My new toy!!

After playing around with the Fuji S9500 and taking some test shots, I somehow feel that I'm not really upgrading my S602Z. :(

So after more research, I ended up with the Olympus E-300 DSLR with it's dual lens kit. heart pain on the investment but I hope it will be worthwhile as I embarked onto the DSLR bandwagon with my new toy. So far I'm impressed with what I'm getting. It's true that it's the person that takes the photo not the camera, but having a good equipment does helps. :P

So watch this space as I update this blog with more photos using the E-300.
