As I had previously written in my post Inside My Camera Bag I’m in the process of changing my gear when I travel to a lighter and smaller setup. A couple of weeks ago I headed out to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for a short vacation. This was another chance to test my “traveling lite” strategy and refine it for my next trip. I packed my FujiFilm X100S, XPro-1 along with the new 56mm f/1.2 and 10-22mm f/4 both by FujiFilm. At the last minute I ended up throwing in a couple of PocketWizards and a 580 EXII Speedlite in case I wanted to shoot some portraits (of course I never used them).
In spite of adding a few last minute extras that weren’t used, the camera and lens combination worked out amazingly well. Having the 56mm attached to the XPro-1 most of the time combined with the 23mm on the X100S provided me with a broad range of shooting options so the majority of the time that was my setup.
