First images from West Papua on True North

Here are the first images shot with the Olympus OM-D on the True North in West Papua.

It is a beautiful little bay surrounded with little beehive islands and the colours in the water are to die for!

So far very impressed with the versatility of the OM-D and also how steady the camera is in video mode with the stabilisation system.

It has been a hectic day so far with a 0430 start getting the sunrise then, a steep climb up to the perspective you see, then off for our first dive. A cruise around for an afternoon shoot then a heli shoot at sunset will top the day off!

The new underwater housing is working vey well as well but more on that as time permits.
