The Great Jonas Blizzard of 2016


Recommended Posts


I published another video to YouTube where I used the X-T1 and 16-55mm lens. All footage was shot handheld at 60fps @1920x1080p. Shots were then set to playback at 30fps (slow-mo) and then rendered at 1920x1080 24fps. No color correction or alterations to the video were made in post. All footage was captured using the Negative Hi color profile in camera.


What I'm really satisfied with is how the camera performed in less than ideal conditions. And I can tell you, it was less than ideal lol. One pro tip I will leave you with is in regards to safety. Vehicles don't make noise on snow. So when you are focused on your LCD or viewfinder and the wind is whipping, make sure you have 360° awareness so that you don't get run over.


This footage shows all my strengths and weaknesses as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the camera but hopefully you are still able to feel something from watching. ;)

Cool. Did you use any kind of waterproof cover? What stands out is no water droplets getting on the lens with all the blowing snow.

Thanks. All I did was try to place myself facing away from the wind. I also had a towel and blower to dry off the front of the lens. The frustrating part was when snow would get into the viewfinder which would deactivate the LCD so I simply went to LCD ONLY. Other than that, I put my faith in Fuji's weather sealing.
