Ever since I switched to my (perhaps “invested is the most appropriate term to use given the astronomical price tag) behemoth monster of a camera (Canon 5D Mark 2), I must say I’ve become very suspicious of portable, tiny ‘point and shoot’ cameras. The quality isn’t the same, you know?

Olympus Japan recently gifted me one of their Olympus Pen cameras (Olympus Pen Lite E-PL3 to be specific) and I must say I’m very impressed by it. There are times when I don’t want to bring my ultra heavy camera with me, especially when I’m going out at night. Nothing screams “FASHION BLOGGER” more than someone in designer clothes with a huge camera dangling from his/her/shim’s arm. The Olypus Pen Lite is tiny, compact and very discreet. It’s the perfect camera to bring when you want to document private memories.

  1. Oooooo…I’ve been eyeing these micro four third cameras for awhile now. That is one awesome gift:)

  2. I bought the E-PL1 2 wks ago but had to return it cos the flash was not working but I love the photos I have taken. Alas, got the Panasonic Lumix GF3 instead because it’s even smaller and lighter with Light Speed AF focusing system.

  3. i’m an olympus pen user and i am nothing but happy and contented with this camera. definitely one of my best buy and it suits teh fact that i don’t like DSLR and the people who walk like a freakin camera store… good for street photography and the art filter are amazing…micro four thirds rules!

  4. hm, good to know – I will be traveling for a few months and documenting the fashion. So I’m currently looking for a less conspicuous camera. Really hesitant to bring my clunky 5D. This is helpful! caseofthetinycloset.blogspot.com

  5. Bought one used 2 years ago. Simply love the camera. Do lots of food pics and exercise pics.
    No match to the quality in my books, and easy to use!!

    Awesome site!!
