A quick heads up, I’m going to Antarctica with the National Science Foundation for 2 months beginning mid-October. It’s relevant here because I’m taking Sony A7 & A7r bodies and FE lenses with me, and it will be interesting to see how they perform in an extreme environment. I have confidence in the system after using it pretty extensively in the very cold weather we had last winter, and it has advantages in both size and weight, which are critical because of tight NSF and Air Force baggage policies. I’ll be posting here as the trip progresses with equipment updates.
I’ll also be posting regularly to the project blog located at www.popantarctica.wordpress.com.
I'm also running a fund raiser for the project, the Antarctic Artists and Writers Program provides flights and room & board in Antarctica, but part of the financial burden of the program lands on the artist, so I'm running a kickstarter fundraiser to cover rising expenses. Please check it out if you have the means, rewards for your support include print(s), book(s), and also Fuji instax prints mailed directly from Antarctica.
Thanks for your support, and follow along with the project on the blog.
