NC Trip Day One

We’ve been planning this trip for years, now. I literally mean years. Sarah and I started dating five years ago, and we eventually wanted to go to North Carolina for our honeymoon. Well, this year, as we celebrate our 3rd anniversary, we’ve finally made it our little cabin in the woods.

After our 9 hour drive, we made it, and immediately slept in until about noon today. Once we got moving about we laced up our hiking boots and headed for Roaring Fork Falls.

It was a nice little hike that we both enjoyed, and definitely got us ready for the rest of the adventures that are ahead of us for the next few days. From a photo gear standpoint, I’m glad I brought the Fujifilm X-T2 along. With its compact and light weight body and incredible image quality, it’s the best camera I’ve ever had on a hike.

Apparently, people do these on the YouTube.

I am SUPER excited to start shooting with this camera. So stay tuned for how things go! Being in Florida, it’ll probably rain all weekend, so I’ll at least be able to test out the weatherproofing.

Also, it can be noted that I tested out the older NP-W126 (the one that comes with the camera is the NP-W126S) battery with the X-T2, since I have a bunch of those for the X-T10. I noticed no issues with regular shooting, although from what I can guess, I wouldn’t want to attempt recording video with the old batteries, since they would probably overheat.

Anyhow, let me know what you think in the comments!
