he Internet always tells me that the panchromatic films and sensors use to have a higher dynamic range than their RGB-counterparts, so I caught something dynamic with my E-500 panchromat. To me it looks like my camera is not quite up to that task, but at least I've spent extra $$ for it do do so ;).
We just encountered the first (almost-)hurricane for this year just yesterday, so I took out my camera on the lunch break to get some shots. I went to the beach and got fairly sandblasted. Unfortunately it was low tide so the sea didn't look that rough, but only half an hour later the first big trees were uprooted... Since we had to live with intermittent power outages the rest of the day I could have made some more shots, but my boss didn't want to let me go (as if I could've got something done in the workshop while there's no power). Interestingly enough I ended up with sand in almost every gap of the camera body, which even made it behind the display glass (!), but the weathersealed 14-54 survived pretty well. This would surely have killed 99% of all compact cameras with telescoping lenses, though.
