I am going to the Great Bear Rain Forest in British Columbia Next month
Grizzly Bear expedition https://www.eagleeyeadventures.com/grizzly-bear-expedition-to-toba-inlet/
Has any one been there recently ?

I am bringing my trusty EM5 Mk II with my P/L 100-400 lens for wild life
and Olympus 12-40 for scenery along with my EM 10 Mk I as a back up camera with 2 32 g memory cards and 3 batteries for a 1 day trip
I hate changing a lens in the open so I may attach the 12-40 on my EM 10 and take 2 cameras with me.

any advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi, The E-M10 isn't weather sealed... take a big ziplock or something to protect it if it gets rainy.

Will you be hiking or driving or boating?

Thank you for the reply Barry
How about all 3 of the above :laugh:

A boat picks us up in Campbell River and takes us to Toba Inlet 1 1/2 hr boat ride ( Covered small Boat seats 12 )
A small bus takes us from Toba Inlet to very close to the Grizzly's.
Than a short hike to the Grizzly's area

A couple of years ago when we flew in a float plane from Vancouver to Saltspring Island, the person that unloaded the plane dropped my son's backpack into the salt water. Fortunately I was able to grab it before it sank. So I'd recommend putting your gear into a dry bag or something similar for the portions of the trip where you're not photographing anything. The 2-camera idea is a good one.
