Olympus PEN E-PL1

I got a new camera, the Olympus PEN E-PL1. It’s super dope.

I got it due to a burglary at my parents house in which an old film SLR and a video camera (amongst other things like a car) got stolen. Thieving cunts, right? Anyway, as they stole that along paired with the fact that no one used the cameras for a few years anyway, I decided to ask for a camera that would actually be used, by me.

When I first got it I was playing around with it, as you do, and I was neglecting the ‘ART’ setting because I never use them as they’re normally quite shitty. I tried it out last night and some of the settings are fantastic. The two setting I use from there (which can also be used with the video recorder in 720p) are Grainy B&W and Diorama AKA Tilt-Shift as the shots are really, really nice.

They look better big so check out my Olympus PEN E-PL1 set that I’ve set up on my Flickr account, it’s linked with my iPhoto so the set will be constantly updated, if you’re interested.
