Birding and digiphotos

About me

I am an enthusiastic Finnish birder and photographer with favorite areas in some lighthouse islands in the outer Finnish archipelago. Particularly important is the island of Utö, where I own an old, cosy pilothouse with my spouse Outi Sarjakoski. That house has been my permanent all-year residence since 2010. A few visits abroad every year (particularly in the WP-area) give more variability and our favourite birding countries include for example Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria and Norway.

My primary camera equipment comprises Canon 1DX MkII + Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM + 1.4x and 2.0x -teleconverters.
As the second and third camera we have Canon EOS 6DMkII and Canon EOS 6D with Canon lenses EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM zoom (with 1,4x extender) and EF24-105/4L IS USM, respectively. For landscape & travel photos I use Canon Powershot G5X camera.

For birdwatching I use a Swarovski telescope ATX 30-70 x 95 with an 1.7x extender.
Our binoculars are Swarovski EL 12 x 50 (Swarovision), Swarovski EL 10 x 32  and Kowa 10 x 32 SV. The Gitzo tripod (No 3531, carbon fiber) supports a Manfrotto 503HDV for the camera.
