Cameras

Fujifilm X-Pro3

This is my favorite camera I've ever owned. I love rangefinder style cameras, and I expect that this will be my "gateway drug" into a Leica M series someday. Either way, I'll have this one forever.

Fujifilm X-T4

I sold my X-T3 and bought the X-T4 basically because of IBIS. Having 5-6 stop image stabilization felt like a worthwhile improvement.

Fujifilm X-T3 Sold

I picked up this camera with landscape photography in mind. Weather resistance and the small form factor for hiking was (is) very appealing.

Fujifilm Instax Mini EVO

This camera is a brilliant mix of the digital and physical photography experience, the printing feature is wildly useful!

Fujifilm X100V

I bet 70% of my all-time favorite photos were taken with my old X100T. It was my favorite camera for years and years. Any quirks with the X100T were fixed by the X100V.

This is the camera that snapped me out of my photography hiatus. I don't think I used anything other than the X100T for 4-5 years. I still love everything about it.

Bags

Case Logic Viso Slim

This is the bag I use most of the time. Oddly enough, it was a random purchase, but has grown to be maybe the best little camera bag I've owned.

Lowepro Protactic 450 AW II

I chose the 450 over the 350 mainly because it can house a 15" laptop. This is my travel bag and primarily where I keep all of my gear. It's a tank.

Lowepro Slingshot Edge 250 AW

When I set out to take pictures, I like having a smaller sling bag that holds my camera and a couple of lenses and filters. I love the slim design of this one.
