Red face A last munro for my E1

While out for a play in the snow and ice yesterday I realized that this will probably be the last munro I do with my E1, I should get my E3 next week. It was kind of a sad moment, we have been through a lot together the E1 and I including 4 coast to coast walks across the Scottish Highlands, a winter ascent of the highest mountain in North Africa and every walk I have done over the past 4 years. We have been through rain, hail and snow. It has been dropped, soaked and frozen without ever letting me down, my previous non Olympus camera had to be thrown out due to water damage after 18 months. When my E3 arrives the E1 will be relegated to my backup body but to my mind this camera has become a classic.

Re: A last munro for my E1

Is that stitched or a wide crop?

My E-1 has been as far as Japan and the US West coast and all over Europe, in all sorts of humid and damp as well as hot and dry conditions. I've never ever seen a spec of dust spoiling my shots either.

I did drop the camera early on, with an old FL-40 flash on top. The flash lost its foot, but the camera was fine.

That is a quality shot, I've heard snow is really difficult to shot.

It's a 3 shot stitch. The camera was hand held and the stitch was done in photoshop. I once thought I had a dust mark in the sky but when I enlarged it in photoshop it turned out to be a bird.

If you know how it's no problem. For these shots I took a reading from the sunlit ground below the snow line. If you can't do that I find over exposing by about 1.5 stops is about right.
