The picture at left is why I love the micro four-thirds format so much. What you see is all I need for a week of backpacking in Colorado. The whole setup probably weighs less than 7 lbs, including tripod. I’m confident that what you see here will allow me to capture everything I want while in the backcountry, and I won’t kill my back lugging heavy equipment. This also gives me room for those little nice-to-have extras like a tent and sleeping bag. I just put all of this stuff in the Crumpler Haven bag and stuff it in my backpack. I strap the tripod to the outside of the pack.
I’ll be on the road with limited access for the next week or so, but hopefully I’ll have something to show for it on the blog when I return.
