Here are some of my tools.

Photography

Camera:Fuji X100s

There was a time when I used to be quite a gearhead. A list of all my previous photography gear would include, a Canon 5D Classic, an amazing affordable full-frame camera body. Some lenses include the Canon EF 35mm f/2.0 and the nifty-fifty Canon EF 50mm f/1.8II. A couple years ago, I’ve decided to put all this gear behind, and haven’t really looked back since. The Fuji does a magnificent job albeit having an APS-C sized sensor, there is something I do miss about full-frame that I’ll just have to live with.

I do all my photography and programming on my Macbook Pro. I’ve customized it with more RAM and added a solid state disk replacing the optical tray. OS X is a surprisingly good enviornment for programming since it was built upon a variant of BSD and is fully POSIX compliant.
