Fatty fatty 4×4: Why GVWR matters

We’ve all seen the bad example, the SUV with heavy bumpers front and rear and a full compliment of sliders and armor. Then there’s the extensive drawer system in the back, a loaded fridge and dual batteries under the hood. To top it off, literally, the heavy roof rack shoulders 200 pounds of fuel, water, and an assortment of Pelican cases that even empty weigh a ton.

Adventure Photographer: Fujifilm X-T1, 18-55mm XF Zoom

Travel and photography are inextricably intertwined. For many of us, we travel almost explicitly to capture the experience through a lens. Finding the right camera setup for the job however, is not as easy as it would seem. A good travel camera must be compact, but full featured. It needs to be highly versatile and adept at everything from landscapes to portraiture. Ideally, it should be able to suffer assaults from weather and hard use, and oh yes, it would… read more »
