I get asked about my camera frequently so in this post I wanted to share my choice of cameras these past years and why.
THE BEST CAMERA TO USE IS THE ONE IN YOUR HAND
Do enough reading on the internet and you’ll eventually come upon this quote. The best camera to use is the one in your hand. If a moment you want to remember is in front of you, the best way to capture that moment is by using the device that will allow you to do it.
Ok … now that’s aside … I’ll briefly outline my own journey.
10 years ago I had a canon point and shoot. I loved that thing. Fit in my pocket. I took it to Asia, Europe and Mexico. But a trip to San Miguel de Allende made me realize I wanted an upgrade. So I bought the entry level Canon DSLR.
I started to learn about glass (lenses) and acquired 3. But then we went on a vacation and I had a permanent dent on my shoulder from all the weight of the gear.
This was around 2010 and I learned about the mirrorless systems. At that time, the two options I had were between Olympus and Panasonic. Sony was still fairly new to the market.
So I sold my Canon for a PEN EP3. I used that camera for many years. I bought the 12mm, the 17mm, the 45mm, and a zoom lense.
For my purposes it was fabulous. Below are some photos I took with it.
