Fuji X-M1 Camera — Junk in the Trunk

Fuji's mirrorless camera takes beautiful pictures at an appealing price

I’ve had the chance to shoot with a couple of these cameras including, most recently, Fuji’s X-M1. It sits a couple steps below the company’s premier mirrorless cameras, like their X-T1, and therefore lacks some important features, like a traditional eye-level viewfinder. But what it lacks in features, it makes up for in image quality.

Big Wave Skiing

Why surf when you can ski?

And on the second day, God made wave skiing. Wait, what? Is this a real thing? Kind of. While we’ve seen it before, it seems to be taken to another level here with the whole speed suit, goggles, and helmet as the costume de rigeur, not to mention a melodramatic soundtrack fitting for an episode of “24″. Willy Bogner shows us how it’s—apparently—done, but we have to ask, are you really accomplishing anything there by pushing with those poles, bud?

The Odds Are Good: Getting into Canada

Or not getting in, as the case may be

Enough minutes ticked by that we started to joke about what could be going wrong (maybe she went for a Tim Hortons run?) and one of the guys in the car mentioned—oh by the way—that he’d actually run in to some trouble with the Canadian government before. Some kind of weed-related incident in high school. And then the other guy dropped that he had a sticky charge on his record, too. Something to do with illegal explosives in Utah. “Yeah,” he said. “I think it’s maybe technically a felony.” Maybe? Technically? “I can usually get out of the country,” he said. “Canada is tough sometimes.”
