Hohoho… Christmas is close and I decided to give myself two presents.

After changing my camera gear to the Micro Four Thirds system I had one great travel lens. But I wanted something for just taking with me on a walk, not the full 24-120 mm spectrum.

On the net I found some review about the Olympus 17 mm lens – which is 34 mm i full frame. Not a real wide angle but close to what the human I sees. Olympus had a cashback campaign giving me about 20 % back of the retail price. Now it is mine and it is a very nice lens. My equipment is now complete – no need for more. Check out the lens on the Olympus homepage. (LINK)

The other thing I bought – and it is waiting for me at home in Germany – is a new gimbal-camera combination. After I have to send back the Feiyu G5 because of motor noise on all videos. :/ Getting a full refund from Amazon I looked for something else. DJI had just launched the new DJI Osmo pocket. A small 4K 60fps camera that is not bigger than a smart phone and fits into your pocket. Perfect for me traveling and trying to reduce my luggage (especially hand luggage, this weighs only 116 gram) and filming for my YouTube channel or just for my own use. And it will be so much less “in the face filming” as it was with the huge gimbal. So I pay a little bit on top, but get something really great (I hope^^). (LINK)

Hope to put more photos and videos out there in the future.
