There are a lot of situations that lend themselves to the use of a small, light and yet very capable camera. Perhaps none more so than hiking up a mountain.
Hiking is an activity I really enjoy and throughout my childhood in California and Montana, as well as my early adulthood in Colorado, I have spent the majority of my life surrounded by mountains, though I didn’t pick up hiking until my late teens.
Then, when I was 30-yrs old, I moved to North Carolina – the flat part. No mountains for several hours. In fact, I live approximately 262 feet above sea level. Which meant that as much as I love hiking, the elevation in Glacier National Park was a bit of a challenge for me.
So, the decision on what gear to bring was easy and I selected the X70. It did not disappoint, my friends. This highly capability and super tiny discontinued piece of Fujifilm magic made no physical impact on my hike up the mountain but still allowed me to capture the beauty and splendor of the mountains without compromise.
