Photo equipment

I have recently been contemplating my photographic equipment. At this moment in time I practically only use my mobile phone to take pictures because it is handy but I would love to use a camera. I do have an old Canon EOS 450D DSLR with two lenses (the 18-55 mm it came with and a 28-135 mm I purchased later and which I ended up using as default) but it is a bit too big and heavy to lug around when traveling so it basically spends its time hanging out in my closet.

I have been looking at mirrorless cameras and am leaning towards the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (https://getolympus.com/digitalcameras/omd/e-m10-mark-iii.html) as I still think it is a good idea to have interchangeable lenses and I feel a compact would not be much different from using my phone anyway. One reason I have been looking at the Olympus is the price vs. the mostly positive reviews I have been reading. I am also attracted by the kind of retro-look of the camera (especially the silver version). I would love to hear any comments you might have on any mirrorless cameras.

Finally just to let you know what I’ve used for the pictures on the blog. Up until the end of 2018 the pictures were taken with an Honor 8 mobile and now I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S9.
