Super exciting stuff guys: I got my hands on a new camera! For a while now, I’ve been looking for a new camera for my blog and Youtube channel. As you probably already know, I want to start vlogging more on a daily basis. I also didn’t want to take my heavy duty DSLR Canon camera with me everyday. I was looking for the perfect to-go camera and now I finally made it mine: the Olympus PEN E-PL7. Not only does this camera look very pretty, it also makes the prettiest videos + photos. Wanna know more about it? Keep reading then!
So, my new camera is the Olympus PEN E-PL7 camera with the standard 14-42mm kit lens . This is a mirrorless compact system camera with detachable lenses. This means you can change up the whole style of your photography with adding new lenses to the camera. The fact that you can still be very creative with your photography skills by switching up the lenses is definitely the one of the biggest reason why I went for this camera. Big plus!
The camera is really small and lightweight, which makes it perf for travelling. It also comes with a big touchscreen, which is always a plus for me. I still have to study all the different options a bit tho, haha.
One of my favourite aspects of this camera is the flipscreen. It flips out downwards, which makes it perfect for vlogging or taking selfies. An essential for every blogger and Youtuber right ;). It is a bit annoying if you want to make photos while placing your camera on a surface + wanting to see yourself, but for those kinds of situations I have my Canon DSLR.
I’m not planning to go very in depth and all tech-y in this blogpost: I know the basics of photography, but that’s really it. I can tell you something about the results of this camera tho. The best way to describe the photos and videos that this camera makes is as if you’ve already edited the footage on Instagram. Everything looks like you’ve added the perfect filter. The standard kit lens is also very versatile. You can zoom in pretty closely to the subject, but you can also get a wide angle if you’d like (these two photos are taken on the same spot).
So yeah, not only does this camera look super, super stunning (I mean, how pretty are these colours right), it’s also the inside that counts. This is a very popular camera in the fashionbloggers industry and I totally get why. It looks cute, it’s lightweight, it makes the perfect filtered photos and you can change up the look and feel of your photography completely by switching up the lens. I have literally no bad thing to say about it, definitely recommend this baby to every blogger (or non-blogger) out there! You can find this camera here.
That’s it for this blogpost. I hope you enjoyed reading about my new (vlog) camera from Olympus! I’m using it all the time, now that I’m staying in the Ibis Gent Centrum Opera hotel. Today is my last day and I can’t believe my little trip with Josie is already over. It was so much fun (+ really productive too)! I vlogged the whole trip with this new awesome camera. Can’t wait to share the footage with you. So yeah, have a nice day and I will talk to you later guys!
