Om-D in the Desolation Wilderness (California)
Jun 20, 2012

I find the OM-D with the 12-50 lens to be an ideal camera and lens for backpacking and hiking. I am preparing for the Mt. Whitney section of the John Muir trail so this was a good training hike. I also found the Olympus 12/f2 to be a good camera for evening/morning low light conditions.

I have been backpacking on and off since 1967 when I got an Exacta camera, later a Nikromat, and the several Olympus film cameras.

Not only have cameras gotten better and lighter (OM-D), but the backpacking gear has gotten much lighter as well. I used to carry about 50 lbs., now about half that weight. At three times the age (now 63), hiking with photo gear has never been better. Hope you enjoy the photos. Jeff Hart
