Sébastian left his home in Oslo Norway, and equipped with only a backpack and his cameras (a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Voightlander ultron 40mm f2 and Canon Ef 28mm lenses, and a GoPro Hero 2 actioncam), hitchhiked for 10.000 Kilometers, changing 112 cars, trucks and scooters in total, and snapping pics as he went in and out of vehicles and countries. He now plans on settling in Beirut for a while, learning the language, and do some photo-journalistic work. He also mulls making a video and a book about his amazing journey through Europe and the Middle East. Check out some amazing pics and stories from his adventure on his blog.

Edit: I derped the distance metric, it should be "Kilometers' not 'Miles' as was originally written.
2012 has been an exciting year for photographers. The onslaught of new products was unprecedented, as well as the rapid advancement of several segments and technologies.
No longer the stuff of rumors, here's the E-M5 straight from the horse's mouth:
Photo taken in August of 1943. The location is Northern Australia, and it depicts a ring tailed possum examining a camera belonging to the Australian Department of information. Shot by young Department photographer Harold George Dick with a Graflex Speed Graphic camera, who was killed in an airplane crash in December 1943 while returning from an assignment at the Pacific war theater, more specifically, the Battle of Arawe. A couple of his war images can be found here and here.
