My Cameras

I have three cameras – two Pentax dslrs and a Fujifilm mirrorless camera. I also use my smartphone – A Samsung Galaxy A50 – and a compact camera – a Panasonic Lumix TZ60. All of the photographs on this website were taken with one of the above cameras.

The camera is shown with the following lenses:

A 24-70 mm f/2.8; a 28-105 mm f/3.5-5.6; and a 35 mm f/2 . The 15-30 mm lens has now been sold to help pay for other lenses.

A Pentax 70-200 f/2.8 lens

Most of the lenses photographed have now been sold to pay for The Fujifilm mirrorless camera and additional Fujinon lenses.

My KP lenses are: 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6 (mounted); a 21 mm f/3.2; a Sigma 10-20 mm f/3.5; a 28 mm f/3.5; and a Sigma 70 mm f/2.8 macro lens.

I bought my Fujifilm XT-4 26 MP mirrorless cropped sensor camera in June 2021. I wanted a small, light camera with better autofocus than my Pentax models. It’s shown here with an XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 telephoto lens. Since then other Fujinon lens that I have bought comprise an XF 10-24 f/4 wide angle lens; various XF prime lenses that include a 23 mm f/2; a 35 mm f/2; a 50 mm f/2; and a 90 mm f/2. I have also acquired a 50-140 mm f/2.8 lens.

I still use all of my cameras from time to time, though the X-T4 is my favourite general purpose camera. However, for an airshow in July 2022, I used the Pentax KP with the Pentax full-frame 70-200 mm f/2.8 that provided 30 mm equivalent reach. Despite the weight I managed to use it almost all the time handheld with good results. On another occasion, I used the Pentax K-1 plus a 24-70 mm lens tripod-mounted to do some shots of skyscrapers but with the Fuji mounted with the 50-140 mm lens for some closer shots.
