New camera again for me. Yay! And this time, i go back to Olympus.
I blogged about my first Olympus E-PL1 last year. The moment i got my hands around it, i was instantly smitten.
This time, it is the brand new Olympus PEN mini. And smitten once again i am. And i am not the only one. Every single person who laid their hand on it, was like possessed. They couldn’t get their hands off it.
Again, all the photos i am posting here today are 100% UNEDITED. Except cropping. So you all can taste all the rawness fresh from the camera.
First of all, the camera is PINK. (Other people might argue that first of all, it is really, REALLY mini, but for me the color was an instant deal maker.)
All of you who read my blog know that i am #foreveralone and i cannot take picture without a mirror. Therefore the camera is always seen in my pictures, and it has sort of became my trademark -_-.
I was using a black camera before this, so when i wear all girly and pink, imagine how potong steam it is you’re holding some black stuff.
Nope. No longer.
My precious Olympus PEN mini is PINK. Not to mention it come with a pretty weaved strap. I gotta give it to Olympus. They always come up with the best accessories ever!
Comes in 4 awesome colors! Pink, White, Brown and Black.
About the size.
You think by compromising the size, you get less features right? There must be a trade-off, right?
Err, wrong. It was EVERYTHING a PEN ever has. And more. And it only weights 217 grams.
I don’t wanna go all technical and i know by nao you all are shouting SHUT UP ALREADY PICTURES PLS. Yea yea okay, here you go.
Did i mention i loooove all the art filters by Olympus?
Pin Hole Effect
Pop Art Effect
Soft Focus. Dreamy!!
Apart from the usual filters, it now also has something that is so incomprehensibly awesome, it will change the history of Photoshop forever.
It is the 6th art filter called Dramatic Effect. It is so dramatic that it got me hooked. Like forever. I was like, this is the mode that I will EVER NEED.
Wait for it.
.*dramatic drum rolls*
All these pictures are taken during my recent Singapore trip.
Again, i have to emphasize that all the pictures below are 100% UNEDITED.
It gives the picture a very posterized effect. And it also picks the right tones and colors to accentuate on.
It makes every photo look like i spend hours Photoshopping them!!
Just look at that! It makes every random thing on earth look interesting and as if every photo carries a significant meaning wtf #hipster
And somehow human portrait look really vivid and almost 3D. I loooove it.
Even under extreme low light (without flash), the picture came out sharp and colorful.
I don’t know who created this filter but i want to give him/her a big hug now.
This is really perfect for artsy fartsy shots.
This is a photo of a painting. It looks better than the painting itself wtf.
I don’t know how but it just always sets the right mood. There’s almost zero skill needed with this camera. Except maybe to camwhore.
Was taken in bar under low light too.
And here’s my favorite photo.
I can’t even begin to tell you how in love i am with my Olympus PEN mini now. It just has away to make me fall in love all over again.
