Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71
Sony DSC-HX5VN cyber-shot
Fujifilm FinePix S5700
Nikon Coolpix L2

I use or have used the following cameras:

My Nikon Coolpix Nikon Coolpix L2 digital camera gave up in September 2007 because of a mechanical malfunction but the company Nikon Deutschland GmbH was not willing to fix it even though the device had a valid warranty. I bought it in Thailand, and Nikon Germany refuses the Thai company branch's acknowledgement of warranty (Nikon should be Nikon, right?!). Nikon Thailand(Niks (Thailand) Co., Ltd.) fixed it free of charge though and I've brought it to relatives until Feb. 2009. My last image I have taken with that camera was in February of 2011. I donated it to my Thai folks again.

Deleted mediaEdit

As of 2013-04-21 (a more recent count is not supported by the software), ~7,000 of my edits/uploads have been deleted. Is that a high amount?

  1. ) In the beginning of my Commons activities, I have transferred some images from the English language Wikipedia without checking sources and licenses at all times.
  2. ) In the beginning of my Commons activities, the rate of correct categories which were applied to files was high and the descriptions were bad. Thus, one hardly could check for existent files prior to upload. Some uploaded files were duplicates (after correct sorting, they appeared in one category).
  3. ) In the beginning of my Commons activities, I have uploaded some low resolution images. They were overwritten by other files from other users in means of a new larger scaled file with the same motif.(which violates the rules → "exact duplicates of files are subject for deletion")
  4. ) Some images I have uploaded were deleted as being duplicates. Such images were uploaded days/weeks/months after my image was uploaded, or they had the "wrong" file extension (PNG/JPG etc.); example: File:Sergej B. Iwanow 2006 MKfS.jpgFile:Msc 2006-Saturday, 09.00 - 11.00 -IMG 3715.jpg
  5. ) Some images I have uploaded were deleted as derivative work while similar images still exist at Commons. Example: A Lufthansa logo (don't remember the file name)
  6. ) Edits on files (as uploader or not) count as deleted edits, too.
  7. ) Newly created categories get deleted as "incorrectly named" but mostly not based upon a concept, most get deleted without discussion. Latest example: Category:Police vehicles in Germany ("in <country>" was widely used → Category:Police vehicles of Germany) — Where's the AfD discussion?
  8. ) Duplicate files get deleted (uploads by another user)
  9. ) Sometimes, pages in the user namespaces are getting obsolete (including redirects), so I request a deletion.
  10. ) etc.

C. 90% of the deleted files have been uploaded by me years ago.
