    Hi everyone,

    Last year I used nothing but my Nikon V1 to explore Alberta A Chance Encounter | Western Alberta

    This year I used my X Pro with basically two lenses (18-55 and a nikon 105/4 macro).

    A Chance Encounter | Washington State

    Which do I like better - BOTH

    But for pure enjoyment taking pictures - I like the Fuji much better. That being said if I need to do wildlife or fast moving grandkids, the V1 reigns supreme.

    It's telling that I haven't shot my D700 in over a year.

    I appreciate comments and suggestions :)

    Thanks!

    Not too far from Philly
    you should be able to figure it out...
    Very nice work! Kind of my old stomping ground - I went to school in Olympia and lived for years in and around Seattle and did a bit of camping and exploring on the Peninsula. I really like the shots out at Ruby Beach with the sea stacks. Many a cold night camping out there. And some amazingly wet nights camping in the Hoh Rain Forest just inland from there. Beautiful country though.

    Me too, no comparison in my mind - probably unfair of me to make a value statement against the XP1 - Alberta is a tad more target rich :)

    The beaches are amazing - I wish we would have had more than 1 sunset during the 7 days. The rest of the time we had heavy cloud banks.

    We had a nice house rented in MoClips on the beach - a nice relaxing trip with a few photo ops tossed in :)
