Our go to camera system for capturing our global ocean cleaning operations is the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. Together with its robust dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof construction, this compact camera system goes where DSLR cameras can’t. The E-M1 Mark II is also excellent for video production being able to record in the digital cinema standard for 4K. Combined with the Olympus Pro lenses which are also dust, splash, freezeproof we rely on long-term operation in every kind of marine environment. We find even with the super-telephoto M.Zuiko Digital PRO lens attached, the E-M1 Mark II is more compact and lightweight than conventional 35mm-equivalent cameras to provide easy hand-held shooting with more freedom.

For our drone work we use the Mavic 2 which is DJI's flagship consumer drone built for pros and enthusiasts. The Mavic 2 Pro offers a Hasselblad camera with a 1-inch sensor, while the Mavic 2 Zoom has a 1/2.3-inch 12 MP sensor with two-times optical zoom. Both offer 31 minutes of flight, 8 km transmission, and omnidirectional obstacle sensing.
