My name is Christian Jensen, born in south west of Norway and currently living close to the middle of Norway in a little town called Orkanger. I have a masters degree in Marine engineering, but currently I’m working within the electronics business at a company called Simpro AS. I live together with my wife, our child and our dog.
I guess I’ve always been interested in photography. Only a couple of years old I got my first camera and went on camera expeditions together with my father. Still I did not end up as a professional photographer but rather a happy amateur. Photography has always been an interest I’ve had, and some sort of camera has always been with me on my journeys.
I do love being outside. I prefer going with my mountain bike, but a hike will work as well. And the camera always tag along. This web page will be just about that. The camera that comes along. The coming year I’ve decided to spend more time trying to capture the right moments instead of just rushing by. I guess you’ve heard the words composition, light, subject and timing when it comes to good quality photographs, and so have I. I’ve never really understood the full meaning of it, nor being skilled enough to actually see them all when aiming with the camera.
I do have a selection of camera equipment and here is what I do use:
- Camera bodies
- Fujifilm X-T4: My main body from mid 2020
- Canon M100: My light weight body, mainly for filming
- Sony RX100 II: The camera I take with me when the space is very limited
- Fujinon XF10-24mm F/4 R OIS: A fantastic wide angle zoom (15-37mm equivalent)
- Fujinon XF16-80mm F/4 R OIS WR: A very good normal zoom lens (24-122mm equivalent)
- Fujinon XF100-400mm F/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR: This is the longest telephoto zoom lens Fujifilm makes for their XF mount. With an equivalent of 153-612mm you really get close to your far away subjects.
- Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM: Taking the crop factor of the M100 into account this lens is about 24-70 and a all round lens with acceptable quality
- Canon EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM: This is close to a 35mm considering the crop factor of the M100. A perfect lens for even lighter trips and for filming.
In addition I do have a camera bag, a tripod and some other exteriors that I often take with me on my trips.
