New Gear for Remote Camping & Photography Trip



In this photography and gear video I talk about some of the gear I have on my video and landscape photography adventure to Iceland. I have various cameras from a Fuji x-t4 to a Hasselblad 501cm film camera and accessories. I am camping on this trip so I also go over some new camping gear for 2020.

    Couple of flaws , bad autofocus and bad auto sound …… hmmm that's an understatement, you really are an optimist i must say ๐Ÿ˜‚
    The bad autoficus is been going on in your latest video's, also not so good light metering, maybe an user error

    I have the X30 and looking at getting an X50 or X70, is the X70 small enough for cabins? Also do you think 70 is ott and could easily do 1-2 day camp with x50? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thomas, could you make a cameo of Bilbo Baggins ? It would be much appreciated !

    Donโ€™t be mad, just a joke, love your content, subscribe! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿค™

    Hey you didnโ€™t mentioned about your transport vehicle donโ€™t you think itโ€™s part of your projects …?

    So, lemme see if I understand; the camera dedicated to video doesn't focus correctly or record sound well.

    Are the flaws of X-T4 fixed by latest firmware upgrade, arenโ€™t they? However, I did something very strange and purchased a Olympus E-M1 Mark 3 (I do a lot of macro, the XF80 is awesome, but a big clunky heavy beast in comparison to the M.Zuiko 60mm 2.8 macro, which also delivers an awesome image quality). Now I am questioning myself, why I didnโ€™t do it earlier. Except for tracking AF it is the system doing all that what Fuji also does plus that what I am missing. It clearly demonstrates, that all inventions you find today in Fujiโ€™s, Sonyโ€™s etc. cameras have been invented by Olympus. Itโ€™s such a pity they discontinued and outsourced the camera business. 7 stops IBIS, 7.5 stops in conjunction with M.Zuiko lenses having optical stabilisation. It has a tripod (up to 80 megapixel) and handheld (up to 50 Mpixel) HighRes mode (pixel shift), those modes also delivers clean and noiseless images even at ISO 6400 (max on that MFT system). And, and, and… However, nothing beats the H.265 mode of Fuji or Eterna in H.264 – except for Blackmagicdesign BMPCC4K (MFT also) and the Blackmagic raw format (you may edit this footage in DaVinci like still raw files in Capture One or so).

    Hi Tom, I see you're using the Shimodo bag a bit nowadays and wondering what your thoughts are compared to using the Osprey exos. I imagine it's heavier and may be less suited for longer hikes?

    Its always amusing to see young photographers going "back" to film, having come from film to digital myself 6 years ago. I must say though, it would be money better spent to shoot 4×5 field camera than medium format. Coming into digital from film was a learning curve, but much of what I did printing in the darkroom transfers well to Lightroom and Photoshop. It seems most who try to go the reversed path, seem to have difficulty getting film right. Exposure is the biggest stumbling block it seems.

    Is video from the X-T4 noticeably better than that from the X-T3? Do they have the same sensor and pretty much the same video capabilities?

    How did you get all the film through airport security X-ray machine safely, especially on your way home before the film gets processed?

    Hi Thomas, most of your photos are on a tripod,+ long exposure time.
    why not have never tried Sigma Foveon sensors
    for landscape photography?

    In case you didnโ€™t already know, when photographing a rainbow you should use a polarizer. It will bring out an amazing amount of vibrance in the colors that the camera (or your eyes for that matter) donโ€™t see without a polarizer. I discovered that when I was getting pictures of an amazing looking rainbow that turned out flat and washed out in the camera. It looked so good to me because I was wearing polarized sunglasses.

    Hi Thomas , great Iceland videos – just watched the other one on the ridge. So is the R6 off the table now that you got the XT-4 Just curious. Thanks. Been in Iceland but did not have time to visit the highlands. Next time perhaps. Stay safe.

    My 26L Mindshift Backlight bag was technically too big for hand luggage on United Airlines last year!! I have the 50L Action X bag and wouldn't have even thought of trying to take it as a cabin bag….until now lol! Oh I agree about the Shimoda pouch. i have one for various bits and pieces and love it.

    Funny. I just bought a Garmin Inreach. PLBs are fine but you cannot interact with rescuer giving information like how you are, what your problem is, which is your state and so on. Plus, battery is not rechargeable so every now and then you have to send it in to get a new battery. But, I surely agree these devices, also the ones subscription-based, for whoever find himself wandering around alone, are a priceless peace of mind. And happy you finally switched to Fuji, I feel it ๐Ÿ™‚

    What I would like to see is a real behind the scenes of how you guys create your YouTube vlogs. A full step by step guide as to how you do it – showing how you plan the video, setting up the camera, editing the footage – particularly when you are alone.. I try to do them but it is painful setting up the camera, run back down the road, walk past, come back to get the camera, etc.. Is that truly the way you guys do them?

    Of course it makes the wind loud – thatโ€™s it doing itโ€™s job correctly. If you tell it to auto gain then when itโ€™s quite and wind is the only noise it will boost the levels.
