    The cover of this month's Outside magazine features adventure/surf photographer Scott Soens. I can't determine what make/model of rangefinder-style camera he's holding in the cover shot. Anyone able to identify it?

    The heck with that, I'm curious about Drugs On Everest. That sounds like a really bad idea . . .

    I've never been higher than I was on Everest.

    X-Pan panoramic camera shoots 35mm film in standard format or Panoramic.

    We can see why the Fuji "X" series digitals are so popular amongst some users :smile:

    That's the Fuji version of the XPan, the TX1. The XPan is the only film camera I regret selling. I had all three lenses as well. Loaded up with a roll of Velvia rated at ISO 40 it was five and a half stops of heaven. If they made a digital version at say $10-15K I wouldn't hesitate for a second. And all of the Fujinon lenses were absolutely stunning. They remind me very much of the Summarit range for the Leica M except with an image circle nearly three times as large.

    Every film/landscape buff should be on the lookout for one of these.
