My first SLR camera was an entry level Nikon F60 film camera and since then I have become accustomed to the Nikon brand. After the F60 I progressed to the F80 for a short while before converting to digital with the D70. A few of the images on this website were taken with the D70 but the vast majority taken with my next camera the D300. Finally I took the plunge last year and invested in a full frame Nikon D610. My previous cameras were all DX (APS or cropped) sensor camera like most consumer/enthusiast cameras are which deliver a good level of quality however the D610 with a full frame sensor takes the quality up to a professional level. I can now produce prints that are pin sharp at A2 size and beyond.

I used the following lenses with my DX sensor cameras:

Sigma DC 18-50mm f2.8 EX macro
Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm f4-5.6
Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 LD macro

And now these lenses with the full frame D610:

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm VR
Tokina SD Pro 50-135mm f2.8 DX
Samyang Tilt-Shift 3.5 / 24mm

I also use a head height Manfrotto 055X Pro B tripod with a Manfrotto 410 geared head. A heavy beast but brilliant for landscape work.

I use the following filters:
Sigma 105mm DG circular polariser with a Lee filters holder adapter
Lee filters ND graduates
Lee filters Neutral density overall
Lee filters Big stopper 10
