I also made some expedition list and packing guide. Its a good way to keep track of things you problaby will need on longer trips. Keep in mind it is in norwegian:

Olympus 45mm Portrait lens (Prime lens)

P1650061.JPG

This is one of my firth lenses, its very good for the prize. Wanted it in black, but hade to order it in silver color. This lens has an aperture f 1.8, and it gives smooths portrait and landscapes pictures with a good depth of field. Its also very good for videoes. The lens gives a bright pictures with good dynamic balanse so its easier to edit in lightroom or photoshop after. Cons is that this is a manual lens, so you need to be carefull for the focus.

This is one of my primes lenses.. You can get it on Amazon quite cheap.

Lumix Leica 25mm lens (Prime lens)

P1650097.JPG

The 25 mm is the most valueable prime lens I have. I have done quite of a deep research finding the ultimate video lens, And this one simply is. It dosent have a stabilizator a little down side. Recently I put on a Gobe UV filter mostly to protect the lens, because I use this lens alot when Im filming outdoors. It has an aperture of f 1.4, so it slips in a lot of light, thats a pro thing with lenses. Best picture quality is to use a variable lens filter, with bright aperture to achive as best smooth motion picture.

This is one of my primes lenses, and you can also get this one at Amazon. You can also read a separate gobe filters review here.

V-log lenses: 7 Artisan 7,5mm Fisheye & Lumix G X  Vario 14-42 mm Power I.O.S.

Both lenses are mostly used for V-logs, or what I normally call A-roll, though the wide angle is mostly for timelapses.. That is where I normally talk to the camera. The Lumix one I got second handed. It is an automatic lens, with a stabilization, zoom and focus switch. Its a good lens because it easy to film with and carry. The picture still quality is very good, though its not the one who gives me the best video results. The 7.5 mm is a cheap fish eye lens, solid build. It gives a quite good picture and where Im quite impress with the wide angle it can give without to much distortion. It also gives great astrophotography do to ss and wide angle combination. Cons is that is a manual lens. There is a separate blog post on it here.

Main Camera: Lumix G9

My family bought the GH3 camera back in 2014. Since then it has been use almost every single month or more for 5 years. The GH3 is not a full-frame DSLR, meaning that cost is dramatically reduced as well as weight and space. Also the batteri life is way better than full frames, and making Micro Thirds Fourth a perfect camera for the outdoors. The Gh3 is a excellent video camera, but it lacks detail in still pictures, and performance in low light scenery. So by 2019 I finally had the time to upgrade to G9, wich is something between the GH5 and the S1. The biggest difference is that it can take 6K & even 80 megapixel High Definition Stills. The camera films in 4k and it has some cool features such as a crazy good stabilization and som High Speed

Footage 180 fps action among other things.

Drone I normally prefer is the Mavic Pro 2 Zoom, i have license for it too. I tried couple of other drones before smaller, and less technological thjan the one now, but the drone gives very good steady recording and have lots of features. I normally use ND filters for some of the G9 lenses and drone too. I have a GoPro and Insta360 cameras as well but i dont use them to much unless im doing some extreme sports or action shots.
