    Primary camera: Nikon F3HP.

    Lens/Tripod/Flashgun etc: 24, 50 and 85mm lenses. Uni-Loc 1700 tripod, not used for years. Camera bag is a gas mask haversack lined with cut up camping mat.

    What you like and don't like about the camera: The LCD in the viewfinder is a bit crap, tiny and at the top left of the frame. Otherwise it is perfect.

    Secondary cameras (and what you use them for): FM2n, Nikkormat Ftn.

    Plus and minus points of your other cameras: The FM2 would be great if it had a HP viewfinder, I can't get on with it with my milk bottle-like glasses. The Nikkormat is beautiful but has a dull viewfinder with no split-image, only microprism; it's okay in good light.

    Ideal/dream camera set up: The F3HP is staying, but I'm saving for a Fuji XT-1. I like the X-Pros, but I like big viewfinders and am not sure I could get on with theirs.

    Photo software used: GIMP, gThumb. I'm learning.

    I share my photos on Instagram here.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    I bought a D500 a week or so ago, supplanting my D300. It's really good. I've set it to Auto ISO which I'd never have done before - within sensible parameters, the thing is pretty much ISO-invariant.

    Lenses these days are:

    - Nikon 18-200 VR
    - Sigma 10-20
    - Tamron 90mm Macro
    - Nikon 50mm f/1.8

    At some point I might get the Sigma 150-600 or similar, and upgrade the Sigma 10-20 to the Nikon 10-20 VR.

    Been using that bag for almost 2 weeks in spain ...a total recommend..a way more relaxed hol without having to be hyper aware on public transportation and crowds

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    I'm a big fan of either getting bags with built-in waterproof liners, or buying a separate waterproof stuff-bag to use as a bag-liner. Saves a lot of tears, given how much electronic kit everyone carries nowadays.
