After lusting after the Olympus Pen and it’s fairly hefty price tag for over 2 years earlier this year I finally bit the bullet and decided to purchase the famous camera.

The Olympus Pen is also known as the best camera for all bloggers and social media addicts like myself for several different reasons but the one that makes it stand out to most other cameras is it’s built in wi-fi. All you have to do is download the app on your phone or tablet, activate the wi-fi on the camera and there are all the pictures you’ve taken. This is extremely handy to then edit (I use the VSCO app) and upload onto Instagram/Twitter/Facebook or even straight up to your blog.

The actual image quality is incredible and the camera is unbelievably user friendly, perfect for photography experts or someone who has never picked up a camera in their life.

image Olympus have alson taken the accessories they offer to a whole new level, for my birthday this year Sean managed to get me the Olympus leather camera bag. I’ve wanted a bag where I knew my camera would be safe but something that looked good as well and this nude shoulder bag is absolutely perfect, it has the inside of a camera bag so you know your camera and lenses are safe and won’t get damaged but from the outside it just looks like an everyday shoulder bag which I love!!

There are so many lenses on offer as well for the Pen, I currently have a collection of three of them:

45mm – I’ve heard this described as the perfect blogger lens and I would completely agree! This lens is perfect for creating the sought after blurry background that bloggers want for their images.

40-150mm – This lens is a bit of a beast so it’s not one that I take out with me on a daily basis, unless I know I will definitely use it. I took it with me to a festival I went to not long ago and this is the lens that I used to take my favourite photograph I’ve ever taken.

14-42mm Standard kit – This is the lens that the camera came with and it’s absolutely perfect as a kit lens, it gives you the range to take multiple types of images and is ideal to start out with. I would only recommend delving into other lenses if you want a little bit more from your photography.  


Have you tried the Olympus Pen E-PL7?

  1. I’ve wanted one for a while, but have been worried it’s not as good as others say so this post is great. Thanks for the explanation of the lenses too! I want to get into photography more as have always liked it, but taking the plunge and buying the camera worries me! x

    • It took me a long time to take the plunge and buy the Olympus Pen but I’m so glad I did now. I would definitely suggest doing your research and check out as many reviews as you can to make sure your getting the right camera for you and what you want to photograph.
