manfrotto 079-4, with ballhead Manfrotto 168 and 352RC. When I'm out shooting, I'll have my gears in one of my three Lowepro bags, namely the Lowepro Nova 5, the Lowepro Mini Mag AW or the Lowepro Rover Light. Sometimes, my Domke PhoTOGs photo vest comes in handy to hold all those little accessories (lens cap, films, batteries, filters, etc) or even a small lense while I'm busy shooting.

I started off shooting with Kodak films but have since been using Fuji films almost entirely. These days, I've mostly been shooting slides only. Fuji Astia (ISO 100) are often used when I'm doing portraits while Fuji Velvia (ISO 50) and Fuji Provia 100F (ISO 100) are the other two film that I've mostly been using. The slides are usually viewed through a loupe on a small lightbox and are sometimes projected through the relatively cheap and modest Leica Pradovit 150 IR slide projector.

Below are some of the stuffs that is on my 'wishlist'. For lenses, the Nikkor AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED would be really great (but way beyond my budget). As for the body, I would definitely love to get my hand on a digital SLR body.
