My New Toy

Okay, I have been wanting to upgrade my camera for awhile now. Bob asked me what I wanted for X-mas two years ago, and I replied that I wanted to get a new camera. By the time this past X-mas rolled around I was still undecided on which one to get - I wanted the quality of photos that you would get from a DSLR but in a camera with a more compact frame. So I was waiting for the reviews on the new micro 4/3 cameras that Olympus and Panasonic debuted last fall. Well, I finally bit the bullet and we splurged on the Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm lens which we picked up just yesterday. Ideally if I could build my dream camera I would get the Olympus EP-1 body with the Panasonic pancake lens but that would be way too expensive and I am only an amateur.

I was so excited to try out the camera I immediately took some test shots of my cutie pie. Here they are: just auto setting and no post processing.

Of course a picture is only as good as the photographer. I'm just starting to learn so hopefully I'll get better at this!

  2. WOOHOO, new toy for Emmy! The pics look so good! I always wanted a cozy coupe for Katie, I'll have to go to HK to visit so we can play with it! ;P heehee!

    Ethan is looking more and more like a little boy and less like a baby every time I see pictures! He's growing up so fast! He is so handsome and photogenic!
