Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

all hail the olympus e-pl1

here are the reasons why i won’t buy a huge camera

1.) i am a bag woman – i carry a lot of stuff. on any given day, i carry a lot of make up around and i always have a set of gym clothes in my bag ( i don’t wear ugly gym clothes because since i work so hard to look the way i do, there is no reason to not wear only a sports bra whilst working out)

2.) on any given day as well. i have a book and a magazine with me.

3.) i haven’t found a camera bag that looks good!!!!

i was OVER the moon when my loh kong( hubby) said – loh poh ( wifey) we have a camera on loan from olympus. it’s a quasi dlsr but not quite one. very light.

what camera is that – it is the all new olympus e- pl1

i am a chick, i don’t know anything about cameras. i just want to shoot and go. i do not know the technicalities but i am just going to give it to you as how chick should

it’s really light therefore carrying it – it’s no sweat. it comes in four colors – black, silver, white and red. the red one is so hot. every chick needs that.

there are so many functions and even art fillers that you could use and that saves you time from tweaking it on photoshop later on. since we are talking about a camera here. let me show you some pictures. i did not edit or touch it.

starbucks coffee beans taken with the nature macro mode

i am surprised that the photo turned out so fine - macro mode

sophie the model - taken using the soft sephia art filler

sophie the model looking a bit sad- taken using the grainy film art filler

sophie the model looking like an angelic dog from heaven - taken using the artfiller - soft focus. awww don't you think she looks so warm and fuzzy

just natural sunlight. no flash. i like the details the e-pl1 captures

again just macro mode - just point and shoot. even an idiot like me could do it

i really like this camera. i am a bit reluctant to give it back to olympus. hehe 🙂 i think it’s really a great camera for someone who don’t like the fuss and mess of carrying a dlsr. if you get bored with the standard lens, you could always upgrade to something better. for about HK$ 5XXX. it’s a good gap filler between the everyday camera and the dlsr.
