My camera is the most important gadget I have. It pulls together 3 of my 4 passions….technology, digital scrapbooking and family. I am always on the look out for new features and cameras that enhance my life.The Olympus Digital PEN E-PM1 camera has definitely enhanced my life.
As part of the PEN READY Project, I have tested out the Olympus Digital PEN for about 2 months now. The best way for me to show you how well the camera works is to show you my pictures. All of the following pictures have not been through my typical Photoshop Elements process other than to make them smaller for my blog. I have not touched them up at all. Any filters you see are from the Olympus Digital PEN camera.
Olympus Digital PEN E-PM1 Samples
I received my camera the day before I got sick and ended up with pneumonia. The next month I spent at home with my kids taking turns being sick so I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to take beautiful pictures of landscapes. But it did give me the opportunity to give the Olympus Digital PEN a real family workout. My home is where most of my pictures are taken.
Olympus PEN Features
I’m really happy with the pictures that I’ve taken with the Olympus Digital PEN camera. I like that the camera also teaches you as you go and shows samples of the different settings in the scene mode. Instead of just having a portrait scene mode, you get a sample and written explanation of what the portrait mode is and when it’s best to use it.
If you prefer to take pictures in manual mode, there are a ton of settings you have control over. I am not good at manual mode which is why I love that this camera takes awesome shots in auto modes.
This camera is small enough and light enough to easily carry around with you. I have put it in my purse or laptop bag several times and it doesn’t add much weight. But the camera still gives you the option to add different lenses and a flash.
I have several cameras that I use for different situations. I have one that I keep in my purse all the time so I always have a good camera with me. The Olympus Digital PEN took awesome pictures of my son’s play and my daughters’ Nutcracker performance. I’m still taking it out with me often to see how the camera performs in different situations. I’m learning a lot about taking pictures when I use this camera also.
Disclosure: I received the Olympus Digital PEN E-PM1 camera as part of the PEN READY Project in exchange for uploading 20 photos to the PEN READY Project website. This review was not required, but I wanted to tell you all about the camera.
