Love to hear your stories and travel escapades Collin.

Great series of shots, No 2 is the stand out for me.

Sorry to hear about your E-5 issue, hopefully it can be fixed easily. Bummer about the laptop too, but good job in backing up images. I bet you didn't have any dust problems though.

Was the travel conditions tough or just the shooting conditions?

Love to see more photos and hear more about your trip when you have things organised.

Cheers

Dennis

As to conditions Namibia is a land of stark contrasts.  Its mostly desert or semi desert. It has a tiny population to area ratio. There are only 2 million people in Namibia and its about 4 times larger than the UK.

The conditions are hot and windy like most deserts. The west coast is all desert the eastern side and a bit of the north is bush veld. Shoot conditions are OF as during the day you don't have to worry about shutter speeds as sometimes I was shooting 100IS0 1/8000s and had to stop down. The dust buster thing and the weather sealing really came into its own. The Olympus lenses even the 18-180 came out pristine. The Bigma sucked up half of the desert though. Compared to the cannon users who continually had to clean their kit I felt  pretty smug.

Will post soonest.
