Very cool video, thanks for sharing. What camera were you guys using to shoot the video with? Those hammocks look like they are awesome too.

Gunga Din haha!
Gene I switched 14 years ago to hammocking on the trail....so much better than rock/root. Often we 'stealth' camp going severely off
trail to 'dissapear' and find ourselves on really steep side hills--but the hammock is always level.
With the set ups we used on this hike we were good to -5F....nothing could save us from the wind though, it was so loud and the constant
tempest toss and I go no sleep, first time that's happened after a long climb in years, just never camped in wind that bad.

Do you ever have trouble with bears in the summer months

Funny about the bears. I've hiked on the Appalachian Trail for 30+ years and have encountered them actually on the trail
backpacking only twice. One was really close, large 350-400 pound male, in pouring rain. He turned and ran-I froze :)
Many hikers I meet have seen far more....I'm just not so lucky.
I have seen them in the driveway at the cabin up in the woods, usually coming to the lake for water in the hot part of summer
for water.
On the trail, hiking/cycle-camping/or paddle camping we're usually smart to bear-bag our food. Bears are infinitely less worry than
rednecks ;)
We have sought them out for photography in Great Smoky Mtns. Nat.Park=easy to find at the right time of year, just look for hickory
trees-they love the nuts :)

Sorry Gene, missed the question.
Our preferred camera for making vids while hiking/paddling/cycle-camping is the
Sony TX30.
We have tried many but the TX30 is perfect for the type of vid's we make in those circumstances.
It is sleek=sliding in and out of a pocket quickly. The lens side has a metal face place that slides
down revealing the lens and turning on the camera=lens protected and can operate with gloves on.
It's waterproof-Poof swam with turtles on Easter Island with it, so not just swimming there were good
sized waves hitting us.
And they're cheap :)
I used to have the TX20 but wore it out post 150 youtubes.

Thanks for the info on the camera you used, it looks like it's very useful. Here in the Southwest, I'm not sure how useful the hammocks would be since trees can be few and far between. :-)

Man are we off topic or what :)
I've hung hammocks throughout the desert southwest.
In states like Utah, Arizona, New Mexico if you go high enough
there are plenty of trees. In many places in Cali too....couple of
places through me a loop-Death Valley was one...but if I'd planned
ahead and took some of the climbing gear, specifically chocks and wedges
there were enough canyon walls close enough to find a crack.
Hey, I've even hung between a telephone pole and guy-wire :)
Another place we hung successfully is Alaska, even in Katmai Nat. Park
and you know what's all over that place.
Only area where there was no way was in the Kaktovik area....that would
have been a death wish.

Umm I need to pay attention better. Took the new FE55 out. Love it love the feel love the sharpness then.... WAIT... WTH is up with the CA.. oh my gosh my vintage manuals are not near as bad and Lightroom is adjusting on import and on some of my pics I still couldnt get rid of it.... very sad about this

That caused me to take a look at my shots. Realized I've never done any daylight shooting with the 55.

Ill try to post some examples tonight... to be fair I was at the botanical gardens shooting cactus and other small petal things in bright mid day sun. From reading it appears that the A7rII does not play nice with CA on the FE55. I had never heard that before. Mostly wide open had some instances at F4.

I am more sensitive to looking for CA because I went to an Arizona Highways (basically a photog mag of Arizona) how to get noticed seminar and the editor said.... first thing i do is bring up a photo on my huge ass screen and trust me CA is the most noticeable and rejectable feature I see

Lens is still amazingly sharp though

Posted about this earlier but a bit more info:

So i was in need of a new camera bag (i mean is there never a need?) Picked up both Peak Designs new bag as well as Tenba's Cooper 13 Slim. After having both side by side the Tenbas quality won out. I feel like its a more well thought out concept. Peak Design has the best insert separators i have seen ever. I hope they sell them individually so i can add them to the Cooper. The cooper slim is great for a large mirrorless camera and 2-3 lenses. Holds my A7R with Sigma 35 1.4 and metabones adapter attached, Sony FE 55 1.8 and Sony FE 13-35 F/4 OSS with no problem.

Great parts are a top zipper which allows quick access to the inside of the bag, the side pockets which can zip open to carry a water bottle, 13 inch lap and ipad holders, as well as quiet Velcro (you basically pull down on the Velcro first then pull away. Nice and quiet). Bag also comes with a water proof shell cover which can be reversed for repelling heat in the summer.

I've been following this thread for the last two months. I think you guys have convinced me to join the party soon.. Can't wait to see for myself what this camera is all about.

Don't forget u can get a adapter for the fuji to go on the Sony. I have the same 12 mm f2 for my em5 and I use it on the Sony with a 12$ adapter.i also have a 85 mm f 1.4 for em5 mount I use on the Sony and it's awesome. I love using 2 cams with one lens makes me feel like I am saving...... so then I can justify another focal length hshaߘ
