Chris Eyre Walker on Lenin Peak (7134m) in Kyrgyzstan with his E-M1II


Chris Eyre Walker just sent me this:

I recently spent 3 weeks on assignment for Olympus AU attempting to summit Lenin Peak (7134m) in Kyrgyzstan. My goal: find out if the E-M1 Mark II would perform at high altitude and in extreme weather conditions and if it would make for a suitable expedition camera to extreme environments.

Part I:
Part II:

(entirely filmed on the E-M1 Mark II and with the 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO)
Also here the in depth Blog Article and my new Lightroom Preset Pack based of the shots of this expedition.

Olympus OM D E M10 II Vs Mark III

ePhotozine posted their full review of the just announced new Olympus E-M10III. They think it delivers great image quality, 4K video, and an impressively small package. This is their Pros and Cons list:

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Pros
4K video recording
Excellent colour reproduction
Good noise performance
5-axis image stabilisation
3inch tilting touch-screen
High resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Improved dials and larger grip
Huge range of Micro Four Thirds lenses
Dual-axis electronic level
MicroUSB connection

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Cons
Reduced number of customisable buttons
Plastic camera body (compared to metal on Mark II)
Wireless flash control removed (was on Mark II)
Feels like a downgrade from the Mark II in some areas
Occasional shutter shock (can be avoided with anti-shock)
