My view on cameras, lenses and all around the hardware
The total distance I recorded with my Garmin (without flight) is shown here: On Madeira, 2053 kilometres were covered over the 2 weeks. During this time I used 2 cameras with overlapping lenses. The Nikon D800 was mainly used in Funchal in the market hall and at the volcano visit. Otherwise the Nikon D850 was […]

I own several Sigma lenses and the company has grown recently by introducing their new concept of Contemporary, Art and Sport lens classification. While Contemporary is their consumer (budget) area, the Art and Sport series represent high class lens builds having Art labeled lenses in the lower focal length area and Sport classifying the tele […]
Always forgot to create these presets. Complete set of presets using SpyderCheckr for the D7200 are available here.
