“A good photograph is knowing where to stand” – Ansel Adams
I’m no Ansel Adams but I live in hope.
My name is Ian I am an enthusiastic photographer that likes to travel.
This blog is about my journey from the world of “Full Fat” DSLR photography to a lighter, fresher format – micro four thirds (m43). In early 2018 I decided to sell all my Canon DSLR camera equipment that I had collected over many years, as I was increasingly finding it difficult to travel it with due to the weight and bulk.
I initially purchased a Panasonic Lumix G9 and later an Olympus OM-D EM1 mk II. I have gradually acquired a wide assortment of lens both Panasonic/Leica and Olympus and now have focal lengths ranging from a 7.5mm fisheye through to my favourite lens my Olympus M Zuiko 300m f/4 Pro.
I have not regretted this decision for one minute. I am perfectly happy with the image quality from my Lumix and Olympus cameras, love the lighter weight, the electronic viewfinders and the utterly magical image stabilisation.
Follow along with my “journey” – it may just be something you should consider – your back and bank balance will thank you for it.
In the past I have captured images with my Canon gear like these in the UK:
These in Tanzania:
And these in Finland:
