I bought my belated birthday present yesterday and I’m glad I waited as I got an awesome deal. The original plan was for buy the Olympus 8000 but I stepped back, had a real think about what I would use the camera for and which stats did I really require. I didn’t need to swim under 10mtrs, 3 mtrs was plenty and I didn’t need those extra 2mps as I’d be downsizing most of the time for use on my blog, plus 10mps is plenty for good quality prints at any size. Chosing the 6000 instead saved me over $200 and I got a spare battery thrown in!
I name all my camera’s. I have had “Ricci” (a vintage Ricoh SLR) for over a decade, I got “Penny” (a very old vintage Pentax SLR) as a gift from my great uncle when he passed and I bought “Niki” (my Nikon D80) late last year. Now I’d like to introduce you all to “Olly” my new little tough guy who’s ready to rough it with me. I know, my names are SO original right lol.
Olly is a very sexy beast and he still has that “new car” look and smell about him. He now takes up permenant residence in my handbag, he goes where I go because that’s the way we roll. I love my Niki and I’ll still be using her but for out & about, unplanned photo oppertunities Olly’s my main man. Yay to more random photos!!!
