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!
