Hi, this is Kreuzschnabel, a German engineer of media technology and tech writer.

In the first place, I contribute photographs to Commons. I prefer to use Olympus gear over the widespread N… and C… brands, mainly for the excellent lenses Olympus makes (at affordable prices). Having started with the E-500 DSLR and advanced to the E-620 and E-5, I switched happily to the wonderful mirrorless, tiny OM-D Micro Four Thirds system in 2013, starting with the E-M5 and rounding the set out later with the phenomenal E-M1 as soon as it finally got shipped into my direction.

I sold nearly all of my zoom lenses and use primes mostly, for their faster aperture and altogether better (and prettier) image quality. The only zoom lenses I use with Micro Four Thirds are the outstanding M.Zuiko 12–40 and 40–150 f/2.8 PRO zooms.

Images are frequently re-developed from RAW files using the RawTherapee software.

Oh yes, this is a microsoft-and-apple-free desktop, I use Kubuntu on a Lenovo Thinkpad, to which a HP LP2465 monitor is hooked.
