Are you wondering how to make the right choice from the huge range of photographic equipment available? There are several factors that play a role in finding the right camera. An important factor is the area of application. Are you planning to take portraits, architectural photos or photos of other things that do not move or only move slightly when taking pictures? Or do you want to take thrilling action photos?
The decision is difficult! We have not changed in the last few years and we also spend countless hours before each purchase identifying, researching and analyzing the right photographic equipment for our needs. There are actually a lot of things that make us more fun.
So we thought we would list our complete photo equipment here, so that you might have less time and effort to find the right equipment and benefit from our research.
In this article we’ll show you our complete equipment, explain why we decided to be satisfied with it and what we use it for.

Here we chose an action cam, which we use almost every day and which we don’t want to miss any more.
In addition to the Action Cam, our current constant companions are the compact system cameras, which simply take excellent pictures but are too good for thrilling sports shots in wind and weather.
Action Cams have become our sweetheart and in terms of price-performance ratio they are hard to beat. We love to have them with us when we want to be especially “light” on the road. Then we simply pack them up and put them in a handbag, jute bag or backpack with our other luggage.
Actions Cams are also highly recommended for professional reasons. So we can take spectacular photos, both for the final customer order and for our portfolio. For anyone who … Read More
