Micro Four Thirds is stealth

What do I mean by Micro Four Thirds is stealth?

I’ll share a little experience from shooting the Sangyaw Carnival at the Tacloban Astrodome. I went there two times, the first one I brought along my Nikon D800E with Nikkor AFS 24mm 1.4 and Nikkor AFD 85mm 1.4, this equipment was ideal for shooting in lowlight and street photography. The second chance I got, I brought along my Panasonic G3 with Panasonic 7-14mm 4 and Olympus 45mm 1.8. Plus I was able to bring a lightweight tripod. Try bringing a tripod for the Nikon full-frame DSLR, you know what I mean. It’s possible but it’s not too practical at times.

Being stealthy is equally important especially when shooting at the streets or public places. When I was shooting with the Nikon DSLR, most of the times I really hesitated pointing them at the crowd. With the Micro Four Thirds system, I was able to snatch a few snaps without being too obvious.
