Capturing Canada 150 #FujiSummerFun With The Fujifilm FinePix XP120

Posted by

Canadian Blog House is participating in the Fujifilm FinePix XP120 campaign managed by SJ Consulting. We received compensation in exchange for our participation in this campaign. The opinions on this blog are our own.

Canada’s 150th birthday is a big deal to me. You may have noticed that if you’ve been following my Canada 150 posts for the last few months.

Not only is it a special birthday for our country, 2017 is a special year for me as it’s the year I turn 50. I was a Centennial baby, so I came into this world the year Canada was having its last big birthday bash.

Special occasions, like Canada 150, help to create special memories. Whether you are capturing those special memories in photos, or on video, there’s no better way to capture them than with a phenomenal camera like the Fujifilm FinePix XP120.

This past weekend, we kicked off our own #Canada150 summer celebrations with an all-day road trip through scenic south-western Quebec. This gorgeous area of “La Belle Province”, in the Outaouais region, is made for a great Canadian road trip!

With stunning vistas around every curve in the road, it was a picture-perfect location to put our new Fujifilm FinePix XP120 to the test!

Our drive took us through such beautiful scenery. From rolling pastures filled with cows, sheep, and horses, to rocky outcrops, tree-covered mountains, lush river valleys, and quaint small towns. We saw it all during our 12-hour road trip.

As with any great road trip though, it was not without a few bumps in the road.

In my case, I prefer to call those bumps, pot holes. But more on that later.

Our Quebec road trip took us from Ottawa, northwest to Fort Coulonge, northeast to Danford Lake, south to Wakefield, and finally, south to Gatineau Provincial Park.

Western Quebec Road Trip FujiFilm FinePix XP120

I had never been north of Luskville on the 148. Our first destination, Chutes Coulonge Park, in Fort Coulonge, was a place we had been wanting to visit for quite a while now. We were headed there to seek out the magnificent waterfalls and canyon we had so often heard about. I was certain I was going to capture some stellar photos at Fort Coulonge on our new FujiFilm FinePix XP120!

Unfortunately, the army of black flies that invaded every inch of our exposed skin and scalp, had other plans for us. We would not be entering Chutes Coulonge Park this time, thanks to these tiny black beasts! We had only walked 50 feet before we retreated back to our vehicle.

The fact that I had forgotten to pack the bug repellent was really a moot point. No amount of bug repellent would have helped us that day. Those tiny black beasts were voracious!

On to our next stop…the Paugan Dam, in Low, Quebec.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

The Paugan Dam is a road trip stop that you can easily miss if you blink as you pass the sign on Highway 105.

As I looked out over the dam reservoir, it was time to get out my Fujifilm FinePix XP120. With the blue lake, blue sky, and rolling green hills, this scenery was made for taking photos.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

I had not had the chance to play around much with our new camera before hitting the road, so I took many of my photos, like the ones above, with the Scene Recognition shooting mode (which helps to select optimum camera settings for you).

Paugan Dam Reservoir Quebec Fiji FinePix XP120

Wanting to get a better look at that cute little building, out in the middle of the lake on the tiny island, I used the digital zoom lens to get up close and personal, and the resulting photo is spectacular. So clear and crisp, I love how the island appears to “pop” out of the lake.

Paugan Dam Quebec

As beautiful as the reservoir was, nothing would prepare me for the sight we were about to witness – the fury of the Paugan Dam!

I quickly switched to the Landscape shooting mode to capture our first photo of the rushing waters (above).

We were so in awe of the power of the Paugan Dam, we just had to share a video with you.

Watch as I walk over the Paugan Dam using the video recording mode for the first time…from a dizzying height!

The scenery, and the power of the water, was just so mesmerizing.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

The Motion Panorama 360 shooting mode was made for scenery like this…don’t you agree?

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

I love the following shot, as it reminds me of the roar of the water you hear from the top of the Paugan Dam.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

See and hear it for yourself!

I could have stood on the top of the Paugan Dam for hours. It was one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

Visiting the Paugan Dam gave us a whole new respect for the power of fast-moving water. What amazed us the most is, despite the incredible amount of water you see rushing from the dam, the gates of the dam were not open wide. Just imagine if they were.

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

Paugan Dam Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

You can drive across the Paugan Dam in your vehicle. The dam is used by residents and visitors as a crossing point to get from one side of the Gatineau River to the other.

It is for this reason that, while enjoying the view from the Paugan Dam, you must always keep your eyes peeled for vehicles. Visitors can quickly duck into the small openings off to the side to allow for vehicles to pass.

During our visit, the Sûreté du Québec stopped by while on patrol, rolled down their window, smiled, and asked us if we were planning to jump off the dam and into the water.

Not a chance, officer!

We all chuckled, they waved, and went on their way.

We said goodbye to the Paugan Dam and headed on down the 105…to the beautiful town of Wakefield, Quebec, located on the Gatineau River.

Gatineau River Wakefield Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

A stop in Wakefield isn’t complete without a visit to the wooden covered bridge that crosses the Gatineau River. While it isn’t the original bridge (that one was destroyed by fire in 1984), it’s a beautiful structure, and a walk over this covered bridge is a must.

