i have used my olympus e-p1 camera for three years now and it has always been with me since i started travelling alone. it has given me great memories through the photos it took and it became one of the most important things that i have owned.
during my visit in agra, i accidentally dropped my oly while i was changing the lens. the pancake lens was badly scratched, can no longer focus and the images that it took are all blurred – i tried to get it fixed back in manila but the technicians that i have been to told me that a micro four-thirds lens is very difficult to fix and i need to buy a new one (i did not consider it as a very helpful advise!). an olympus pancake lens will cost almost $300.00 and i thought i would rather get a new camera. i was deciding if i will be getting a dslr this time but still the bulk of carrying one changed my mind and i resorted back on the smaller cameras with interchangeable lenses and it was still on the range of my budget (thanks to our company safety bonus!). i chose to buy from sony, the nex-3n.
sony nex-3n is low-priced and as i have read in reviews and seen on sample photos and test shots, it does take quality images. i myself have never been interested on technical details and specifications of a camera. as long as i can take a good picture and satisfied with it, then that’s it – as simple as that.
now you can make new memories with this one. sorry about your last one.
.. i’m excited to use it in my trip to sri lanka, ewok.
enjoy your new toy and sri lanka trip. i have heard good feedback from officemates who traveled there.
.. thanks, jo. i’ll be in colombo in a few days.

but you know it’s not my priority as of present.
