Cameras and Lenses

While my roots are in black and white film photography, I'm currently working exclusively in digital. I prefer cameras that allow me to use movements. For several years I used a tilt-shift outfit that I built around a Fuji APS-C camera and Olympus OM lenses; I wrote about that setup on a page dedicated to tilt-shift on APS-C sensors.

Tilt-shift adapters are very useful, but the range of movements they allow is limited. Therefore in 2019 I changed to my first full-fledged, medium format digital view camera: a Toyo VX23D digital view camera for use with a Fuji GFX 50R. I'm now using an Arca-Swiss F-Universalis (same idea, but lighter).
