The following video presents OM-D E-M1 Mark III | Wildlife Photography with Donal Boyd:
Wildlife and nature react spontaneously, with great agility, and often the most interesting moments occur when the conditions are harshest. The rugged terrain, intense sun, relentless dust, and thick and thorny vegetation of Africa can easily overwhelm even the most experienced travelers who might instead focus on fiddling with their camera only to quickly realize the moment they were hoping to capture has passed. To overcome these challenges, Olympus Visionary Donal Boyd took his new OM-D E-M1 Mark III on his trip to the African bush. Follow him trekking through prickly shrubs, crouching down in the dust and sand, and remaining silent and still as to not disturb the incredible encounters as they unfold before his lens. Amidst all this, there is one thing he could always rely on: his camera.
