    I was in North Myrtle Beach when Irma hit. This is the point when I started testing out the weather sealing on the Pro2/16-55/50-140 as shown in the thread Fuji gear is tough. The waves were getting stronger, as was the wind. Loose sand was blowing up from the beach. Then the rain came in.

    I was happy with what I was able to get. If I ever get another opportunity like this, I'll definitely bring a fillable bag for extra weight on the tripod.
