My aim is to use the cheapest cameras to achieve professional results across a wide range of disciplines.

Main Cameras (normal light) :

Lumix Fz200 (12 megapixels)
A very cheap bridge camera with some amazing qualities. It can maintain f2.8 no matter how far you zoom in and you can zoom a lot. Also has some nice official accessories like it's macro and super telephoto lenses. Used for my ordinary, telescopic, macro and micro shots.


Lumix Fz1000 (20 megapixels) :
Lumix's most expensive bridge camera but getting cheaper all the time. Large sensor with a huge range of settings. Can use the Fz200 accessories with a little additional adapter ring. Used for my ordinary, macro and microscopic shots. Serious detail.


Infrared Camera : 

Lumix Lx5 (10 megapixel) :
My original infrared camera. Tack sharp sensor and great images. 720nm

Full Spectrum :

Lumix Lx7 (10 megapixels) :
Not quite as sharp as its predecessor. I had this one modded as full spectrum with meant sources a lot of interesting filters. But this little camera is capable of a lot of diverse imaging. (330 to 1000nm).
There was a LOT to learn with this camera, about how invisible light works and how to represent it but these pics are as taken.

Fujifilm 3D camera :

Incredibly cheap now and can be used for some interesting 3D reconstruction with the right software.
Not necessary for a solid 3D scan but can capture some instant 3D shots at parties and events.

Macro : Lumix Macro lens (DMW-LC55)

This lens also will fit the Fz1000 with a small adjustment ring.


Micro : Raynox MSN-202, tripod.

At this magnification you can only focus on a plane of about .4mm so focus stacking will be needed to get a fully focused photo.

My stack of lenses used for the Full Spectrum camera...

Enhancement & Focus Stacking : PhotoAcute3
3D Scanning : Agisoft PhotoScan.
Photoshop & Lightroom (obviously).
