Blogosphere, meet Lexington

 
My Olympus E-M10 arrived in the mail yesterday! Breaking from my traditional Harry Potter names for my previous DSLRs, I'm naming this little baby, Lexington, Lexi for short. I'm choosing to break the Harry Potter naming tradition because I feel like it's a new chapter of photography for me and it's a mirrorless camera rather than a DSLR aaaand yes, I'm no longer a Canon user :(

For those who don't know, I used to be very into photography. As stated, I had a Canon Rebel DSLR until it got stolen one night. Between working part time and paying bills, it took me almost a year to save up for a new camera but unfortunately by then, I lost all interest in photography.

Since a few months ago, I've been looking into starting a new hobby. Nothing interested me aside from photography and it kept nagging me in the back of my mind.

Also recently, I caught the travel bug. All I want to do is just travel.

So, I chose to invest in another camera again, this time the mirrorless Olympus camera. I hope to redevelop and improve my photography skills. In addition, I want to take photography much more serious that before because when I'm traveling, I hope photography can lead me to some little side income.

All in all, I'm getting back into photography but much more dedicated to it ever before! I don't want to be a professional photographer - but just a hobbyist that can earn a few bucks here and there. I'm super excited to share what I'll be shooting soon! In aligning with 2016 goals for my blog, I think I might even start vlogging ;) but that's a whole different thing.

Until then, welcome Lexington and drop by my Flickr page (which is filled with old photographs a few years back). Looks like I won't be shopping for anything else for a while....


DSLR quality for half the size!



 

I did some serious comparison and read a lot of reviews before settling on this model. If you have any questions, let me know!

  1. You must take photos of all the things while you're in NZ! Especially Wellington since I won't be able to see it with you :( I just realised that I'm going to have an exam while you're in the country! Boo. I am going to pick your brain when you're over here because I want to get a proper camera too!

  5. We possibly could! Remember how I said my one and ONLY exam is the day that you fly into the country? ;) It just depends on how much money I have hahaha.
