Martin.au: Wow. I took a Thinktank Perception Pro (2.9lbs/1.3kg), an M4/3 E-M1 and five lenses (average weight 400 grams), a 15" Macbook pro, an iPad, and a few accessories overseas recently. Even with that comparatively lightweight kit I hit 8.5kg. I can't imagine what this bag with a full load would weigh.

Errr no. The full load of this bag (as I specified) is a hell of a lot more than what my little backpack carries. No way would you buy this bag to put a handful of M4/3 gear in.

And, obviously 12.17kg is well over the airline carry-on limit.

Using the fully load example in their article, of a 400+gripped DSLR + other stuff suggests that that bag fully loaded may come in at around:

4.9kg - bag
2x0.8kg - 2x5D IV
3.85kg - 400 f2.8
0.4kg - grip
0.76kg - 70-200 f4
0.8kg - 24-70 f2.8
2kg - Macbook
0.5kg - iPad
2.2kg - Accessories (same as my bits and pieces, laptop charger, etc)

For a weight of around 17 kg.

Looks similar in design to their Perception backpacks, which are actually an exceptionally useful design.

The main advantage behind this style of pack is that you can fill them up with camera gear for some events, and then change out camera gear for other stuff when the situation calls for it. eg: If you are photographing stuff in more remote conditions, then you may take a camera and a couple of lenses, and stuff a waterproof jacket, food and water in the lower part of the case. The pouches just squish down (or in this case be removed) to gain back the space needed for other stuff.

Obviously, if you just want a big padded case to carry your camera gear then this isn't the bag for you.

villagranvicent: Looks pretty similar to the film set they use to film the moon landing.

But the earth is flat, just ask a surveyor. :D

SnappyUK: Question: Orienting the picture so the right front wheel is in the centre of the shot, move the viewpoint up a little to look at the repeating pattern of indentations - that look like wheel tracks - which do not have the same tread pattern as the rover. Weird!
Any thoughts as to what (realistically) may have caused them? Because I can't see any tracks from the rover on the terrain in any case.

They do have the same tread as the rover. Remember that in most cases at least two and probably three sets of wheels have driven over the same ground, and it's unlikely they'll be in the exact same tracks (I think the middle wheels have a wider wheelbase).

Either that, or it could be this pattern you see.

Lehik: Nice lens. There seems to be quite a lot of easily noticeable moiré in the heron picture. Was it so that the OM-D E-M1 does not have an AA-filter?

I'd blame the heron too. It doesn't have an internet account and can't talk back. :D

Agree though. Bird feathers are tricky.

Qaxl: The architect of Aqua Tower exceeds age limit. I wonder if the host knows a building that matches his criteria!?

That's a good point. In fact, regardless of gender, I doubt there'd be too many architects younger than 40 designing skyscrapers.

Looks really nice.

No entries? Surely someone lives in Chicago.

30 seconds base exposure, with the sensor exposed continuously for 30 minutes. So 60 odd "shots".

Petrogel, it's had a fairly strong shadow push in post.
