22 Nikon FE2 with 75-150 zoom lens and expired Fuji NPH400. Another classic 80s Nikon which was a kind gift from a colleague Piet Koornhof

23 Nikkormat EL with 24mm f2,8 and Kodak Gold 200. Bought this in mint condition in the late 90s. Never used it much but a reliable and solid SLR.

24 Nikon D610 with 16-35mm zoom lens at 16mm at ISO 100. Still a workhorse of a DSLR with a superb full frame sensor.

25 Nikon V1 with 30-110mm lens at 30mm and ISO 100. Really enjoyed these compact cameras with their 1 inch sensors and fantastic auto-focus. Just a pity about the ergonomics but have had plenty of fun with these on the street.

26 Nikon V1 with 18,5mm lens at ISO 100. A great combo and form factor. Also able to use in bulb mode with Nikon ML-3 remote.

27 Nikon J1 with 10mm lens and ISO100. Even smaller than the V1 and a cherished 50th birthday gift from my brother.

28 Fuji X70 with fixed 18,5mm lens at ISO 200. A pocketable wonder of a travel camera that has impressed me with many memorable images. Tilting screen with a useful remote bulb mode too.

29 Fuji XPro1 with Samyang 12mm lens at ISO 200. Was so intrigued by the XPro1 as a hybrid digital rangefinder when it was launched and acquired a secondhand one later. Slow but quite a keeper.

30 Fuji XT2 with 10-24mm zoom lens at 10mm and ISO 200. A mirrorless marvel and my daily camera currently with excellent analogue type dials.

31 Fuji GL690 with 105mm f3,5 lens and Kodak Tri-X. A huge 6×9 metal rangefinder which became available on the local second hand market last year and one I was glad to add to the collection. Does produce beautiful portraits.

32 Voigtlander Brilliant with 75mm lens and Lomography RedScale film. This quaint pseudo TLR camera from the thirties was from my father’s collection and not one I really tried out before but on the shoot it probably produced my favourite image.

33 Leica IIIb with 5cm Elmar3,5 and expired Ilford Delta 100. The two Leica IIIs were purchased from an amazing gentleman Zan Swartsberg close to twenty years ago and I would end up purchasing his original M3 in 2018. These rangefinders are truly mechanical masterpieces.
