    I posted a question in another thread about going caving. I ended up taking the E-M5 with Pana 14mm and FL-600R in a Domke F-5xb. It went well and the caverns were awesome. We got filthy and the Domke needs a good cleaning, but the camera did great. Below are some shots.

    And the view from on top of the mountain.

    Great shots - the colors are awesome. I'd be nervous taking most cameras into that environment but with thee weather sealing this is the perfect camera. :cool:

    Especially like the first one.

    When I took my cameras into caves I did manual weather sealing - plastic bags and sealed ammo boxes to carry them. :D

    Thanks. I carried the E-M5 and p14mm with the fl-600r attached in my rugged wear smoke. The camera was covered in a very fine sand dust. The domke was a mess and I had to scrub it down with soap and water. Put it in the oven to dry it out...

    All the camera stuff was blown off, wiped down and cleaned. Lots of work but worth it.

    Just a hobbyist.
