|Nikon Coolpix 995|
Nikon Coolpix 995 is my first digital camera, several times a job abroad; camera is always with me. As a beginner, the results of a 3 Megapixel camera is quite satisfactory, no matter landscapes, indoor, portrait orvmacro photos I earn a lot with this camera. Because I like it, that’s three times now I change the camera batteries, currently I am looking for external power pack for power source.

|From My Nikon D800|
The biggest surprise of Nikon in early 2012 is the Nikon D800 launch in February 2012, it surprised many people, including me of course. Six months after its launch, this camera is still difficult to obtain in the market. I tried contacting Nikon authorized dealer in Indonesia for this amazing camera, but to no avail. There are several shops that sell at very high prices; wife suggested to be patient for several months. Finally, on October 22, 2012, I got this camera hanging on one of the camera stores in Yogyakarta at a price that is not too high compared to its original price, and I bought it right away.
Nikon D800 launched with a high specification which is 36 megapixel, full frame and a decent price. In fact this camera is a great alternative for fans of “medium format” photography. Compare prices camera “medium format” which can reach a price of Mercedes cars.

At that time I had a camera was a Nikon FM2, the lens I have is still relatively good (I forget what the previous lens). I borrowed from one of my brother’s friend is the manual focus 50mm f/1.2 lens of this type; even I’ve fallen in love with this product, given the sharp and the bokeh is gorgeous. Snap there, one here in the capital city of Perth in Western Australia, take a self portrait with a tripod is still small and fragile, the wind blown, suddenly my camera which still on tripod fell towards the front … aaargh …! Oh my God… Dented the lens periphery. Thanks God, the camera body was still ok … check everything, it can still work well, also the lens. On my return from Jakarta, I forced to find second lens in Blok-M; there is a sale when the price was 1.2 million IDR; immediately I bought it to replace. I fixed old lens a long while in Yogyakarta and Thanks God… It can be used again and is still sharp.

Nikkor 28mm f/2.8, is the first wide angle lens I have, when it bought the former second alias. Forgot about the price, I bought it at one of the former camera store at the mall Jl. Solo in Yogyakarta. When I go back there, it seems that the store no longer exists. Problem now is the lens focus ring and it has not been a lot of dust node; so the result is not really sharp. Apparently I need to wash my old lenses. I’ve even this lens pair with my old CPL filter.

In the Nikon website page on “Features & Nikon Lens History” – Nikkor 80-200mm f/4.5 lens is mentioned that this includes an antique lenses because the product th, 1970, designed by Mr. Nakamura. On the Nikon website, this product is no longer even listed in the “Old Product”. Although this lens is the old product, after I try to use with my Nikon D3 camera body – sharp and stunning results. Only the rubber lens body is starting to harden and make it difficult when turning his focus ring.

AFS Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED lens is a congenital (kit lens) along with the Nikon D80, the resulting picture quality including high-low noise and less sharp. However, this lens is always faithful my Nikon D80 Infrared camera. Advantages of this lens is light weight.

This is a lens with VR technology (Vibration Reduction) I have the first official name is the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (4.3x).

Lens AF-S NIKKOR ED 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is the Auto Focus Silent Wafe Nikkor zoom lens motors with 24-70mm focal length (wide angle – normal range), this main lens I use often to take photos of landscape and family events , so the lens is equipped with several filters like CND, CPL, Gradual ND. Sharpness and color clarity that results from this lens, it is very remarkable; that almost all the Nikon professional photographers who use it. This lens has also been widely recommended for the camera body-full frame camera from Nikon. No bad things to see of these lenses as long as used for full frame.
|AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED|
The official name of this lens is the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED. When it was first released by Nikon lenses with Nikon D3 body, many photographers the world who were “astonished” to see this lens because it looks big, strong and characteristic of the curved front lens. with bandaged “hood” thick at the front. I personally love this lens, because the images produced for a class of “Ultra Wide Angle” very sharp in the opening whatever aperture. Although this lens is no shortage of “thread” for the front filter and lens cap are easy to fall in / out; this remains a mainstay lens for landscape photos and cityscape.
|AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D|
The first impression of the image to see the AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D is curved and unique – I love it. The desire to have this fisheye lens type is long ago, but I just bought after I moved with my family to Yogyakarta. Some photographers do not like it because the resulting curve effect. Several times I tried hunting around the area Malioboro street with this lens, but when I have not found a suitable object to the use of these lenses, like the form of the domes of mosques, the sport stadium, another architect of a curved shape.
|AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D|
Macro Photography has long been my passion, this lens as the official Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8D Micro, One thing I don’t like this lens is the object distance that must be close. In addition to the macro picture, this lens can also be for the reproduction of old photographs. For photos of insects because of the difficulty with close proximity, so I use a homemade macro box.

Nikon Speedlight SB-800 is my main flash that I use with the Nikon D3, but rare used since my hobby is landscape photography. Normally, I use to shoot a lot of indoor family event.
|Speedlight Nikon SB-22|
Nikon Speedlight flash SB-22 is a product of old / antique. I am looking for an explanation of this product on the official internet page of the Nikon, but none. This speedlight including first-generation technology that uses TTL (Through The Lens), so the lighting adjust the lens aperture is used. Thereby producing the desired image, for example we want a photo with a large aperture opening to a short distance (eg on a close-up), then the power light will be flashing with a small power automatically.
Manfroto 718B Tripod is the third tripod I have. The other tripods are not good before and is not solid too. With this tripod, I feel comfortable because it is simple, not too big and easy to use. Strong enough to support the Nikon D3 camera that I have.
Some other additional equipment, such as Cable release, Motor Drive, Battery backup and memory cards are not put here on purpose because I think it’s not the main gear.
