I am just back from a three-week trip from Vietnam and Bhutan, and although I’ve traveled with only Fuji X cameras in the past, this was the first time I totally relied on them for a long journey. Tired of carrying gear when traveling I was on the lookout for a compact camera that could travel well. I was happy to carry my Nikons on trips, but there were instances when I didn’t want to go out with them. There were particular places in big cities that were unsafe, or when just going out for dinner after a day of shooting on a remote location, being exhausted, I didn’t want to be out again carrying equipment. I was basically going on photo trips yet leaving the camera in my hotel room at times. I tried a couple of point-and-shoot cameras that I could have with me at all times, but I was not happy with the results. Looking for better options, I started to do some research on micro 4/3 and mirrorless cameras, and that’s when I came across the Fuji X system and decided to give it a try…..
