My full name is Serguei Moutovkin, though I don't like this French spelling (French is the official language in Russian International Documents). I like all things tech and all things engineering.


Currently living in Irvine, California, with prior 20 years in Toronto, Canada. I moved to Canada way back in 1997 from the place where I was born - Moscow, Russia.


Photography is my long-running hobby. I started taking pictures when I was 6 years old on my grandfather's Zorki film camera and by 8 got my own Lomo camera.

Ten years later I got my first Digital SLR - Canon Digital Rebel XT. For the next 13 years, I was a Canon shooter with Rebel XT, 40D, 7D being my cameras in short succession. Finally, in 2018 I switched to Micro 4/3 and Panasonic Lumix G9 specifically. Got some good glass during the transition - some Panasonic Leica (8-18, 12-60, 42.5 f/1.2, 100-400, 12 f/1.4, 45-200 f/3.5-5.6) and 60mm f/2.8 Olympus Macro.


Also, a number of supplementary cameras are always around - SONY RX100M3 (great camera, but sold it before betting Micro 4/3 camera) and Panasonic TS5 for wet adventures and one of the smartphones to take now popular low-fi photos.


At the end of 2018, a radically new camera landed in my backpack - DJI Mavic Air. The perspectives previously unseen are possible, wherever it is allowed to fly the drone. Fewer and fewer places do...
