    I think you literally can't go wrong with the Fuji GA645Zi as a vacation camera. I brought back some of my favorite photos ever on a recent trip back home to KY -- all taken with the Fuji. It's super-convenient, super-packable and no-worries. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Eastern Kentucky sure is beautiful, isn't it? On the way back home from Detroit a few years ago, I made my way through western WV and eastern KY on smaller roads before dropping down to Nashville to stay with a friend. (I generally avoid the Interstate system, as it is far less desirable to me when traveling by car; IMHO it's not the most interesting way to see the country, in general.) I stayed overnight in Breaks Interstate Park, on the KY/VA border, and your pictures remind me of it. Gorgeous part of the world! I definitely want to go back. There are all sorts of beautiful "hollers" to explore in the region.

    It is indeed a beautiful state. I had to move away to truly appreciate it. Of course, I live in CO now, so I'm not exactly suffering . Your drive sounds amazing. I lived near Nashville for a while and it was very pretty, too.

    Of all the many MF cameras I've ever used, the one that always gets packed when I'm travelling is the Fuji GA645Zi and a load of 220 film. I also bought the GA flash unit to give me more punch than the in-built one can muster. It's all so light, you can forget you're carrying it. I have both the champagne and black versions of the Fuji - the black comes out when I need to avoid attention as it looks like 'any other brick-like camera' but the standard finish does get you noticed. Have to say, it's a great ice-breaker as people get very curious about it.

    Lightweight? Then go for a GA645Zi. Used it this summer in Romania and it was a joy to use. The only drawback is that the largest aperture isn't 2.8 as on my Mamiya 645 but 4.5 or something. Not much of a problem unless you really want to get blurry backgrounds. It really is a medium format point-and-shoot. Simplicity itself. Compared to the Mamiya carrying the Fuji over the shoulder is something one does.
