I recently bought this camera, the Olympus OM-D.
And what can I say, I’m in love. Modeled after the Olympus-OM1 film camera that was introduced in 1972 as Olympus’ first SLR camera, this camera has the classic look and feel, but with the complete digital full-meal-deal.
And just like the Olympus OM-1 earned wide acclaim in 1972 as the world’s smallest and lightest 35mm single-lens reflex camera, the Olympus OM-D is revolutionizing size, weight, and the ability to pack a punch (read more pros and cons here!).
Technically the Olympus OM-D is not a SLR camera and is actually Micro Four Thirds technology, but for someone like me who can barely understand the tech talk, all I care about is this: I do not need to carry around a massive backpack purely for an insanely expensive camera to get beautiful photos and video.
Now I’m not going to go around and call myself a photographer as I really am not, but I’m happy to say my photos of babies,cats and food are looking a whole lot better already.
PLUS A SUPER BONUS, for under $20 you can buy an adapter, and then put any vintage Olympus lens on the camera. This truly is awesome.
