What's in my bag?
I have been an enthusiastic Fujifilm-X user since 2013. On this page you´ll find my camera equipment. It is also a reference, as people often ask me about my gear and how I use it.
Why Fujifilm?
I love Fujifilm’s design and continuous improvement philosophy combined with their optical and sensor performance and analog inspired controls and ergonomics. Fujifilm’s heritage in color science is legendary and their digital film simulations deliver great results straight out of their camera's. My main reason for the X-system is that it is so small, light and intuitive, that it ensures not only a nice way of working. It also helps me to create an intimacy between me and my subject.

How I use my camera’s
X100V - my compact perfect every day companion
My most frequently used camera is my X100V. I use it for personal projects, travelling and even client work. Together with the two conversion lenses it is my perfect every day companion, covering at least 90% of my photography needs. Being a very compact and light setup, it still delivers me a 28mm, 35mm, and 50mm focal length. According to my Lightroom metadata, I have been shooting ~23mm (35mm equiv.) in 66% of all my XF16-55 photos over the past years. And 80-85% of all my photos were taken up to ~35mm (50mm equiv.) So, my X100 kit is in many situations the only gear I really need.
X-Pro2 - gets the job done
I primarily use my X-Pro2 for intensive use, client work and longer travels. It has the Fujifilm X-Trans III 24MP sensor with Classic Chrome and Acros film simulations. The dual card slot feels safe. It is a perfect fit in size/handling and image quality for my photography. 
With the X-Pro2 I mainly use the XF56 F1.2 which is my default lens for creating portraits. I use my two Fujinon zoom lenses almost only for client work and longer travels.
If I feel like it, I use one of the small and excellent XF16/XF23/XF35/XF50 ‘Fujicrons’ on the X-Pro2. That is always a great combo!

X-Pro1 - the OG
The X-Pro1 is forever a classic. I like to use it for taking my time and slowing down my photography process while exploring the good old X-Trans I 16MP sensor quality. Today, the X-Pro1 is still a great and durable camera in a lot of ways. And it definitely has a soul!
I especially love using the original XF18 and XF35 lenses on my X-Pro1, they are a perfect fit. The small and excellent XF16/XF23/XF35/XF50 ‘Fujicrons’ are a joy to use on the X-Pro1. Furthermore, I am having fun experimenting with classic/manual lenses on the X-Pro1. 
X-E2 - ‘the Mistress’
I recently added the X-E2 with the X-Trans II 16MP sensor to my classic setup. Together with the Fujicrons it simply doesn’t get any smaller in the Fujifilm X-mount segment. The X-E2 also serves as an extra/backup camera for client work.

iPad Pro - mobile workflow
For my personal computing, I exclusively use an Apple iPad Pro M1, so my photography workflow is completely iPad based. In post edit I almost always use Lightroom and sometimes Affinity Photo. Besides the Adobe Cloud and local backup, all my selected images are backupped online at Flickr.
