Winter Wonderland: On the go with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark |||
One of the questions we get asked most frequently is, “what camera do you shoot with?” And while we shoot with a few different cameras, the one we are currently smitten with is the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III. There are so many features about this camera that makes it oh so very appealing to us from the get-go, but does it truly have what it takes to take the calibre of images we’re looking for? Read on!

We have very specific needs as a travelling adventure family, so we tend to be pretty hard on our equipment. We need our cameras to be easy to use, relatively lightweight, durable, and produce amazing quality, high-res images. While the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III ticks off all the boxes in terms of being super attractive with its retro look, our first impression was how much we loooove its low profile and lightweight body. We decided to bring it with us on a recent road trip to BC’s interior and really test out if it’s up to our standards.
Now that we have our little Ollie along for the ride, we have to bring extra travel gear, clothes, toys and snacks with us on every trip. The last thing we want to do is lug around a heavy camera. The OM-D E-M5 Mark III is a mere 414 grams, including the battery. Adding a lens adds weight, but not enough to become an issue! We can’t wait to bring this camera on longer hikes or overseas trips as it’s so much more convenient than more bulky units.

Curious about our go-to lens? When we’re capturing content inside a cozy cabin or on a narrow trail, or even up close and personal with a waterfall, we like to have a wide-angle lens that can help to capture more of the scene before us. Our first lens selection was the M.ZUIKO ED 7-14MM F2.8 PRO (14 – 28mm, 35mm equivalent) Wide Angle Rectilinear Zoom Lens.
