Camera Gear

If you have had the chance to read through my story you will find I changed direction with my photography as I advanced along my journey.  Currently, I find the micro four thirds system from Olympus perfect for me.  I’m basically a landscape photographer capturing my images from sunrise through sundown.  This system is small enough for me to carry all day with great image quality and allows me to capture what interests me.

  1. Great idea, sharing your equipment list. Once you make a choice—Nikon or Canon—and you add the related gear, you’re stuck. And you’ve learned all the controls, so it’s trickier to switch. I tried both, and made the Canon choice. If money were no object, I’d have Nikon too, Leica and many many more.

    There’s a lot of buzz today about mirrorless cameras—have you tried one? As for one more camera to add to your already burgeoning arsenal, I couldn’t live without these two small ones: my Canon Powershot G15 and my iPhone 5s. The Canon, for its compact lightweight size, fully-featured options, great image quality and print resolution. Plus it’s easy to have along on a hike or bike or kayak or just in my purse. The iPhone 5s is fabulous for two reasons: it’s always with me, and it’s capable of amazing photos with plenty of apps available to tweak.

    Thanks for a post that got me thinking!

    • I’m probably safer money is an object or I would have more camera gear! 🙂

      I have the Olympus E-P3 which is a mirrorless camera which I purchased to start playing around with the micro four thirds format. I like it for its smaller size but it is slightly older and has a few limitations I am not always happy with. I would love to get the EM-1 but it comes back to that money thing. lol
