to my Internet home...

My name is:
Rico Bergholdt Hansen

I live in:
Odense, Denmark.

This is where I post my own photos and videos along with general ramblings about the things that interest me, such as: Travelling, landscapes / nature, history, design, architecture, music, art, science & technology and related topics...


Olympus OM-D E-M10 - Video Sample...

For ease of use, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 will be my new walkaround camera for photography and video. A bag full of old manual prime lenses is fun but also a bit on the heavy side and having zoom and autofocus just makes life that much more easy :)

The camera is paired with a great Four Thirds all-round lens - the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD. It needs an adapter to work on a Micro Four Thirds camera but the end result is pretty nice.

It's not very compact with that lens but it does beat a bag full of manual primes...

Video quality can be seen in the above video which was shot handheld with this combo. I'd call it fair quality from a 24Mbps .mov file.

The lens is super sharp for photography. My flickr E-M10 album is here. All are shot in RAW and some are HDR.


Scandimania - Denmark...

BBC's Channel 4 / Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall visits Denmark.

Food, Nordic Noir dramas, architecture and lifestyle is discussed.

An episode about Sweden and Norway were made as well.


1864 - Denmark against Prussia...

The second Sleswig War. 150 years ago, the Danish Empire was met by a huge power from the south...

It's a Danish TV series that will become a movie too. Starting this autumn 2014...


Skagen Trip Slideshow - Easter 2014...

A visit to Skagen, Denmark with stops at Illerup Ådal near Skanderborg and Rubjerg Knude lighthouse near Lønstrup. All photos shot (in RAW format) with Olympus OM-D E-M10 and 14-42mm f/3.5 - f/5.6 EZ kit lens. Edited in Photoshop with the plug-ins 'LucisArt', 'Nik collection - Color Efex Pro 4' and 'PictureCode - Noise Ninja'.

Large resolution photos available on my flickr.
