On my road trip in August to the Nordkapp, my main focus for the first time was filming rather than photography. I’ve now edited all the footage and created a short video of this trip. I hope you enjoy it.Read more
I’ve used the lockdown phases during Covid 19 to realize a project which I had in my mind for quite some time.
I like traveling, I like road trips, and I had the wish to do this in a more sustainable way. I’m also interested in new technologies. Therefore I became curious whether it would be possible to explore my beloved wild places with an electric vehicle instead of flying and renting a car with a combustion engine.

I’ve finally managed to produce two videos about our trip last year to Melbourne, Sydney, and Tasmania. They are now on YT and I will also add some links directly in the trip report.Read more
In 2019 I traveled twice to Tasmania, one of my favorite places in the world. In January I went alone to do some longer hikes and in August I did my first winter trip to Tasmania together with Kerstin and Linnéa.
The new Sigma 2.8/14-24mm DG DN is a fantastic ultra wide-angle lens. Sadly it has no filter thread for front filters (like most ultra wides). But at least it has an integrated rear filter holder and several rear filter options exist now for this lens.

A couple of months ago Samyang announced a new XP 10mm f/3.5 ultra-wide-angle lens. It seems like I’m one of the first people in the world who got a production sample of this lens.
In 2012 I had a great road trip together with my friend Philippe along the Carretera Austral in southern Chile. Last year I returned to Patagonia. This time my friend Mark joined me. Our main focus was the southern part of the Carretera including several side trips that I hadn’t done on my 2012 trip.
Before coming to the tripod collar topic let me give you a short introduction of why I’ve chosen the Sigma 14mm F1,8 DG HSM Art lens for my Sony A7RII cameras.
I’m really happy with my normal wide-angle lenses: Zeiss Batis 18mm, Loxia 21mm, and Loxia 25mm. All 3 have good to excellent corner sharpness, great colors, and only a little bit of field curvature.
