I feel that in my blog posts I want to take the best photographs possible; so that is why I own the Olympus Pen e-pl7! I have a degree in Photography and have used and tested a lot of different camera’s in the past, from every day point and shoot, to high end professional camera’s. But the Olympus Pen e-pl7 is definitely one of my favourites!
As you can see from the photos, it’s a really compact camera which is small enough to fit in my handbag- perfect! Also having a disability which weakens my arms means that heavy camera’s are not an option and this camera is pretty lightweight and not hugely bulky which makes my life a lot easier. The Pen has a wide variety of lenses you can choose from, mine came with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14‑42mm 1:3.5‑5.6 lens which is a zoom lens. This is ideal for shooting outfit posts and general shots because I can zoom up to 3 x what I see through the camera. A lot of other bloggers use the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14‑42mm 1:3.5‑5.6 ‘Pancake’ lens which I will admit makes the camera even more slimline and this is definitely on my Christmas wish list!!
The camera technically is sound; it produces very high quality photographs for it’s size, it has a quick autofocus (but you can also control the focus manually too) and when I’m having a weak day and may need some extra help, it has a fantastic image stabiliser.
The Olympus Pen e-pl7 is THE perfect selfie camera for those of us who love to pose! And if you’ve seen my Instagram.. you know I love to! The screen flips down so you can see yourself when taking the shot so you’re always guaranteed to get one you love! There are also around 20 different filters to choose from including a gorgeous vintage one and around 25 different scene selections to suit your exact situation, so you can get unique and interesting photographs every time.
This post isn’t sponsored, I just wanted to tell you all about this camera that I love to use and really recommend to anyone who loves photography. And let’s be honest, doesn’t it just look beautiful too?!
