Christmas came…late!

 

Remember how I asked Santa for a camera for Christmas?

 

He didn’t bring one!  Mainly because Santa (me) couldn’t decide on what to get.  I struggled, stay with a point and shoot, or move into the DSLR world!

 

 

Well, Santa finally brought me a camera and it was worth the wait!  I got it on Friday and played with it all weekend.  So much fun!

 

Let me recap the process…

 

I have had two point and shoots in the last 8 years, both Olympus and I loved them.  They both came to an untimely end when I dropped them and they no longer worked, boo hoo!

 

I borrowed a friend’s DSLR and decided I just can’t be trusted to make that many decisions on how to take a picture.  Setting shutter speed, aperture, aaaaah!

 

Then I discovered the Olympus Pen Mini, E-PM1.

 

I think I’m in love!!!!!

 

It has all the familiarity of my previous Olympus Point and Shoots but it has the enhanced image quality and manual settings (when I want them) of a DSLR.  It has funky art settings (like the grainy one above I used taking a picture of my daughter), excellent video quality, and is small unlike the larger DSLRs I have researched.  I don’t fully understand photography and how cameras work but this camera is part of the micro four thirds family which is a mirrorless cousin to the DSLR allowing it to feel more like a point and shoot in size but with the ability to buy different lenses to increase image capabilities.

 

Here’s a few pictures I took this weekend with my new camera…

 

 

 

 

 

 

I snapped this first thing this morning after my daughter woke up , she wasn’t as amused as she looks!

 

Hopefully you will enjoy the photos to come!
