PETER BAUMGARTEN’S POWERFUL WORK

TAKES YOU PLACES EVEN WHILE YOU’RE SITTING STILL
Head shot of Peter Baumgarten
The best landscape photography doesn’t just capture natural beauty. It transports you. No one does this better than Peter Baumgarten. After all, he lives on an island in Ontario, Canada, surrounded by awe-inspiring scenery. Peter specializes in seeing and experiencing nature in ways most people miss. His landscape and wildlife photography has been published many times over, and he’s spent decades as a dedicated teacher leading photography lectures and workshops. Peter loves wilderness camping, canoeing and kayaking. Through it all, he’s never without his Olympus camera.

READY FOR ANY WEATHER

Bad weather can sneak up on you. But with E-M1 Series cameras, you’re ready. They’re splashproof, dustproof and freezeproof (down to 14°F/ -10°C). No protective gear necessary. Focus on nailing the best possible landscape shot instead of worrying about your camera.

COMPACT WITH SUPERB IMAGE QUALITY

No one wants to hike to a landscape photo location hauling heavy gear. Let Olympus lighten your load. Our lightweight mirrorless OM-D system delivers image quality that equals or exceeds DSLR systems. Get freedom of movement to shoot with more creativity.

NEUTRAL DENSITY. NO FILTER.

Create dreamy, moody landscapes without carrying ND Filters. The E-M1 Series previews slow shutter effects in the viewfinder before shooting. Live ND Mode eliminates swapping ND filters for each shooting scene or lens. Choose from 5 ND levels starting from 1EV to 5EV.

SUPER HIGH RES, ALL HANDHELD

Tripods are a drag to haul around. The E-M1 Series lets you leave it at home. Take sharp, spectacularly detailed 50MP images, and all you have to do is hold the camera. Handheld High Res Shot Mode works by automatically taking 16 shots and merging them into a single 50MP image. Perfect for anyone looking to travel light.

FRONT-TO-BACK SHARPNESS

Focus stacking is an ideal feature for landscape photography when you’re using an ultra-wide angle lens or have a subject in both the foreground and background. With in-camera Focus Stacking, the camera automatically captures several shots with varying focal points and then merges them to form a single super-sharp image.

PRECISE AUTOFOCUSING

It helps to have pinpoint accurate autofocus for photographing landscapes. The OM-D E-M1 Series’ DUAL FAST AF features 121 points of Phase Detection plus Contrast Detection AF that blanket the image sensor. Each point is cross-type for superior detection of horizontal and vertical lines, delivering superior accuracy.

TECHNOLOGY HAS REPLACED THE TRIPOD

With Olympus’ in-camera image stabilization, you’ll capture crisp super-telephoto landscape shots - all handheld, no tripod needed. You’ll even get bright and clear low-light stills and smooth handheld 4K video. Our industry-leading system provides up to 7.5 shutter speed stops of compensation.
