Snap Happy







Monday past I was treated to a few hours out of the office for the launch of the most amazing Olympus DSLR.. hosted by Fat Mum Slim , the uber babe of photography it was not just fab to hang out with her and play with the camera but to top it off we were lunching at Otto's. TOTALLY spoilt.

We are looking to buy a news DSLR as have a huge family gathering this Christmas but are doing a bit of a road trip prior to arrival. Our DSLR just takes up too much space and weight to be lugging around with the kids, rental car and travelling who knows where to boot..

Before I tell you about this baby let me say, no one knew beforehand I needed to get a new camera soon and this is not sponsored nor do we get and cashola off for saying it is fab (I wish)

I am actually going to sum it up pretty quick then go research any competition..

Its small and light
Looks kinda retro
Can do Manual or Auto
Has a touch screen, touch where you wanna focus, it does so and snaps the picture.
You can add filters to bling up pictures before downloading
On wi fi you can use the free app to shoot the images across from camera to your phone album SUPER quick.
BEST bit, set up the camera and use your phone as a view finder to set up the picture from a far and hit the button to take a picture.. how friggin' cool for those family pictures from a far.. we have 23 to fit in one frame!!!

What camera do you use? Any advice for a serious quality camera but not as big as my Canon DSLR?
