Last friday I hiked with a group of friends up to Wenkchemna Pass. Wenkchemna Pass is up the Larch Trail from Moraine Lake. It is about 6.5 km to the Eiffel Lake (450m) and 2.5 km to the Pass (another 250m).
The larch were almost at their peak. Next weekend will be peak.
The day was spectacular. I was trying out my EOS-M with 11-22, 18-55 and 22m as a hiking camera. I brought my tripod and the combination was very light.
I am still undecided on the EOS-M. It is way lighter and you can easily hang it around your neck and so you take more pictures.
But the negatives are:
1) The amount of sharpening you can do and the resolution is less than the 5diii
2) The AEB bracketing resets when ever the power goes off
3) The remote shutter only works with infared so you have to point it in front of the camera on 2 second release
4) The battery does not last as long because you are using liveview and less inclined to turn off because the AEB times out and goes off.
Here are my best from the day.
