The Japanese Can Test Cameras PDF Print E-mail

Earlier this week, I got a new camera.  It doesn't have a super awesome sensor like the Nikon D700, and it doesn't have a huge catalog of lenses that can work with it, like the Pentax K20D, but it is: pretty awesome.  Mostly because it gets me to do things slightly differently.  The Olympus user interface is actually quite good and fast, but it's also VERY different from the Minoltas that I grew up with or the Sonys and Pentaxes that I've used recently.  The 4:3 aspect ratio has me thinking about framing a little differently than I used to.  The articulating screen has me thinking about how I move the camera around me differently as I search for the shot.

Despite how much cameras have evolved over the years and how each camera maker has sought to make their own photographic ways unique and cooler and better than the competition... you gotta hand it to the Japanese.  They know what really matters when it comes to cameras.

Eventually I'll get around to reviewing the cameras that I've loved (and sold!) over the years.  No hot Japanese bikini models to help me with that endeavor... ah well...
