So, I went and did it, after months and months of dying to get the Olympus Pen, I took the plunge and finally got the bloggiest camera in all the land.
And look, isn’t it beautiful?
I was just so tired of carrying my DSLR to events with me, I was getting frustrated at not being able to take flat lays and focus properly, but most of all, I WANTED TO SELFIE.
I’m still getting used to this little beauty, I’ve still not had chance to play with all the features yet, but I’m hoping in a few weeks I’ll have got a hang of it and faffed about with all the different filters and art modes so I can then come back and write about things I’ve learnt about the camera.

- 16.1 megapixel

Connect to your phone via Wifi.
You can connect this camera to your phone via wifi. This enables you to use your phone as a remote to take photos or you can save photos to you camera phone, which is amazing because HELLO INSTAGRAM. But getting it to connect SUCKED.
I searched and searched and searched and nothing gave me the answer. The phone was telling me it was connected. The camera was telling me it was connected. Lying dicks.
I finally got it working by going into the actual settings of the camera, clicking ‘wifi’ and making the connection ‘private’. Phew.
I’ve been researching this camera a lot, but want thing I couldn’t find – any photographs that were actually taken with the Olympus Pen E-PL7. So to put you out of your misery, here are some unedited photos I’ve taken with it:
If you have any questions about the camera, do let me know and I’ll try to answer it in a few weeks when I’ve learnt more about it!
