  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this camera!

  • October 04, 2014
  • By: Annie

I bought this camera last year because I wanted to upgrade from a point and shoot camera. I wanted something more compact than a DSLR but still superb quality. Once I saw the Olympus Pen E-PL5 in white, I WAS SOLD! To say this camera outperforms a lot of higher-end dslr cameras is a complete understatement. You would not believe the quality that comes out of this pretty little thing. My uncle who is a wedding photographer (and a die-hard DSLR believer) borrowed my camera for his trip to Spain one time because it was more compact and since then, he's actually bought one for himself for wedding photography. His 2 DSLR's now sit in dust! It's so compact but it doesn't compromise on the quality. The camera is small yet feels sturdy in your hands. Honestly, a lot of pro photographers have scoffed at me when they looked at my camera because they think I'm just a girl carrying some white plastic camera with a lens because it looked trendy. But they've never seen a camera like mine before and when they ask to look at it, every single person was surprised at how good it felt in their hands. Once they took a few shots with it, their condescending looks turned into awe. When I show them the tilting touch screen, BAM! So proud to own this camera. Unfortunately, I forgot to lock it in a safe when I left my hotel room and it was gone when I returned. I haven't bought another camera since because I am just grieving for the loss of my beloved camera... Definitely recommend this for starters and pros alike. You can't beat the quality for this price and I daresay you can't beat the quality with even more expensive cameras. Just check the reviews on all different sites. This camera is the REAL DEAL.
