Those crystal clear waters, beautiful sandy beaches and palm trees. Yes, the typical classic “tropical” shot. And Noumea delivered.
I didn’t really want to lug my big camera bag and filters with me through the tropics (with the heat and the humidity leading to one very very sweaty Marty), so I bought myself a @canonaustralia G7X mk II as a little walk-around camera. Yeah, I missed my filters (even a polariser would be nice), but was just so light and free to move around with - and still delivered some really decent RAW files, and all superbly packed in my little @thinktankphoto Mirrorless Mover 30 (even though it's not mirrorless, but my bag doesn't judge, so it's all good). Even though I wasn’t prepared for swimming, the shoes came off and went for a beautiful splash along the beach. Can’t you just jump right in?
