The Equipment

I started photography with a Sony NEX-3, one of the first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera on the market, in summer 2011. So my first serious step in photography started with Sony's APS-C format. It took me just 2 years till the APS-C format was not good enough anymore. Therefore I switched to full frame and since this change I am only using full frame cameras like the Sony A99 or the A7. APS-C is now just for backup or for some extra zoom or  dangerous experiments.
