THE GREAT OLYM­PUS SCAV­ENGER HUNT

We took six read­ers to the Royal Bath & West Show to try out the Olym­pus OM-D E-M1 Mark II over a se­ries of 12 chal­lenges. Chris George went to see how they got on…

More and more pho­tog­ra­phers are think­ing of switch­ing to a mir­ror­less cam­era – ei­ther aban­don­ing the SLR sys­tems they have used for years, or adding a new CSC as their se­cond cam­era. With smaller body sizes, faster frame rates, bet­ter video fea­tures and more, there are plenty of ad­van­tages to switch­ing to mir­ror­less. But it is still a big leap for any en­thu­si­ast or pro to make to change their cam­era sys­tem... So we teamed up with Olym­pus to give six DSLRown­ing read­ers the chance to spend a full day try­ing out the pro­fes­sional-stan­dard Olym­pus OM-D E-M1 Mark II for them­selves, so they could see what us­ing a top mir­ror­less model is re­ally like.

To make it more interesting, we in­vited our pho­tog­ra­phers to take part in a se­ries of 12 chal­lenges in our Scav­enger Hunt. In the bus­tle and colour of a coun­try show, our read­ers had to find a dozen im­ages that best matched the themes we had set for them – with less than six hours to get their pic­tures back to editor-in-chief Chris George for judg­ing. On hand was the Olym­pus sup­port team, with a big roller bag full of M.ZUIKO Pro lenses to pick from. Let the hunt be­gin!
