Weight and Stuff Report – 13 August 2016

Down again today, good stuff. Though it is probably more random wossnameness.

I took myself to Tynemouth today as I wanted to get some shots of some apparently abandoned cargo ships with my long lens. More on that in another post, with rather more photos in it.

This is Souter Lighthouse, which apparently I don’t need to actually visit because I can see it through my 100-400mm lens with the 2x teleconverter. A quick check with a mapping site tells me that the distance from camera to lighthouse was almost exactly four miles. I’ll say that again: this was taken from four miles away, which accounts for any haziness. Oh and that’s a moderately heavy lens with no tripod or anything of that kind, so a big shout out for Fujifilm’s quite impressive image stabilisation technology.
