Since a few weeks I started to work with a new camera kit: the famous Olympus PEN E-PL7. In social media there is so much buzz about the camera being the ultimate Blogger camera. Of course I was curious what’s the secret of this little system camera? Could it really be better, than my expensive DSLR? And I can honestly say the little beauty is just as good as a DSLR. And this is what I appreciate the most on it:
Changeable lenses: The standart kit comes along either with a 14-42mm 3.5-5.6 zoom lens or with a 14-42mm 3.5-5.6 Pancake zoom lens. Due to its wide angles these lenses are perfect for the daily use and on travel. For optimising outfit photos – as you may know, they look great when shot with a strong-light lens with fixed focal length – Olympus offers the 45mm, which does these “blurry backgrounds”. Unfortunately I didn’t had the chance yet to try this lens, but I will and I’ll keep you updated about it.
It’s super compact: As already mentioned in a previous article about the Olympus PEN E-PL7 I find it very inconvenient to carry around my DSLR with the huge and heavy lens (especially on city trips). Since I always take the laptop and the camera in the hand luggage when flying, my bag is alway so heavy and full crammed. So I’m already looking forward to my next flight to Stockholm when, for once, my hand luggage is light and comfortable to wear haha.
Flip down screen: Perfect for taking selfies and making videos.
WiFi function: This one is definitely my favorite function and super easy to use and install.You simply have to download the Olympus smartphone app, connect it with your phone and with one touch you can view all the photos you took with the camera and transfer them directly to your smartphone. So as it seems, the times of loading the photos from the camera to the computer and back to the smartphone are definitely over!
HD Video: Unfortunately I didn’t had the chance/time yet to test this function, but I already planned something for Australia. But I only heard/ read good things about the video function in other reviews. I’ll let you know!
Appearance: In my opinion this little camera is currently the most beautiful on the market! She comes in three different colors: white, silver and black. Even if I’m actually a total black lover, the white one stole my heart. And also how it appears in its retro look of it, just so cute and stylish don’t you think?
I’m pretty sure, not let’s say I’m convinced the Olympus PEN E-PL7 was designed for bloggers. It offers everything a bloggers heart could wish for: compatibility, high-qulity photos, changeable lenses, a stylish appearance, different filter functions and a lot of other features.
