First still life with Olympus Pen F.

  
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to pick up my new camera the Olympus pen F! Kid in a sweet shop springs to mind. I opted for the 17mm 1.8 lens over the 40mm although I will add a couple of pros to that list once I’ve got the hang of the beast!

Now I will do a full review of the pen F very soon, it is a complex little monkey and I already would not recommend it for novices… (Just stick to the much cheaper and easier pen). But I’m a little in love with it already!

I took it out yesterday for a test run and shot this bright image in aperture priority at F1.8 I have to say it’s not bad at all for a csc and I’m quite impressed! I think with a slightly higher spec lens I’ll be well and truly won over.

I hope to get out with it this wkend to have a longer faff about so will be doing my review sometime next week.

February is one of my favourite months, winter is making way for Spring, and there is new life blossoming.

Yesterday I spent a rather chilly day at Angelsey gardens just outside of Cambridge, despite the drizzle I managed to take a few blossom shots. The smell was amazing- winter honeysuckles and daphne filled the air with their sweet scent.

The light was very cool, and the drizzle made for very dreamy shots.

Still life, burst.

  
Bursts of Spring are emerging throughout the countryside, I love the promise, it’s unbreakable, and beautiful.

I love taking pictures at this time of year, the light is gorgeous with just a hint of warmth but still further on the cool side, it’s sometimes hazy which makes for a real atmospheric shot, and my favourite subjects (flowers) are starting to bloom.

On the edge of my seat for Olympus pen f.


I am near to falling off my chair waiting for the new Olympus pen f to go on sale!

I’ve been thinking of adding another camera to my collection for a while now, and have previously dismissed csc’s, however, the spec that this little beaut comes with has changed my mind, and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it! When the basic pen came out the other year it just didn’t tick enough boxes for me, I know it’s a snip compared to this one so its no surprise.

The main thing that made me swoon apart from its gorgeousness and its 20 mega pixel sensor is that it has the all important view finder! I just love using a view finder and can’t get on with looking at just a screen. I’m also really looking forward to using the 17mm lens, plus am blown away by the reach of the ISO! Wow I’m nearly drooling, sorry.

It will also be nice to carry around something light,that packs more of a punch than my phone, and saves me taking out my big DSLR on occasions when I need to travel light.

I hope to buy the new pen f soon as, and will do a thorough review as soon as I’ve got to grips with it.
