There are some subjects that I could keep photographing forever and never feel bored. My favorite might be the abstract patterns of sand dunes – small in size compared to a grand landscape, but no less striking. To me, finding hidden compositions in the desert is like searching for buried treasure.
When I started out in photography, I found myself frustrated with the kit lenses for my Nikon D5100 DSLR. I kept getting blurry pictures with both lenses, especially the 55-300mm DX telephoto.

Fujifilm just announced perhaps its most anticipated camera of the year, the 40-megapixel X-H2. With 20 FPS stills, 8K video, and subject-detection autofocus, the Fuji X-H2 aims to be a serious APS-C alternative to cameras like the Nikon Z9 and Sony A1 — but for $2000 instead of $5500+.
