Cameras

  • NIKON Coolpix 7900 (August 2005): One of my first cameras. A point'n'shot compact camera with 7.1 Mpx.

  • NIKON D3000 (November 2009): My first reflex camera. A basic Nikon camera with 10.75 Mpx in a crop sensor CCD of 23.6 x 15.8 mm.

  • NIKON D7000 (June 2012): My second reflex camera. With live view, better response to noise, 16.2 Mpx in a crop CMOS sensor of 23.6 x 15.6 mm.

  • ZORKI 4 (September 2012): One of my firsts film camera. Totally mechanical, without automatisms, without sensors, without battery, only your knowledge, your exposure data tables and your photographic subject. It's a commemorative piece of the 50th anniversary of Soviet government (1917-1967).

  • NIKON D810 (August 2016): My last camera. One of the most valued professional cameras in the market at the moment of my purchase. With 37.09 Mpx is the highest resolution camera in Nikon brand. Its sensor is a fullframe CMOS of 35.9 x 24.0 mm. With an excellent response to noise and a very high dynamic range.

    Lenses

  • AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR (November 2009): The lens for all circumstances. I've used it for landscapes at 18mm very often.

  • SAMYANG 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC (July 2010): My fisheye. Very artistic results with a strong pincushion distortion. Ideal for small places.

  • TAMRON AF 70-300mm f/4-5,6 Di LD Macro 1:2 (November 2010): This is my wildlife lens, at 300mm you can to take pictures of bird or others animals at long distances. I used it for macro some time ago, but after I increased my gear for that.

  • SAMYANG 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF (June 2012): This is my choice for portraits. With long focal length, is my most luminous lens at the moment (f/1.4). Those two features produce a very short depth of field and a interesting blurred backgrounds for portraits.

  • AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II (June 2012): The included lens for my Nikon D7000 pack. I don't like it very much: shorter than my TAMROM 300mm for far objects and with poor focusing for landscapes (I have other lenses better for landscapes).

  • TAMROM 90mm Macro f/2.8 SP Di VC USD (June 2013): A.k.a. "Wen 90mm", it's my lens for macro photography. With a great optical quality, it builds images at 1:1 scale by itself. It can do it even at 2:1 with 68mm of extension tubes.

  • SAMYANG 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC (August 2016): This is my current choice for landscapes. A very wide angle lens, combined with a fullframe camera produces a very open views, with a little pincushion distortion only in the borders, interesting for artistic purposes. It has a very high optical quality and produces very sharp images. By the other hand, it has a little problem in the calibration of the focus ring.

    Lighting

  • DÖRR DAF-14 ring flash (September 2013): It's a TTL ring flash, ideal for macrophotography. It produces light around the photographed object. The TTL system calculate the amount of additional light that the scene needs.

  • Neewer softbox (August 2016): a lightbox to take pictures in studio with better homogeneous lighting. It uses two powerful lamps to illuminate it (continuous light, it needs a AC power source).

  • Led Lenser P7.2 torch (May 2017): Led Lenser is an well-known German brand of high quality torches. The model P7.2 is a light but powerful torch (320 lm). It can be used in night photography as a continuous light source, for global lighting or for light-painting.

  • MEIKE multi-power battery pack for Nikon D7000: A grip for Nikon D7000. It increases the stability, makes vertical pictures be easier and you can carry an additional battery.

  • MEIKE extension tubes (July 2013): They are three tubes of 12mm, 20mm and 36mm. They can be used separately or combined. Using all them you have an extension of 68mm and it increase the size of the image over the sensor. It also decreases the minimal focus distance. The usage of these tubes doesn't affect to image quality (there is not lenses inner), but it is affected for a decreased of the light amount.

  • PIXTIC photographic bellows (August 2016): A bellows of 150mm (like the extension tubes, but variable, longer and darker than them).

  • Remote control:

    • JUE YING PU universal remote control (IR).
    • VILTROX JY-120-N1 radio remote control (August 2016).

  • Filters: Several circular filters (UV, polarized, sky, etc.).

  • Cards: Several kinds of SD cards. I usually use currently a LEXAR SDXC II (class 10) 1000x (150 Mb/s) of 64 Gb as main card.
