My camera setup for photography

06 Oct 2020

I have always loved photography and regularly used my phone as a primary camera. As a kid I owned several film cameras, like the Kodak Ektra 200, and I occasionally took photos as a hobby.

*Kodak Ektra 200
The Kodak Ektra 200 is among many 110 film cameras made by Kodak. It used disposable flip-flash for indoor photography, was made in (West) Germany, and was produced from 1980 to 1987.

Years went by and I never owned a proper camera as I got older, until last year when I decided to get my first camera. I wanted something that was not expensive. And since I’m not a professional and don’t make any money from this, I looked to get something cheap, portable, and with a quick learning curve. So, after some research on Youtube and Reddit, I went with the Canon EOS M50. It came with an EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM kit lens.

I eventually got a few other lenses:

My current Lenses:

  • Canon Lens EF-M 32mm F1.4 STM
    - My favorite lens for portraits and sometimes street photography
  • Canon EF-M 22mm 1:2 STM
    - My main lens for street, architecture photography etc.
  • Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM
    - Non EFM lens, so I use an EF to EF-M converter with it.

Previously owned (Sold):

  • EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM
    - Kit lens that came with my camera.
  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM
    - Cheap pancake lens for portraits. I replaced it with the native EF-M 32mm F1.4

Complete setup:

I mainly use the setup for street photography, portraits, home videos with family, and ocassional Youtube videos. And even though I have this setup, I still use my phone camera (Which is also pretty good) a lot.. especially when I’m not with my camera.

Here are some sample photos with info about the lens that I used:
