Started taking photographs when I was about 15 years old with a gift camera, an Agfa Click. A few years later I began with developing films in our basement. Bought an old 6x9 folding camera and an even older 9x12 cm camera with glass plates. An Opemus enlarger was added, soon followed by an LPL 6x6 color enlarger in a real darkroom. Developing in the strangest soups and enlarging, everything in black and white.
The number of subsequently "worn out" cameras can no longer be determined exactly, but it is considerable, even for a camera freak, from half-35 mm to 6x9! I took photographs privately, but also for my work as a journalist, editor/editor-in-chief of trade magazines, often traveling in the Netherlands and abroad.
Many more digital cameras followed …..
In 2000 with Kodak DC260, 1,5 Mp!
In 2005 I stopped carrying around heavy camera gear and switched to my first Panasonic superzoom.
I liked it so much that nowadays I still have a superzoom, a (unfortunately not so small, but very universal) Panasonic Lumix FZ10002 superzoom (1” sensor).
But if possible I prefer to use one of my other (small) 1” sensor cameras and lenses of my favorite old Nikon 1 series and …… sometimes my phone.
