I have become fascinated by the mobility and advanced technology of Olympus equipment over my years of traveling to Alaska and shooting in the field in Japan. Because I trek across fields and mountains with a tent on my back, reducing the amount of equipment I carry is essential to achieving greater mobility.
I often make large prints at exhibitions that are over a meter in size, and find myself wishing for better image quality and focal precision. For me, the OM-D E-M1 Mark III is the perfect camera. It is lightweight and small, capable of capturing 50 million pixel shots despite being a mirrorless model, and has the latest features such as Starry Sky AF.
I would also add that it functions down to -30°C almost exactly as it does at normal temperatures. My travels to capture photos of untouched natural environments and the creatures that are there have only just begun. I look forward to my next expedition with my E-M1 Mark III.
