Hi all,

I'm new to this site, but I've written up my thoughts (after two years of use) about the Olympus OM-D E-M1 mirrorless camera for adventure photography. I've used the camera mainly on human-powered adventures, and I can confidently say that it definitely fits my needs for a 'fast-and-light' camera system, when the balance between image quality and weight of gear is paramount.

About me: I am a Guinness World Record holder (longest journey by skateboard - 12,159km/7,555 miles) and previously cycled and skateboarded around the world for 2.5 years (www.14degrees.org). I am an enthusiast photographer who loves to capture the essence of what it means to push one's body and mind to the limit when stepping outside of one's comfort zone. I currently live in Hokkaido, Japan.

I would love to hear what other systems people are using for human powered adventures!
