We look at some lightweight cameras perfect for everyday photography…
It’s a lot easier to carry less. On your way to and from work, on your holidays, or just out and about, less stuff means more flexibility. Less on your mind. The same goes for your camera. When you buy a camera, size and weight are important things to consider. Most people don’t need the bulk of a digital SLR, but still want vibrant, hi-resolution images. Here at Kirk’s, we’ve got solutions.
Take, for instance, the OM-D E-M5 from Olympus. The spiritual heir to the classic OM 35 mm film cameras of years gone by, the OM-D E-M5 combines a sophisticated sensor and useful features with an iconic, lightweight package. At its core is a 16-megapixel Four Thirds type sensor, permitting high-resolution images in a small footprint. 5-axis image stabilisation, shooting up to ISO 25,000 and a shooting rate of 9 fps means this camera packs a punch. You can take it anywhere and shoot almost professional-grade photographs. The OM-D E-M5 is light weight and durable, a great take-anywhere camera.
Need some extra photographic support? Despite what you may think, there are a wealth of lightweight tripods that are both easy to carry and store. The Velbon UT 43D II, for instance, is portable enough to fold up into your backpack for a weekend trip. Expanding to a full height of 5 feet from just 11 inches, the UT 43D II is perfect for the casual photographer on a space budget.
