Dripo Cold-Drip Coffee Maker Review

Perhaps it is the long and cold winters or the long hours I spend at work,  but I have become a coffee addict since moving to Wyoming. I also subscribe to the philosophy that I do not want to drink hot beverages on hot days. This has led me on a quest to find an inexpensive way to produce iced coffee. Thankfully the team at goshi introduced me to their new Dripo cold-drip coffee maker.

Review: FujiFilm XF35mm F2 R WR

By Beau Johnston

In September 2015, I rented the FujiFilm X-T1 and the XF35mm F1.4 R lens to take to my sister's wedding. I rented this setup because I had grown tired of dragging my pro-body Nikon cameras and associated lenses on family trips. The setup was just becoming too bulky and too much of a hassle to travel with. The images the FujiFilm setup produced were beautiful, and I loved how compact everything was.

Flash forward to fall 2016 when I found myself gearing up for a series of trips for the magazine and vacation. I debated dragging my D700, 24-70mm, and 70-200mm lenses on trips to Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Oregon. I found myself looking back to the little FujiFilm X-T1, looking for used copies online. I eventually pulled the trigger and contacted FujiFilm to see about borrowing the new XF35mm F2 R WR to take along on these trips.

Review: Lever Gear | Toolcard

Money clip for minimalist travelersI have been on a minimalist kick for the last year. I finally admitted to myself that I tend to travel with too much stuff. Take my wallet for example, I recently went through it and found receipts from six months ago, an expired national park pass, and some cash I didn't think I had. As such, I was excited to work with Lever Gear and test the new Toolcard on some of my recent trips.

  • Weight:1.3 ounces (w/ clip)
