I have a Canon 70D, and I love it. I’ve invested in some great lenses, including a 16-35 and 17-55 at 2.8, an 8mm fisheye, and a 60mm macro. It shoots beautiful video and stills, and I can get into the settings of this magnificent beast to take lots of beautiful pictures.
The thing is, I don’t carry it around with me as much as I would if it were smaller. It’s perfect for days when I get it into my head that I’m going to go and take lots of pictures of things, and pretend that I’m a Real Photographer™, but carrying it around is a commitment.
Enter this little, waterproof, Olympus point-and-shoot thing that I picked up recently. It shoots video, has a decent lens for its size, and fits entirely in my pocket.
I’ve been carrying it around with me this weekend, and here are some pictures I took using its black and white “art photo” setting.
Not bad for a little point-and-shoot thing, right? I could do the post-processing in gimp or whatever, but there’s something fun about seeing these shots like this on the camera’s little screen.
