I'm an administrator at Swedish Wikipedia. My main focus is on Swedish and Norwegian Wikipedia. But I also contributes to Wikimedia Commons and make small edits in the other language versions.

I have uploaded over 1200 pictures to Wikimedia Commons. Mostly from Stockholm, but also from Härjedalen in northern Sweden and from my travels in Argentina, Chile, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.

Equipment[edit]

My Nikon Nikon FM
  • Canon DIGITAL IXUS 850 IS
    My first camera. I have taken thousands of pictures with this camera. When I bought it, it was a good compact camera and I have never been disappointed. Here are some great pictures taken with camera: Fitz Roy, Djurgårdsvarvet, and Storskär.
  • Nikon D80+AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. This camera is not my own, but I borrow it sometimes.
    The camera is ok. I'm annoyed by the noise level, especially in dark areas, and the problems in bright sunlight. Some of my favorite pictures with the camera: Cityvarvet, Helags and Lumakranen (here, I started to use the manual settings for the first time). I have (april 2011) started using my 50mm lens (see below) and shoot in RAW format and everything is much better!
  • Nikon FM+Nikon 50mm F/1.8 AI+Soligor 80-200mm f/4.5 macro lens.
    My last purchase ($ 62 for the entire package including lenses on Ebay). Full frame sensor cameras are expensive (Nikon start $2,200 dollar (D700), Canon at $2,399 (Canon EOS 5D Mark II), Leica $6,995 (M9)). Can I get the same quality with a $60 camera from 1978?

Chaitén (Canon IXUS)[edit]

In memory of the city of Chaitén, which was completely destroyed in 2008 after a series of volcanic eruptions and floods. Today it is a ghost town. I was there in January 2008, four months before the disaster.
