(please excuse the awful phone photo, obviously my camera was being used!)
I'll admit it; when it comes to technology I'm awful. Not in the sense that I can't do any of that stuff, but more in the fact that I'm pretty much never happy. I started off last year with the Canon 1100D DSLR and after a few happy months sold that one because it was far too big and clunky to carry around on a daily basis, not to mention the photos were just okay and not amazing other than the telephoto which wasn't used often enough. This led to the purchase of the Nikon Coolpix P510, a 'bridge' camera with a far higher megapixel count and a great zoom. Again, a few happy months and I cooled towards the camera; again, the photos weren't of amazing quality and the camera itself felt very limiting with no good timer setting or way to use a remote. FINALLY, last month I got my hands on the Olympus PEN E-P2 at an amazing price on eBay (£180! still selling new for £500+ some places) and I can say that I am really quite happy with this baby. It's retro styled, doesn't feel cheap with a weighty metal body and is super compact with micro four thirds lenses, the only con is the lack of flash and I just nabbed a flash gun for £18 off amazon so no worries there. Hopefully we will live happily ever after!
