Summit camp.

I’ve realised my camera gear now weighs 1.6kg whereas base walking/camping gear without camera stuff totalled 7.7kg.
Any point and shoot camera suggestions that cost less than Sony RX100 mk6?
Chill dude, it's all peanuts compared to the weight of these slabs...

Haha, I missed a chance to have breakfast on one of those rocks! I did have a cup of coffee in the morning by the trig point though. Don’t tell anyone I pre-grind LSOL!

It’s gas stove John, although it looks very deceptively!

It’s MSR Windburner, which is kind of all-in-one stove with a gas canister, burner, heat exchanger and pot being connected while in use - you can even hang the whole thing with some wire/cord. It’s a trade off between weight and effectiveness in wind, really. The fact I can get a french press kit for it makes it more appealing since it doesn’t take any extra space.

I’ve been drooling over Primus Lite+ lately which is very similar, but slightly lighter, smaller and supposedly less fiddly to use...

If you don't mind fixed lens - grab yourself a X100T/F weighing in at around 450/500g.

Takes a bit of getting used to if your previous kit was DSLR or Mirrorless but is pretty capable.

Kit: Some coffee bashers for the beans and some water heater thingies for the brewing bit.

I hated/loved X100F when I had it. Unfortunately, it only lasted half a year or so before I broke it :(

The menu is unhelpful and fiddly with some bizarre logic between what is available on the dials and having go through a stack of menus to change a simple setting. Also the fixed lens is a pain too which is a revelation when coming from DSLR/Mirrorless kit.

However, when it works - it works extremely well and also with the fixed lens it does make you think on how to frame a shot.

Just away from the main street in Banff Canadaria last August.  Loved the Canadian Rockies, amazing views.

Being in the pop circuit about that time,  I believe she was often in that position.

Nice picture but is that an aluminium drainpipe and what diameter is it, and its wall thickness? just wondering ….

is yours chestnut wood as well?

ours survived 2 winters without any harm. And if you have a look further up, oh boy we had quite a winter, lately!
