My first SLR!

Bought myself my own SLR...or something like it.

Thought I should spend my winnings (gambling) on something that I've always wanted but never could afford. So I splurged on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1.



I LOVE it.



It's supposedly the smallest and lightest SLR camera in the world. Of course, I got the white version of it. Pretty <3 I'm so obsessed with it and take pictures every chance I get. The quality of the pictures is near pro with only a quick point a shoot. I may have to make adjustments in the future with white balance, shutter speed and such (which are all a foreign language to me) to capture the pictures the way I desire. I have no background with cameras whatsoever, although, my mom is an ex-camera assistant. But, that's like a century ago. Planning to study the instruction book when I have the time. Here are some sample pictures I took recently:

Taken at a bar in Shibuya. My friend and I toasting with our cassis orange cocktails.



Near the Marui building in Shinjuku. My friend pretending to be yonsama.



A bunch of rilakkuma and korillakuma lying around inside a UFO catcher.


Sorry, I'm not very good at reviewing electronics so, I'll save you from confusion. But, I do recommend this camera. Especially for beginners like me.

Ready to take on the world with my new buddy! :D

Oooh the white is nice!
I got a new camera too.. Olympus E-PL1.
Considered the GF1. I chose looks over functionality ha.

And I see your long hair is back?

Also, no, I don't live in Japan. I live in England but I visited Japan earlier this year.

I have the baby version of this: Lumix LX3. It's not nearly as great as yours, but my boyfriend bought it for me so I didn't wanna ask for too much. I also have a Canon T1i.. Maybe when I see you again, you could teach me now to use both >__<;;

I love the tiny hat you're wearing <3

also: Hooray for that cool camera : D
Reminds me of the fact that I need one as well. I stopped taking pictures with my ol' digicam, because it makes me look really hideous DX
