I'd been toying with the idea of getting some sort of decent point and shoot for some time.
Much as I love my DSLR, it's heavy and bulky. Not ideal for lugging around on a family
holiday or for tucking away in a handbag.
The Olympus Trip was my first decent camera and even after I got the OM10 it was
still the camera I took on holidays with me. When I saw the Olympus PEN-1 last year
it was love at first sight - apart from the price tag. I checked the reviews and looked
at galleries by users here on Pbase and marked it for future reference. So, when I
found it heavily discounted as it has now been replaced by a newer model, I
decided to buy it. Of course, when I went to the camera shop this morning, I got
distracted by the 'all singing all dancing' P&S' and had to consider my options
over a cup of coffee and some texting to Máire. Finally I bought it, but not before
spotting a pretty summer dress as well! All in all a successful shopping trip.
