Looking For The One….

Despite being obsessed with taking lots of  photographs, I am not a professional photographer, and on the grand scheme of things I’d rate myself as an amateur when it comes to the detail and science behind advanced photography and related equipment.

I have a digital SLR and a small pocket sized compact as my main ‘go-to’ cameras. These have been loyal to me for more years than I care to mention, and have produced photographs that I absolutely adore.

However, I have come to realise just how much additional bulk and weight I carry around with me (on holiday etc) with the cameras and lenses I have at the moment.

Lens 1: 14-42mm

Lens 2: 45-150mm 

Pocket compact: 4.7-23.5mm

What I would really like, is one of two things:

  1. Ideally a compact camera that does not require bulky lenses, but with the same lens capability of the two lenses I currently have.
  2. An SLR with the combined lens capability of the lenses I currently have.

The first option would be preferable to keep weight and bulk down.

I’ve also been coming across a lot of mentions about ‘mirror less’ cameras….

I’m never going to be a ‘light traveller’ until I sort this out!

Any tips or recommendations would be much appreciated…..

I found a few possible contenders to save up for, but would like to keep costs as low as possible, though sometimes you only get what you pay for:


Decisions, dilemmas, deliberations and a headache, the joys of camera shopping!
