Gotta Have It…Olympus Pen E-P1 Camera
So my homeboy, Drew, has let me borrow his Nikon D5000 SLR camera to play around with since I’ve been really disappointed with the picture quality of my Kodak point-and-shoot digital camera as of late. It seems like every Kodak camera I’ve had has issues, so I’ve had enough! Anyway, I’ve been researching about upgrading to SLR cameras because I’d like a better quality camara that has a bit more photographic freedom than your standard digital camera. Photography is like a 5th love of mine, so I think it would be great to focus on it more and to do that I’d like a really great “professional” camera.
I think I’m getting long winded, haha, so to make a long story short, I’ve found that the Nikon is an awesome piece of equipment, but a bit too complicated and bulky for what I plan on doing with my photography. So in my research, I found that Olympus has made a great compact SLR and point-and-shoot hybrid – the Pen E-P1. It has interchangable lenses for the option to have more control, but is still portable. I also really like the vintage look of the camera (looks like an old school film camera) I’m 90% sure I’m going to buy it (I found a great deal on Ebay), but the only downside is that I read the Auto-Focus isn’t good in low light (there goes my club & party photos!) and you have to buy the flash attachment (because it doesn’t have a built in flash). Have any of you guys owned or used this camera? I’d love any advice!
