“The Best Camera is the One You Have With You”
That may all be right, but it helps to have the right tool for the job.
I’ve been using a Canon 40D for about ten years, the ef-s 60mm ef 2.8 macro was practically glued on it. A great combination that was for me. When Fujifilm was making their comeback I was very appealed by the X system but holded back till the X100s came out, if I would be forced to choose to have only one camera, I probably choose that one, it looks great (not that that matters), it feels great, it handles well, it produces great files, I love that little gem. I decided to make the switch to Fujifilm completely, but after a year I realized I missed something especially the macrostuff, so I sold the Fujifilm camera and lenses again and went back to Canon for the serious Macro stuff. So now I make the world bigger with a Canon 6D mark II, a 100mm macro usm L and the MP-E 65mm f2.8 1-5x macro. And when I want to travel light I take the Fujifilm X100s. I’m so spoiled. I also have some old glass to use with an adapter on the Canon, I only use two of those regularly, the Helios 44-2 58 and the Zenitar-M 50mm 1.7.

The Software I use
Lightroom cc classic is the tool I use for organizing and in 99% the only tool I use to develop my photos, I do like to use the VSCO presets as a starters point, I have all of them, Nik collection I used to do a lot with but not as much anymore, in some cases but very rarely I use Topaz plugins or the Perfect effects 9 suite. But in the end I don’t like to spend that much time developing photos, so there’s a big possibility I won’t be installing one of the plugins the next time I do a reinstall or upgrade my PC.
