  • Wednesday 25th November 2015, Vatnajˆkull national park, Iceland: Photographer Mikael Buck with assistance from renowned local Icelandic guide Einar Runar Sigurdsson, explored the frozen world of Vatnajˆkull glacier in Iceland using Sonyís world first back-illuminated full-frame sensor ñ which features in the ?7R II camera. His images were taken without use of a tripod or any image stitching techniques in photoshop. This was made possible through Sonyís new sensor technology, allowing incredibly detailed low-light hand held photography. Previously images this detailed would have required carrying bulky equipment to the caves, some of which can require hiking and climbing over a glacier for up to two hours to to access.

This picture: Looking up from inside the 'ABC cave' - which stands for Amazing Blue Cave.  Guide Einar Runar Sigurdsson can be seen ice climbing on the glacier outside.
