COMMENT

I always relied on a heavy DSLR system to photograph my expeditions. However, its weight usually forced me to reduce the whole system to a single lens camera once I was away from the Base Camp. Fortunately, I switched to Fujifilm X-system, which proved to be much lighter and extremely reliable. No matter whether I am climbing a 7500-meter peak with temperatures plunging down to -30 Celsius or accidentally plunge my camera in icy waters on a polar expedition, I can be sure that I will bring excellent pictures of my adventurers back home!
