It’s been a while since I’ve done full on camera review. I think camera reviews are some of the hardest reviews to do simply because the only thing that really matters is the final product. Are the pictures good and did the camera capture the scence the way you saw it or better? When looking for a backpacking camera I usually even take in to consideration how good is the camera in comparison to other cameras of similar weight and features.
In a backpacking camera I am looking for a few of these essential aspects:
Picture quality – how good are the pictures and what is “good enough” for the desired trip
Weight – I would never bring a big full frame Nikon or Canon with me as the weight doesn’t justify the end results (in my opinion)
Water proofing – Some waterproofing is usually a good idea as the longer I am out the less I care if my gear gets wet.
usability – This perhaps effects me more than it might others; I come from a background of analog cameras – in face I still use a prefer analog for just about everything. So usability for me is very important, I want a camera to be fun to use.
Battery life – The longer the battery life the less batteries and recharges I need to bring i.e much less weight.
I love panorama pictures! Your simply not experiencing life if it’s not in panorama! These pictures are massive and it’s a shame they are so little here.. To get atleast a somewhat feel for the epic views you really should look at these pictures on the largest screen or screens you have available. Read More
Here is part two from this amazing journey through kingstrail in Northern Sweden. As I stated in the first part of this series, Kingstrail was an absolute treat both for me as an avid hiker, but also as a photographer. Read More
I had a bitch of a time coming up with a name for this.. as the photography itself is not ultralight, just the camera and backpacking gear. Anyway, I think you get the point. Photography is certainly a subject that I am no expert on and something that is always evolving. I have tried everything from oldschool analog cameras such as the Hasselblad X-pan panorama camera, Leica M3, M6, as well as sony’s A7r, iphones, compact cameras and now my personal favourite for the outdoors is the FujiFilm X-T1. A lot of my photography you can find on this site. Read More
Ok, so the titles not that short.. but as I’m combining several things in one I decided to go with it.. Anyway, this is more of a gallery than trip report, as many of you know I don’t really do trip reports. I think pictures are funner. Read More
For those of you that don’t know, I absolutely love street photography. I will have more and more of the series showing up, I just haven’t gotten around to updating my new website too much yet. In any case I took this shot while cruising along santa monica. The guy just standing there perfectly still makes this shot all that more interesting.
This was taken on my Fujifilm X-t1 with the 35mm lens with chrome film setting. No editing.
