    XH-1 Users?

    All handheld, except the last one which was using a tripod and ND filter. I like the 16-55mm, although it is heavy, it works well with the X-H1 and IBIS IMO.

    I purchased mine not long after they came out. I used it mostly on our recent trip to the UK and it never missed a beat. Here are a few snaps from the trip using the 16-55mm lens. The reason I got the battery grip was to get the additional batteries cheap. I took both the X-H1 and X-T2 along in case there were any mishaps along the way. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6

    Another X-H1 user here. I find it great for all types of photography, particularly enjoy IBIS with handheld low shutter speed shots. I'm not into video so cannot comment on that side of it, although mine did come with the battery grip, it is not something I use.

    A few of the places we came across with thatched roofs. The ones we went in had quite an unpleasant odour if they had no ceiling. The ones with a ceiling were fine. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6

    Yes, two bodies. One with a wide zoom, and the other with mid range zoom attached. No additional cards, I downloaded the files each evening onto two portable HDD’s. After which I would format the cards, and charge the batteries in readiness for the next day. They are all just happysnaps so we have a good pictorial of the places we visited.

    The Shambles, York. We both thoroughly enjoyed our trip through the UK and Ireland. 4,000 km's of driving, and 8,000+ images. I have some processing ahead of me Looking forward to heading back at some stage. A few places we'll revisit and spend more time exploring, and have others on our to visit list. #1 #2

    Its great to see native orchids starting to show. Hopefully we're in for a bumper year? According to the latest update my Arsenal unit should be getting dispatched within a week. I'm looking forward to trying it out. Likewise I was so impressed with how IBIS worked while we were on holiday, but not so impressed with Fuji's focus stacking implementation. I've just purchased another camera for macro work and hope to put it through its paces this weekend. Hopefully Arsenal will put the icing on the cake. BTW these were taken using a Nikon 60mm macro, I generally use a much longer focal length for native orchids, but have enjoyed using it for fungi, especially ghost fungi. EDIT: I have also noticed a number of photographers moving across to Sony, I sure hope if and when Nikon release a mirrorless body, they keep pricing in perspective. #1Mosquito Orchid #2 Nodding Greenhood #3 Trim Greenhood

    It's a beautiful cathedral @KenTripp. One of the things I enjoyed using IBIS was being able to take images inside buildings without using a tripod. #1 St Albans Cathedral #2

    Our final day sightseeing in England. We have both really enjoyed our trip around the UK and Ireland. Driving has been interesting, I've found most of the drivers courteous, and indicators appear to be an unused accessory on a lot of vehicles. I've taken so many photos it's going to take me quite a while to work my way through them all. I did bring a tripod with me, but only used it a few times. I was either too tired after driving and sightseeing each day to go out at night, or I used IBIS where possible. Mind you I haven't checked out the images as yet, so some of those using IBIS maynot be too flash Here are a few phone pics from our last day... #1 On our way to Bath we saw some boulders in a field - Stonehenge #2 Royal Crescent - Bath #3 Pulteney Bridge - Bath

    I just realised this auto correction text is changing words on the fly. I need to read a post properly before posting We visited both Stirling, and Doune castles today, and have had a couple of pints in the local. Also photographed the gold post box. It was painted gold to celebrate Andy Murray's Gold Medal win in the London 2012 Olympic Games.
