The past few weeks have been crazy. There was a week spent at the beach for vacation, followed immediately with a 5 day business trip and within hours of being at home from that, a camping trip to finish off the weekend. Needless to say, updating the site has been a low priority. Here are a few shots for now though.
When I wrote the post outlining my thoughts on the E-M5, I made a big deal about how configurable the camera is. I just wanted to show how I have mine set up in case it helps anyone with theirs.
Early this morning I grabbed the camera gear and made the drive over to Ohiopyle state park for another of my half day hikes. I was packing the E-M5 with a 12-50mm, 45-200m, 14mm, 20mm and 45mm. For some extra light I brought along my newly acquired FL-300R and to block light I had an ND filter and a circular polarizer. All of this went into the Domke F-5XB. My Benro Travel Angel tripod went into it’s own bag slung over my shoulder. Why am I telling you all about the gear I packed you ask? Simply because I only used a single lens, the 12-50mm kit zoom. Put the pitchforks away, I wanted to put it through its paces and see what it was capable of. The primes were for backup and the long telephoto was in case I saw some animals. I learned a bit about this setup and definitely will make some changes next time I head out. For now though, here are some pictures!
