University of Idaho Arboretum and Paradise Creek Brewery Trailside Taproom

Walking the U of I’s Arboretum has become a part of our trips to the Palouse. It’s easy to navigate for my mother, the scenery is nice, and it’s mostly peaceful (except for the lawn mowers and geese). Most of the shots of this last week were taken with an X100V and my iPhone (see ...

4th of July Vacation in Pullman / Moscow With the Fuji X100V

Covid is effectively over in Washington State (everyone is ignoring the Delta variant in the news), most people are vaccinated, and the mask mandate has been lifted. We stayed at my mother’s home for the first time in two years, and had a wonderful week visiting with friends and family. It was very hot this ...

Owens Beach and Point Defiance Dahlia and Rose Garden

Just Anya and me going for a Sunday walk on the beach at low tide, checking out the blooming dahlias and roses nearby at Point Defiance, and then getting some burgers at Pick Quick. The Fuji X100V did great for an outing like this, lightweight, fun, plenty of manual controls, and good for macro distances ...

Idlers Rest Nature Preserve on Moscow Mountain

This was a short 1+ mile hike on Moscow Mountain, but it was perfect for my 8 year old and 80 year old mother to accompany me on. It’s a nice drive out on the Palouse and a fun way to spend a few hours.

Purple Haze Lavender Farm

On the way back home from the coast, we stopped by the Purple Haze Lavender Farm in Sequim. It’s a lovely place and you are free to roam around with your camera. My big camera was packed up securely in the back, but I had my Fuji X100V out. This little camera does great, and ...

Hoh National Rain Forest

After lugging around a full frame beast and tripod all morning, for this outing, I only used the Fuji X100V. One advantage this camera has over my full frame gear, is a built in flash that can fire at very high shutter speeds. That little flash pops just enough light onto people to really help ...

Ruby Beach

This beach was so much fun! Easily the highlight of the vacation. The scenery was incredible! The tide was going out, so we were able to see some sea life up close as well! Normally, I don’t use filters on the lens as they technically degrade image quality. However, when it comes to water and ...

First Outing with the Fuji X100V at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden

My car is 17 years old, but I bought the Fuji X100V – you know, priorities. I’ve never quite been happy with the Fuji 23mm f/2 WR lens. It’s way too soft at f/2 when used up close. The 23mm f/1.4 costs a million dollars. I don’t trust third party no name brands – i.e. ...

How Weather Sealed Is Your Camera and Lens Really? Preparing your Fujifilm Fuji X100V for the Rain?
