Being an Olympus employee now, I was stationed full time at the Olympus booth for the Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2013, specifically in charge of a section dedicated to the new OM-D E-M1 only. It was an exceptionally exhuasting day, having to explain again and again the advantages and amazing capabilities of the E-M1 to the visitors to our booth, but the whole day felt incredibly fulfilling. It was great meeting the photography crowd, some who do know me through my blog. It actually took bits and pieces of my exhaustion off whenever someone said hi to me!
Being stuck at one place also meant I did not have a chance to roam around and explore the entire exhibition hall. I foresee things will get a lot more hectic on the remaining days, with expected higher volume of crowd visiting as well as our Olympus booth having a lot more activities happening over the weekend. We will have a Shoot-Out Challenge with Full Frame camera users. I shall not go into detail about this Shoot-Out Challenge, but I sure it will be something worth blogging about next.
I think I did not expect the crowd coming to see the OM-D E-M1 to be so huge. We have relatively lower attendance to the KLPF on the whole today, mainly because the afternoon is occupied by Muslim Prayers, and the day itself is still a working weekday. Hence we are expecting even larger crowd on Saturday, and gosh, I sure hope I can survive the sea of people flowing in.
With whatever small opportunities that I have had, I whipped out my trusty E-M5 and snapped some shots.
All images were taken with Olympus DSLR E-5
If you happen to be in KLPF this weekend, do come to our Olympus booth. We have the "Shoot-Out Challenge with Full frame cameras"
