come travelling...

Welcome to the family..

As per my last blog post, I was tossing up the idea to throw a mirrorless compact system camera in to the mix.  Well, I did it. I bought the Samsung NX300!

So far, I am totally in love! The technology that this beast offers me, is insane.  I think back to my first DSLR, which was the super popular Canon 20D and what this Samsung camera offers is just mind blowing in comparison!

The camera has come with the kit lens (18-55mm) and together they are just so small and compact.  I love it.

This is the very first image I took, straight out of the camera. 

FYI - This is my solar powered Maneki Neko that sits on the dashboard of my car! It always gets a smile out of people as it waves and wobbles back and forth :)

As you can see, the picture quality is pretty good! Nice bokeh!

Now I'm currently investigating other lenses and I think the first cab off the rank will be the 16mm f2.4 pancake lens.  Who doesn't want a fast, wide lens for travelling? The reviews look amazing and notably it seems extremely well suited to street and landscape photos.  The other exciting thing is the price difference.  I won't say what I have paid for a Canon L lens, but anyone who is into photography knows that it's a very serious investment. At below $400AUD for this 16mm f2.4 lens, it really offers bang for buck value for money.

Anyway, that's all for now - there are only 6 more weeks until I am stateside, and I can't be more excited now that I have a travel companion in the Samsung NX300!

Happy snapping!
