As you can see, it’s an amazing small little camera! Micro-four-thirds is a system that GROWS with you. From the simplest kit lens usage in iAuto or P mode to using the A/S/M mode to using the built-in ART FILTERS to using Manual Focus lenses via adaptors to using it’s HD Video… … it’s almost limitless! Being much smaller than a typical DSLR, I truly enjoyed my night shoot! Communicating with my subjects was much easier cause I wasn’t using a huge DSLR which looks like a press photographer (Oh, I pray the Press Photographers don’t use such small cameras to spoil my street shoots one day… LOL…) Communicate? Yes, I do try to communicate when I can, mostly by my body language and sometimes a chat.

  7. Hi,i really enjoy ur web..great photography..
    Which will you recomend Pen 1,2,EPL1 or GF1?


  8. Choice is personal. I place more importance on image quality than ergonomics. For now, I’ll recommend the E-PL1. A newer model could be out soon, so maybe I’ll like the next model better. At the current moment, my next preference is the Sony NEX. And my last choice being GF1.

  9. Thanks for ur advice..how bout epl-1 compare to nex?
