it’s a pen

it’s not a point and shoot, not an slr . . . it’s a pen.  what will you create?

well that is how olympus camera company described e-p1, a camera that features the sophistication of a d-slr but is built into an extremely small and easy to use camera.

i have been wanting a d-slr camera for sometime now but having a bulky camera with me just dissolves the thought. currently, i use my ever-dependable sony cybershot w300 and i also have a t77.  i am not really knowledgeable on cameras but when i saw the olympus e-p1 on the internet, i got fascinated with its features as an alternative for a d-slr.  here’s the overview of the ep-1 from the olympus webpage ~ click here.

i saw sample images from digital camera review, you have to scroll down on the page to see the pictures they took and it was surprisingly nice!

  1. shift to canon, you cant go wrong with that (from a canon ixus 85 user).

    yung olympus, merong ganyan yung isang travel blogger. pang wide angle yan right? problema pag tao na yung subject, nagiging wide din yung face. hihi.

    di ako maciado fanatic ng reviews. you need to FEEL the camera first. right there, malalaman mo yung model na para syo. Ü

    • .. thanks for the advice, chyng. di bale, i have ample time to think about it and likely check it out personally first before i purchase one.

  2. so lazy to google, so how much is this handy cam?

    got so many bills yet to settle so i might also work and wait my a** of* before i get to purchase a nice fancy dslr.

    • .. lowest i can find is 29k gelo – single lens, brand new, with warranty at an online dealer. olympus have released two newer versions (the ep-2 and e-pl1) since they introduced this one in 2009 but i will stick to the ep-1.
