Although I've been pretty satisfied with my Panasonic LX5, I've been wanting to experiment with a camera that has more options. Despite its power, the LX5 is still a point and shoot at the end of the day and more manual control could be fun.
So what's the cheapest Micro Four Thirds camera I can buy today (my range is probably $300 and under for the entire kit)? Older cameras are okay (two that come to mind are the E-PL1 and NEX-3) Anything i should know about buying lenses and such?
I'm currently considering buying the Olympus E-PL1 but not sure I'm quite ready to pull the trigger on it. I need to buy a camera before October but need the following: decent low-light photos, light enough where I won't lose an arm walking around a convention floor all day, manual controls, under $600.
I'm looking to replace my stock lens for something that will perform a little better. I'd like to make it an "everyday" lens that I don't really change out that much. I don't want to start collecting lenses, I'm just looking for a better "point and shoot" experience. I don't mind losing zoom, and ideally I'd get something with better low light performance. I'd prefer to not spend any more than about $300-500, preferably in the $250 if that's possible, though I won't be surprised if it isn't......
I like how they've created the iAuto mode for beginners, but did they take away the actual settings? I want my family to be able to use the easy way, but can I still get into the ISO and aperture settings?
Anyone know if there is a way to get iPhoto to import pictures from this camera that are in the RAW format?
