New Travel Companion

During the Hong Kong jaunt I purchased a new camera I could take along for the trip - an Olympus Pen EP-1 Micro-four thirds.

The camera's main selling point, aside from its oh-so-cool retro styling, is its micro four-thirds format. It uses a sensor similar to a DSLR but it doesn't have a prism inside, hence the size is compact-ish and svelte. It has 12 megapixels of resolution, and can take 720p video.