Wooden Bridge Wakefield Quebec Fuji FinePix XP120

During our visit to the Wakefield bridge, we spotted this gentleman on a paddle board, paddling his way along the calm waters of the Gatineau River.

Gatineau River Wakefield Quebec Fujifilm FinePix XP120

But wait…look what’s on the other side of the covered bridge…rapids!

Oh oh! Someone’s going down!

Time to hit record on the Fujifilm FinePix XP120!

There were endless vistas of beautiful farm land along our route.

Doesn’t this view just make you want to go explore what’s up around the bend of this country driveway?

Country Farm Road Western Quebec Fujifilm FinePix XP120

It was back to Scene Recognition mode for this beautiful scene…

Farm Fence Western Quebec Fujifilm FinePix XP120

The sun was starting to slowly set in the west, so back in the truck we jumped and headed south towards our final stop – Gatineau Provincial Park.

Champlain Lookout Gatineau Provincial Park Fujifilm FinePix XP120

What better way to end a great Canadian road trip than with a view like this one!

Time for the Motion Panorama 360 shooting mode again…

Gatineau Provincial Park Fujifilm FinePix XP120 Panorama

Although there was a haze over the Ottawa Valley that evening (and not just from atmospheric conditions – those pesky black flies were out in full force again!), this was the perfect spot to test out the digital zoom. Simply amazing!

Ottawa Valley Gatineau Provincial Park Fujifilm FinePix XP120

Can you see the City of Ottawa WAY over there in the distance? Those little white specks on the horizon are buildings!

Champlain Lookout Fujifilm FinePix XP120

Here are those same white buildings…using the digital zoom!

Ottawa Valley Fujifilm FinePix XP120

After 12 hours, and with the sun setting quickly over the Gatineau hills, our great Canadian road trip was over.

But my fun with the Fujifilm FinePix XP120 wasn’t.

Out to the backyard I went…to test out the Flower shooting mode.

Pine Cones Fujifilm FinePix XP120

Look at the detail in the pine cone and needles. Can you see the drops of sap?

Hens and Chicks Plants Fujifilm FinePix XP120

And last, but not least, I tested out the Cinemagraph mode. I am still in need of practice with this shooting mode but…you get the picture!

What a fantastic Canada 150 road trip that was! Full of special memories, all captured with our new Fujifilm FinePix XP120.

Well, all captured…but not all saved.

As I alluded to at the beginning of this article, this road trip was not without its “pot holes”.

After taking DOZENS of photos and videos on this road trip, it was around 5:15pm when I shot one last video. A video which I decided I did not want to keep.

And so…I did something I NEVER do. I decided to delete this video on the spot.

Except…I deleted EVERY photo and video I had just taken that day.


I had erased ALL THE (Paugan) DAM PHOTOS – literally! 

I thought I was going to cry. The look of horror on my partner’s face was priceless.

Too bad I didn’t capture it with the Fujifilm FinePix XP120!

As I sat distraught in the passenger seat, head in hands, in shock, and ready to burst into tears, my partner jumped into action.

We still had a few hours of daylight left so, he turned the truck around…and headed back up the 105 to both the Paugan Dam, and the Wakefield Covered Bridge!

He saved the day. Now that’s what I call love.

The moral of this story? Don’t click on “all frames” thinking you are simply deleting all frames of one video. Deleting “all frames” deletes every single photo and video from your camera! I’m used to deleting “files” and not “frames”. Doh!

Fujifilm FinePix XP120

Speaking of love…here’s a recap of what features we LOVED on our new Fujifilm FinePix XP120:

  • Shooting Modes – SO many versatile shooting modes – our faves included Cinemagraph mode, Interval Shooting mode (time-lapse), and the Advanced Filter mode.
  • Size – The XP120 is a powerhouse of a camera – all built into a compact, easy-to-handle case.
  • LCD Monitor – The Large 3-inch 920K-dot LCD monitor makes for easy viewing of the scene you are photographing.
  • Waterproof/Shockproof/Dustproof/Freezeproof – This is a camera you can take ANYWHERE! For someone like me who can be a little rough on her gadgets, this is a terrific feature.
  • WiFi – With the Fujifilm App you can easily share your photos from your XP120 to your smartphone so that you can instantly share with friends and family via email or social media.
  • Ease Of Use – This camera is super easy to use. Even while viewing photos and videos on the phone, a quick push of a button puts it right back into photo-ready mode, ready for your next shot!
  • Colour – We love our “Blue” XP120, however, this camera comes in 4 fab colours.
  • The Fuji Name – The folks at Fujifilm have been around a long time. I’ve used Fuji products since I was a kid. Fujifilm is a long-time manufacturer of top quality photography equipment.

Now here’s the super exciting part for YOU!

    I used to live in Flesherton and if I won this camera I would go back there for the Fall Studio Tour. The colours are fabulous and so are all the studios taking part. Some of the studios are bakeries or have an artisan from a bakery or preserve making which means there is no need to go hungry. There are painters in different media, photographers, jewellery makers, leather workers, quilters, clothes makers and so many more.
