Welcome to my PBase galleries. I hope you find something of interest here.
I am a serious amateur photographer who began with film and a trusty old manual Pracktica camera back in the 70's, graduated to a Canon A1 (that was stolen from my London flat in 1990) and then a Canon T90.
After university, photography took a bit of a back seat while I qualified as a barrister and embarked upon my legal career. I am now something of a technogeek with interests in home theatre, scuba diving, computers and digital imaging.
As you can probably tell from my PBase name, I am an expatriate Brit living in the US. By day I am an M&A lawyer for a large US multinational corporation.
My first digital camera was an Olympus D600L, followed by a Canon D30. I now use a Canon 5D Mark II and several Canon EF lenses -- a 50mm 1.4, a 24-105mm IS L zoom, a 28-135mm IS zoom, a 16-35mm L zoom and a 100-400mm IS L zoom. I also have a couple of 550EX flashes and the Canon ST-E2 flash transmitter. All my recent scans have been done using a Canon Canoscan 9900F scanner.
My Canon collection now includes:
Canon FTb, revised version, unofficially known as the FTb-N or FTbn (near mint in box) and FTb Case S (new in box but deteriorated)
Canon A-1 (new in box), and NIB Data Back A
