Olmpus sp 600uz, My new Camera.

I always wanted an camera which just did't take a picture but took a masterpiece.

As i am a camera Fanatic, i always enjoyed holding and operating a Camera.

In recent times as i got some money, i wanted to fulfill my dream of owning a camera for my self. I just need not wanted to take a picture but i wanted a tool which can take pictures in a different perspective. What fun there will be taking each and every picture the same way as every one does?! it will be a just another picture thats all. But as i look at one object at a different way, hundred of new angles and ideas shoot across my mind, and to capture those "Stupid" Pictures i need a good camera.

Recently my cousin Shrinidhi Hande had visited a western country, I thought, Oho! what a great opportunity to get myself a camera from ABROAD :) so decided, and explained my intentions to Nidhi(Shrinidhi Hande), who obliged for my request and took his precious time and money which he used to get me a camera, (i still have not paid him!!!).

Nidhi decided to get me a camera at Duty Free shops in the Dubai International Airport, which seemed a reasonalble bargain for buying any goods as it is "DUTY FREE (Fee)"?. As he planned he enquired and gave me a list of cameras to buy from, he had only 2 hours of Transit time so had to hurry, as he texted me through Facebook Messages i was unable to comply as i was Asleep and was totally unaware.

Finally Nidhi bought me Olympus sp 600uz which seemed to match my discriptions of the camera i wanted.



Upon purchase nidhi messaged me, what he had bought for me, when i woke and saw those messages, i got up and plugged in my Photon+ and started browsing for the details of this camera.

As i got my hands on the camera, started exploring its features as a little kid who gets his first toy.



After handling the camera for couple of days, i got an idea about how to operate and take pictures, as i had taken about 600+ pictures within 35 hours!.

As i began to adapt for the camera i started noticing its Pro's & Con's, i have listed the same below.

Pros:
1. 15x zoom which allowed me to take pictures perfectly became one of the biggest advantages. (Remeber i told you i like to take pics in a different manner, i took many pics of people wondering and not knowing i am Clicking away their pics which i found was amusing).

2. Sense of handling a Professional camera was also an feeling which is good, the camera had a grip of DSLR cameras which is good to hold.

3. Duel Image stabilizers were also good and easy, but had to punch in right features to use it.

Con's:

1. Absense of view finder is a big disadvantage of this perticular camera.

2. Automatic flash was not an option, as i had to manually take out the flash and then use it, as it was a power saving feature of the camera.

I have mentioned only couple of pro's & Con's,which i noticed, as i have not used this camera till its peaking limit till yet.



But i enjoyed taking photographs in this camera as it is just right to my requirement.

Some of the pictures that i have taken are also available in this post.



Thats it for now, its Weekend Tomorrow!!! need to go.

Take care every one.
