I am not a photo hobbyist and can certainly not be considered a photographer in any sense of the word. But I am infected with the ‘gadget disease’ so I have purchased a couple of cameras (which, for most part, I shoot on the ‘auto’ setting) under the guises of them being able to take better pictures of my kids. These are in addition to the decent cameras incorporated onto the smartphones that my wife and I carry around everyday. Depending on the location, situation, and day of the week, the food pics you see in the posts with be shot by either of the cameras below (I will make an effort to note the camera used in future posts):
Olympus OM-D EM5
I’ve been using this camera along with the Panasonic/Leica 25mm lens for almost all of the photographs you see in my posts after July 2012. If I’m traveling, the pictures you see have most likely been taken with the Olympus Zuiko 12-50mm lens.
Apple iphone 5
Unless I forget to bring my OM-D (or if it runs out of batteries or if I forgot to put the memory card back in the camera), I will not resort to using the camera on the iphone 5 (not that there’s anything wrong with its more-than-capable camera). If you see pictures taken by the iphone 5 in my posts, they were most likely taken by my wife. She is a much, much better photographer than I will ever be.
The Nikon D90
The D90 mostly stays home. So when you see pictures of takeout, bread, macaron, wine, and dessert. It was probably taken by the D90.
Update: The D90 is seeing less and less action as time passes. The Olympus OM-D has basically taken over all of the photographing dutiess.
The devices below have been replaced and are no longer being used to take the photographs you see in my posts. They performed admirably while they were in service, and all of them have moved on to new employers via Craigslist. I wish them all the best.
The Olympus E-PL1
This is primarily used on the weekends, when we take the kids out. I usually have a wide angle lens on this camera so it takes better landscape pics. If you see some photos with a slightly distorted, fish-eye effect, this camera/lens combo was probably the culprit.
The iPhone 4S:
This is my wife’s phone. Most of the pics in the posts you see were taken by the camera on this phone. It takes much better photos than the camera on my phone.
Sometimes when my wife’s phone is low on batteries, when she is on the phone, or when she forgets the phone at home, I take the photographs of the food with my phone. The camera takes eons to focus and captures images at a glacial pace. Basically my phone is responsible for all the bad pictures you see.
The above cameras are/were responsible for taking all of the pictures of every post on this site. I will introduce other cameras (such as my daughter’s) if I use them to take any of the posted pictures in the future.
