I've got a new camera. I only got my first digital camera 8 years ago (I still have it, it was a 5mp Kodak), and since then I've loved my Fuji FinePix cameras. And I've almost exclusively used my iPhone 5 camera for the last two years.
I didn't think I would ever buy a "big"camera. I was happy with the images from my iPhone, and my Fuji, when I remembered to pick it up.
Then I bought the Olympus OMD EM10. Even on auto, even "happy snapping", I can see the difference.
Sure, using the camera you have with you is better than not capturing the memory.
But the real eye opener to me was when I printed some photos at home on my picturemate. The iPhone photos were all blown out and grainy, but the photos from the Olympus were amazing.
A small piece of me was sad after seeing those awful photos printed out, thinking I had wasted all my photos from the last two years, but then I realised that I still had the memories captured, so I'd just have to print the photos a bit smaller.
Seeing nice photos has inspired me to pick up my camera again. Even if I do drive my family nuts following them around, happy snapping.
What camera do you use to capture memories?
