Since this is a photoblog and photography is what I love, I thought it might be interesting to know what I carry around in my camera-bag.

  • Nikon D80
  • AF-S Nikkor DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
  • AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D
  • Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG
  • Lensbaby 2.0
  • Manfrotto Modo 785B Tripod
  • Reflecgtor 5in1 (60cm)

The reason why I choose Nikon is mostly because people I know have Nikon, so that I was I had the opportunity to try and get used to. Easy peasy! Then why D80? I wanted something more from the camera and more new than D40 and this was in a good class rate. It's not a pro-camera but not überbeginner either. I like it and it was a good choice.

My first lens after that (18-55 came along as a kitobjective) was Sigma 70-300mm I think. I don't think I would've bought it today, if I would've known more about it. I should've saved money and bought something better but I have used it alot, mostly outside shooting animals etc. Have been hunting birds with it A Lot.

Then came the Lensbaby 2.0 after trying one that my friend has. It's a wonderful lens and can produce great pictures, but it takes practice and patience.

Then I bought Nikkor 50mm and that is what I always always use, I love it! It has a low aperture and right now I want to shoot portraits/people a lot and that lens is very well suited for it.

My friend got a new flash, so I bought her old. Have not used it much though but I got my reflector something during that time and that one I have used a lot more :)

I got my manfrotto tripod for christmas 2009.

Well, that's some basic info about what I use. But remember that no camera or equipment is magical. It's all in the photographer and these are just tools of help^^
