A hobby blog for a hobby. Photos are developed with Rawtherapee.

The camera used in 2017 was a Canon PowerShot SX240 HS with custom firmware (CHDK) installed for taking raw photos.

The setup from 2018 on has been
- an Olympus E-M5, a mirrorless body with a 2.0x crop sensor, and a very well performing in-body image stabilizer allowing freehanding a telephoto lens.
- a legacy Canon FD 300mm f/4 L for reach. (Assembled in 1988)
- a modern Olympus 45mm f/1.8 for shooting wider and in low light, and for experimenting with doing concentric XPan-style panorama crops (65:24 aspect ratio).

Images retain EXIF metadata. No cheap tricks used (e.g. feeding the animals).
