Nice pictures! Top one looks like infrared. What camera/processing/etc.? Would really love a Leica Monochrom but I have other things to pay for...
Thanks! It's a Sony A7R (the older, first version) that's been converted to full spectrum by Kolarivision. These were indeed shot in IR (specifically 680nm). I used to have a Leica iiic, but never a digital Leica M... other things to pay for. Nice cameras, not so nice on the wallet!

The shots look great! Have considered switching to the Sony line but have a bunch of Canon glass... Would like something smaller but by the time I get something configured in my head that would make me happy it is nearly as large. Hahaha. Been looking at Fujis a lot as well and understand they are coming out with a full frame camera? Maybe I should actually GO OUT and use what I have?!?!? :) Will go look for you on Flickr/Instagram.

I finally installed my Anderson Design Fabrication rear window Molle rack and fire extinguisher mount. I’m super excited. ADF makes some awesome products for Subaru’s. I can’t wait to install the passenger side.
That is really cool! Hmmm, something like that might help reclaim space, in an orderly way, between the window and roll bar in my JKU. Thanks for posting!

Their in lies the issue........I have the same issue. Really like to upgrade to the Fuji X-T3...........but since I can't seem to get off my arse to do any shooting why spend the money? The struggle is real!
I think a new lens would help with this issue! Hahahaha. When overlanding I rarely take the time to pull out the good camera and use it; really only do so if I see a phenomenal scene. Rented a Sony RX100 for a trip and used it a lot; could keep it in the front pocket and it initialized quickly enough to get a lot of "quick" shots. Would likely buy one if they offered it in APSC; the 1" sensor just does not do it for me. For stills anyway, video was pretty good for its size. Gets me thinking about slinging the Cotton Carrier over the pax seat, or elsewhere, for easier access??? That would at least help bring this post back onto topic for the thread ;)

Completed my Offroad Gorilla diff breather relocation kit install last night. This is a 30 minute install if you take a 15 nap during the install. Super easy and straight forward. If you are planning on dipping your Frontier in any type of water, this is a must do mod. OffroadGorilla.com

That was my thought when I saw them. Free up some space in the rear gate of my forester. I ordered some pouches for my compressor and air chuck. I’m glad you like them.

Much like "drive with what you've got", "shoot with what you've got"! I'd say camera tech of the last 4 years has more or less plateaued (unless you consider the 645 format Fuji, Leica, and Hassy have pushed as the next step up from full-frame). I like the Sony cameras because they're so easy to use with adapters, some of which do allow autofocus if I recall. My trick is to use tiny manual-focus rangefinder lenses (e.g. Contax, Leica, Canon M39) with the sony bodies - I can literally stuff the whole thing in a coat pocket.

I finally installed my Anderson Design Fabrication rear window Molle rack and fire extinguisher mount. I’m super excited. ADF makes some awesome products for Subaru’s. I can’t wait to install the passenger side.
I really like all the stuff that ADF does for Subarus - just recieved my 2"/2.5" lift kit in the mail, looking forward to installing it!

So had my welder make a mount for my Ram Mount setup for the Frontier. Got it installed yesterday afternoon. I’m digging it so far.
