So, I’ve been visiting family in Florida for the past few days, and while the primary purpose of the trip wasn’t photography, I had a bit of time to shoot. I decided to bring my Fuji kit on this trip, and it performed well, as expected. I thought I’d share a few photos from the trip. I got a chance to take an airboat ride through the Everglades, which was great fun, and I got to get up close and personal with some alligators. Later on, I headed out to the beach for the sunset. It wasn’t a great sunset, but I managed to get a few nice shots anyway. Enjoy!

Just wondering, what lenses does your ‘travel’ fuji kit consist of? It usually takes me forever to decide on a kit, and tend to overthink, size, number of lenses, and other compromises.
Thank you, and enjoy your vacation.
This time, I brought one lens more than I normally would, because it was visiting family. I brought the 14/2.8, 18-55, 55-200, 35/2 and 56/1.2. The 56 normally wouldn’t come in a travel kit, but with family I wanted that as an option.
What camera bag do you use to hold your travel kit including 56/1.2? I am looking for good camera bag that can fit 14/2.8, 23/1.4, 56/1.2 ,18-55 and 55-200 with body.
For this trip, I took my Tenba Messenger Large (which appears to be discontinued right now). It’s an OK bag. There are things I like and things I don’t, but it does fit 5 lenses.
I typically use a Think Tank Suburban disguise 20 for my Fuji kit, which carries accessories, plus the camera and four lenses. I really like that bag.
Nice pics, Jordan!
Why not carry the Sony a7. It is similar in size and weight.
Because I didn’t feel like it. The A7 II (which I own) is only a little heavier than my X-T1, but the whole kit is actually noticeably larger. (It’s 1.8lbs heavier for the 5 lenses I would have brought with the Sony kit vs. the 5 I did bring with the Fuji kit. The Sony is larger too). As I was traveling with my son (and without my wife and daughter), I really didn’t want a heavy camera bag in addition to the others. I very nearly brought my Micro 4/3 kit for that reason.
In any case, the image quality difference is fairly minor all things considered, and I really like my Fuji kit. As I had been shooting with my A7 II for the previous week (for my FE 70-200 review), I wanted to shoot with Fuji for the trip. While I use my A7 II for most dedicated landscape work, I overall prefer the ergonomics and controls of Fuji.
may I ask you which RAW converter you use for the fuji-files?
I used Lightroom for all of these. I do use C1 from time to time for Fuji stuff, though.
