The mighty Olympus EP-1!

with 23 comments

As most of you readers have known by now, I am absolutely in love with my new Olympus EP-1 camera!
This camera has everything a DSLR has, and the best part is,
the EP-1 is smaller and looks more chic as compared to any regular DSLRs!
Mine comes with a black camera case and also an adhesive red outer “skin” that allows me to customize how I want my camera to look like!
Gorgeous right? :)

The camera is made of a strong metallic finish and it feels oh-so-sturdy on my hands!
And if you don’t want it to be in a metallic grey color,
you don’t even need to worry about it at all because
the camera comes with accessories of various colours and textures!
Look at mine – it’s in a luxurious shade of red. Pretty aye?
There is a unique E-Portrait function in the camera and this function is totally amazing!
Why?
Because it is like a makeup function that instantly helps
eliminate pimples and little blemishes on your skin, giving you perfect looking skin!
Omg, damn good for me when I’m lazy to put on makeup!
Hahahaha!! :D
But other than that, my favourite would be the ART Functions!

The functions are (clockwise from top left)
pinhole, grainy film, pale&light, pop art, soft focus and light tone.

The grainy film looks nostalgic and really funky, while the pale&light and light tone functions gives pictures a faded and vintage kind of feel. Pop art, on the other hand,
makes the colours more saturated and fresh looking.
Soft focus, well, makes everything look dreamy and fairy tale-like. Haa!
But my favourite, will have to be the pinhole function! It’s Lomography hello!!! WEE!!! <3

I have never been really very good with Photoshop so this function will help me a lot.
For myself, my favourite would have to be the pinhole function!
And I have taken many many pictures in Japan using this function! Check them out!

The Olympus EP-1 really impresses me a lot because everything about it is perfect!
The camera is so small but packed with so much goodness!
Compared to many other mini DSLRs on the market, the camera is so much smaller!
The lens are retractable and it makes the camera tight and compact!
Okay, I am in love! :)
If you’re wondering whether the video mode on this camera works with the ART Functions, well check this out!

I have roped my cousin (Demi) in to do up this little video for me.
Hahahaha!
She looks really adorable and she is freaking talented, I’d have to say!
Well, this video is all about family and love.
I hope it’s not too lame but Demi is the joy in our family because of her drama-mama character (lol)! I hope you guys will love this video as well.
(And remember to love your family, dear friends!)
