OM-1 grip. Beautiful!

The grip for my OM-1 arrived today. It fits beautifully and imho better than the grip for OMD MK iii.
It's expensive but sweet.
Better balance with a longer lens is had and one extra ontap battery is useful.
It has the a complement of buttons that can be programmed. 
Thanks Burlington Camera!

A couple of new sites for wildlife photography

 I found a great Canadian photographer on YouTube. He is Simon D'entremont.

His videos are noteworthy to nature, astrophotography, and landscape photographers.

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCH6acC9jnug-mI4vdGvuDbA

Another site of note is the Journal of Wildlife Photography. Simon has a very worthy course on this site.

OM System RM-WR1 remote

Here is the remote for the OM-1. It's Bluetooth and a quick and easy configuration. I could do it lol.
There is also a cable connection if needed.
The cable is of high quality. I've noticed that the wired remote also works with the Canon R series cameras. It does not have to be turned on to use via cable. The unit did not work with a Bluetooth connection to the R7.
The custom remote allows me to reconfigure the record button on the camera to another item such as focus stacking.
Pricey but pleased!

A great monopod. Benro Subradupra MSDPL46C

Best monopod ever. It can support a big white lens. Has a built in sturdy head. 
There is also a quick adjustment section for those final height settings. Carbon fiber of course. Twist locks in regular leg sections. 
I've been using this piece of kit for a while now without any issues. It really performs well in all situations.
It will also take a small set of legs I got from eBay (also pictured.)

What's not to like?

The end.

Rode videomic mic shock support repair

The rubber shock mounts on my old Rode microphone were deteriorated. 
I found some silicon o-rings in a kit on Amazon to replace the custom Rode ones.
They work great and are silicone to last longer.

ISO 12800 on the r6 m2

I used DXO PureRaw's new support for r6 m2. This changes my options for butterfly photography. ISO 12800, 1/40th second at 500mm handheld. Sweet!
