Welcome to KnutIvars.net!

Welcome to KnutIvars! - a photographer who works as a systems developer (or was it the other way around?), but also works part time as a photographer. If you're looking for a photographer; take a look at my page www.LKFoto.no.

Who am I?


I'm a 1982 model male that lives together with my wife, and two of the worlds sweetest girls. I'm a man of many hobbies, and I will write some about my "passion" for photography, high-fidelity and DIY in general (amongst other). Please feel free to contact me.

I'm passionate about photography, both the art and the equipment (and DIY). Please take a look at my tumblr-page and follow me there. I'm also @knutivars on Instagram - have a look! :-)

My current gear...


I use the microFourThirds system, and love it! - I currently posess two Olympus E-M1, an E-M5, and an IR-Converted E-PM2. I have most of the PRO lens lineup from Olympus in addition to many of the primes. I love the way one can use the E-M1 as a "small-ish" camera with the tiny but brilliant 17.1.8, but make it "huge" by attatching the batterygrip and a 40-150 f2.8. The sensor-size is seen as many as a draw-back, but I don't see much of a problem there. The ISO performance is good enough, and knowing how to utilize the camera as the tool it is, really give great results. I use these cameras for all my work - from studio to sports, personal to wildlife. The advantage of the EVF combined with a highly customizable body is to me the key to getting the job done!


Except for photography, I have many other hobbies as well... I'm into HiFi and home cinema - especially DIY, make my own speakers, amplifiers and other components. I'm also kind of a geek and like to work with computers and play Skyrim when I need some peace and quiet... and don't bother to go outside.
