Adventure

Hi everyone,

sorry I’ve not been around for the past week, but I was off having a wonderful little adventure in the mountains!  More about it soon, I promise!  🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI also had a wonderful new camera with me – luckily one that is waterproof!  But what’s a little bit of rain eh? 🙂

  1. Hooray for you! Adventures are good. I have to ask – what camera do you have now? Mine died, resurrected, died again and now is cripping along. It froze up for a day, and I stopped and picked up a low-end Canon to get me through the rest of my trip. (And thank goodness I did! Wonderful sights.)

    But the time has come to go to work and start saving for a real camera, so I’m interested in what everyone is using.

    • I’ve hummed and haa-ed for about 2 years, looking at the pros and cons on various models and types, and trying to decide what I was most likely to photograph and which suited that. I watched the rise of alternatives to large heavy DSLR’s, and then finally settled on the Olympus OMD-E-M5, with the 12-50mm lens. It’s a fully weatherproof system. I also wanted to learn to shoot with a wide lens, and didn’t want to be lugging a massive piece of equipment when I hiked about the countryside. A viewfinder was also a vital component. Much as I was tempted by some of the Fuji models, it was the weatherproof aspect of the Olympus that was the final clincher.
      Eventually I’d like to add a macro lens….. We’re still getting used to each other, and I’ve much to learn, but I’ve no regrets. Guess you’ll have to wait for the rest of the pics and see what you think 🙂

  2. It looks like you were having some interesting weather along with the adventure. Love the way the top of the mountain is obscured, it makes it look like a volcano. What type of camera, if you don’t mind me asking?

    • Yes, the ‘interesting weather’ meant I didn’t camp as planned, although I still had plenty of fun. I mostly used my new Olympus E-M5, with the 12-50mm lens, making it fully weatherproof. It was because of the rain I didn’t use my Fuji as much, even though it had a much bigger zoom that’s useful for wildlife shots.
