fading beauty

finally it’s weekend time! I had some fun the other day playing around with a new camera…the Canon EOS M from Orms Direct. With the quality of a digital SLR camera in a super compact body, I am so impressed with the stunning clarity and ‘user-friendliness’ of the camera. It has the practical scene intelligent setting for those days when I’m not feeling particularly intelligent, and an effortless touch-screen for versatile shooting. No, this is not the camera for professionals, I’m well aware. But, if you want a light-weight, compact camera with incredible clarity, then this is a good choice!
