    Hey guys, I came away from Acadia with some amazing photos and a new love for the Fuji X-T3. I'm ecstatic that I made the switch and I think it'll be a great thing for me moving forward. Rather than write a novel on my thoughts, I put them into a youtube video. I hope this helps a few people out!

    Even though I am not entertaining the idea of a Fuji, I watched the video and thought you did a nice job with it. You showed some beautiful photos at the end. Good selling point for visiting the park.

    Agree the video was well done.

    The park is gorgeous and if you have never been you need to get there.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    I’m planning to finally start working on my YouTube channel regularly. I’m going to be putting together (hopefully) a weekly vlog that follows me on a shoot/adventure (most often landscape work) as well as some tutorials and reviews.

    One of the factors that’s kept me from this is not wanting to lug around a second camera and kit for filming; but I just bought some grip gear for my iPhone including a DJI osmo mobile II gimbal, and I’ll be using my phone to do the majority of the filming.

    This video was shot on my iPhone.

    Great job on the video! You had a lot of information crammed into the video and I need to watch it again. Guessing some of what you talked about would apply to the X-T2?

    I follow an artist on Vimeo that shoots primarily with the Apple and the DJI osmo. His work is amazing and the osmo makes for smooth walking and panning.

    Thanks! I just put up another video today that follows me on a landscape shoot this morning. My goal is to make a video per week to get better at them.

    I’ve never owner an X-T2, so I can’t speak to what specifically applies. The “what you see is what you get” viewfinder and viewfinder playback points definitely apply. But I’d have to do some research to see if the rest of the pros/cons apply to the X-T2.

    I liked the 2nd video too. Adding in the timelapse and the scenery of what you plan on shooting helps orientate the viewer. The human side was a nice touch!
