lil bit of a dump here

went for a bit of a drive. I don't really think any of these photos are particularly good but eh maybe the countryside is a bit different to what you're used to so might be interesting nonetheless

oh; i do in fact climb around on them, that's why i asked. yours are tall enough i'd skip any of the parts with technical climbing, avalanche risk etc. i climb the less serious / dangerous ones, although i've climbed all over in new england. it's good exercise, nice views. plus you might spot a tahr up there

interesting. word on the street is that nz is very good for outdoors because we have a lot of state run huts all over the place, at least a lot compared
to australia. but who knows how it compares to the north america

tbh the biggest way that nz scenery tends to be different to north american isnít like that ours is better or whatever but just there is a huge variety in a very small set of islands.

it amazed me when we drove thru the us where youíd have like a kind of scenery but itíd last for hours and hours rather than changing up every 20
minutes (except where I live the canterbury plains which is the most boring part of nz by a mile)

not to be smug, but, buy a better phone. it'll solve every problem you have here for less money than anything that's not a modern phone

I used to have an x-t2 and it was the perfect size for an interchangeable lens camera. I upgraded to the x-t4 and itís quite a bit chunkier. i kinda wish I didnít because I upgraded for non image quality reasons and now I just have a slightly bigger and heavier version

the funniest difference is that the x-t2 proudly had ďmade in japanĒ printed on the bottom, but the x-t4 has ďmade in chinaĒ hidden inside the battery compartment

im not a camera person but i did dabble with DSLRs etc and tbh having a phone with a good camera is probably your best bet. unless you are wanting some special shots (e.g. long exposure) or shots of animals, in which case you'll probably need a big ol lense and/or tripods and the works.


that said you can get special clips and harnesses that make it somewhat less annoying, i use something like this https://www.rei.com/product/132089/peak-design-capture-30-camera-clip though it still kind of pulls annoyingly at one side or another. i would probably try a vest or something with one of those chest mounts, its probably the most comfortable (tho i haven't actually used one)

something like this maybe? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1345430-REG/cotton_carrier_686grey_ccs_g3_camera_harness.html

what specifically bugs you about your phone? do you want it to be better at low light, longer lens, wider lens, faster shutter speed...?

the right camera recommendation depends on what you wanna do with it

i have a fuji xt30 and a 18-55mm lens that fits in a bag i clip onto my hiking pack. itís needs suiting and ko (small)

i tried the capture clip and agree that it annoyingly pulls on one side. it can be balanced with a water bottle on the opposite strap, however. i didnít like having my camera that high, blocking my view, or that exposed to dust/water
