Sophie the cat posed for me today when I was playing around with my new camera at our friends Ragga and Junah’s house.
The camera is a new model by Olympus – the OMD EM-5. It is a four thirds camera – which means it is smaller and lighter than a typical SLR digital camera with interchangeable lenses.
I like the camera for its compact size, solid construction, wide range of lens options, and performance; it takes great photos and videos. It is a hot camera on the market right now.
Matt talked me into getting it. He has the same camera with silver trim. Nothing makes a new toy more fun, than having a playmate that has one too.
Actually, there is something that makes a new toy even MORE fun. Knowing someone who wishes he had your toy. Junah really wants a camera just like mine and Matt’s. We tormented him by showing off our cameras today.
As is typical of digital gadgetry, the camera has many more features than I will probably ever use. I played with the “art filters” today and had some fun results. I thought the ‘Gentle Sepia’ filter complimented Junah and Ragga’s natural and relaxed style.
But it is amazing how the black and white ‘Grainy Film’ filter seemed to change the mood.
live. enjoy. repeat.
