New camera (Olympus Pen E-PL8), new schedule and holiday plans for August

Hello girls! Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a week but I sold my Canon EOS 700D and I was waiting for the new camera to arrive.

One month ago I realised that I needed a smaller camera because I wanted all my photos to be high quality without having to bring with me the massive Canon 700D everywhere. At the same time, I had to admit that I had never properly learned how to use a DSLR camera, but I couldn’t live without manual settings because I like to have control on the light. So, I put my Canon on Depop and a lovely girl bought it. I transferred the money from Paypal to my debit card and ordered straight away the Olympus PEN E-PL8 on Titanpics.com, a website with lovely reviews, for 529€ instead of 619€. It’s arrived in 24 hours!!!!! I’m so pleased with their service and I’m gonna buy from them in the future. Thumbs up!

Now that I have a camera again, I’ll be able to drop blog posts regularly but the schedule is gonna change slightly: this month you are going to have one blog post per week, every Wednesday. This is linked to my holiday plans. In fact, at the end of next week, I go to Moena (Trentino Alto – Adige, Italy) with my family and I need to study for my International Human Rights Law exam (#Uni #funtimes).

I hope you don’t mind! See you next week with a beauty review 😀

What are your plans for August?

 

 

// Ciao ragazze! Scusatemi per non aver pubblicato nulla per una settimana, ma ho venduto la mia Canon EOS 700D e non avevo ancora la macchina fotografica nuova.

Un mese fa mi sono resa conto che la Canon non era più adatta alle mie esigenze. Comprata per fare belle foto e video su YouTube, non ho mai imparato ad usarla e il mio computer ha così poca memoria che è impossibile importare anche solo di 10 minuti di video. Volevo una macchina più piccola e leggera con l’opzione manuale, in modo da regolare la luce come piace a me, così sono ricaduta sull’Olympus PEN E-PL8. Ho messo in vendita la mia Canon su Depop e ho iniziato a rispondere a tutti i perditempo che mi chiedevano informazioni, finché una ragazza l’ha comprata. Ho dovuto aspettare qualche giorno per il trasferimento dei soldi da Paypal alla mia carta e poi ho ordinato l’Olympus PEN su Titanpics.com, un sito di cui avevo letto ottime recensioni, che la vendeva a 529€ (invece di 619€). In più c’era scritto che avevano il magazzino interno per la gestione degli ordini, per cui sapevo che avrebbero rispettato i tempi di consegna e l’avrei avuta tra le mie mani prima di partire per la montagna. È arrivata in 24 ore, non potevo crederci!!!! Sono rimasta davvero piacevolemente sorpresa dal servizio. 

Ora che ho di nuovo una macchina fotografica, posso tornare a pubblicare post regolarmente, ma con un leggero cambio nella programmazione: per tutto agosto avrete un solo post a settimana, ogni mercoledì. Questa decisione è legata al fatto che alla fine della settimana prossima andrò a Moena (Trentino Alto – Adige) con la mia famiglia e dovrò studiare per il mio esame di Tutela internazionale dei diritti fondamentali. 

Ci vediamo la prossima settimana con una recensione! Se anche voi avete una Olympus Pen, potete usare il codice “ESTATEPEN” su  www.shop.olympus.it per acquistare tracolle, borse e custodie Olympus Pen con 25% di sconto. 😀

Voi avete programmi particolari per agosto?

  • Oh, I was actually thinking of investing in this camera (well, not right now, but in the future) because I’m taking all my pictures with an iPhone and I hate the way they look! I would love to know what you think of it once you’ve properly tested it!

    Ah! I’ve just recently bought a new camera too!! I’ve heard such great things about the Olympus pen 7 but you’ve got the even newer one. I bet it’s amazing! I got the Canon EOS M10 and it makes such a difference having a decent camera x

    • This is my first one from Olympus, I’ve always had Canon cameras. We’ll see 😀

  • That is such a beautiful camera. I am looking for something like this because it looks like the perfect size to travel with. As for August plans, the family and I will be taking a little vacation in a couple weeks so I’m exciting because it has been a crazy summer. Hope you’re having a great summer! xx
