A few more from the beach. I'm really glad I brought the X-T1, it almost stayed home. It was nice to have a camera I wasn't worried about, I even went out up to my waist a couple of times, though that was a really close call when the waves came in :lol:

X-T1 + 7artisans 55mm

A snow monkey with new born. Approx 120 of these Japanese Macaque's live in a troop at the top of mountain in Jidokudani in Nagano district. They come down in both summer and winter to swim in the hot springs each day in morn and return back up in the afternoon.

couple more.... 1. Gion Kyoto 2. Another Japanese Macaque trying to have a snooze but too wary to close his eyes completely until after I had moved further away(which I did straight after getting shot as I didn't want to stress these guys out ).

The beauty of this place where you can see these wild snow monkeys is that there are very strict rules on bringing any sort of food anywhere near the macaques by people visiting the area. That has had a good effect on the macaques in that people can get close and arnt viewed by these monkeys as a food source thus distracting them from their normal behaviour as they would be in some parts of India and Indonesia. This is good because the monkeys intern mostly ignore people and continue to act exactly the same as if they were on the mountain top (where they live at night. ) well away from any human interaction.

Yeah, my X-T1 is my "beater" camera. It mostly sits on a shelf, or sometimes my 7 year old son is playing around with it, but if I want to take some pics in a less than ideal environment, X-T1 it is!

Is that a cigarette butt? I don't mind folks smoking but hate when they throw butts everywhere. Some of our fires here in CA care caused by those. BTW - We visited BC, Canada 3-4 months ago. It was beautiful. Wish had more time to explore the islands.

Isn't it terrible to see a cigarette butt!!! That was just sitting there and someone probably thought that was funny :(

Our City is quite Beautiful. Many here take it for granted!

For a short city 20-30 minute drive I couldn't believe this hidden gem. Lived here all my life and just discovered it with my family now! Drive up the mountain and here the hatchery sits!!

Basically the hatchery captures wild salmon (as they return for spawning) and helps "nature" by adding wild juveniles back into the wild. If this never occurred the ratio of returning salmon would wither.

I noticed you have 3 different systems listed in your signature. Have you taken the time to learn all 3 systems as best to your abilities? I think that would drive me crazy having so many choices. I would hate to see the camera bag you lug around :eek:. I pick one system and learn the ins and outs, and can fully exploit a system's potential. Back when I had my Canon 5D Mark II, I even spent a few years with just a single lens (50L) to see what I could accomplish with such limited resources.

I've been shooting Canon for over a decade now so I can blindly control the buttons without looking at them. I am quite use to the functionality of my Canon gear.

I've been navigating Fuji quite well. I've put effort in learning it's threshold in what it can and cannot do vs my other gear. I know I can put more effort still. Fuji render is quite different to Canon and Sony.

Sony is quite new to me as the A7iii is still almost impossible to find on the shelf locally. So many people are looking to find this current model. I've customized Sony's buttons so it's very intuitive now and it took very little effort to navigate. First Sony interchangeable body for me and it was easy to pickup. I had SEVERE issues with Sony colour science and I'm just starting to resolve most of the "preferences" I have by using the Xrite passport as a colour calibration system. At this moment there are alot of forest fires going on so my recent images I've taken have had difficult white balance due to the grey smoke filled skies and orange sun on top of green evergreen shadows in the parks I've been going to with the kids.

My Sony experience is skewed as I'm only using 1 E mount Sigma lens and the rest is adapted Canon glass. Some cases Fuji is still more responsive than the adapted canon glass on my Sony. I don't expect the world from adapted glass as far as AF is concerned.

I will be honest and say it's been quite difficult to decide what to use when it comes to gear. I must analyze the environment and I "try" to select the best for the situation. When it comes to 85mm range I love taking photos of human subjects with the Fuji with 56mm f/1.2. I will sometimes use the Canon with 85Lmk2. For 24mm range I haven't touched my Fuji 16mm f/1.4 in a long time as the Sony A7iii with Sigma 24mm ART f/1.4 has been extremely amazing for me especially for automotive photos.

If Canon impresses me with a decent FF mirrorless I'll be buying that too. I enjoy the differences in Camera brands that have different ways of rendering. Fuji 16mm images do have a different flavor to my Canon with 24Lmk2 or Sony with E mount Sigma 24mm art.

I do blindly grab and use Canon for hired events photography with remote flash work. I'm using my Sony and Fuji as secondary fun/travel camera.

I'm grateful for my wife never ever complaining about my gear acquisition. I guess it's better than drag racing at the track risking hitting a wall at 109MPH in my street car 1965 VW beetle!!!
