Equipment - Phil Mann Photography

Although I do still have a medium format film camera, I rarely use film anymore. For the last few years, my main camera has been a Nikon DSLR but I am beginning to find that I am more frequently turning to my mirrorless Fujifilm cameras; despite their lower resolution sensors, I appreciate the lightness of this compact system, finding the XT-2 in particular, reminiscent of the Olympus OM camera I owned many years ago.

Whatever camera I am using, I generally attempt to achieve the result I am aiming for 'in camera' and, so, keep post processing and adjustments down to a minimum. I do not suggest that this is the ‘right way’ to work but it is certainly right for me.

70-200mm f4 zoom lens
