Happy New Years Eve everyone! My eye candy photo contribution to wishing everyone a healthy and joyous ’18 despite the cold weather start! I shot it on my living room floor with the new loaded Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, $899 with power zoom kit lens ($699.99 body only). I used the unique Olympus Live Composite Mode which makes taking professional fireworks and star streaking photos a “snap”.
“On the seventh day of Christmas my tech love gave to me, seven image catchers, six shiny laptops, five top-tier smartphones, four odd collections, three streaming players, two instant photos and a java in a pear tree.”
Smart phone cameras are getting better but are no match when it comes to tough weather or long zoom lenses. My camera gift guide offers value and a few ways to get best of class cameras at a saving.
