Olympus E-520

July 29th, In Reviews, by , Comment

There has been a bit of back and forth about the look of the Olympus E-520, some have called it plasticy and oddly shaped. For me; I am happy to call the look Nostalgic! The design gives me a bit of a 1980′s mixed with modern funk feel. This camera has a rugged, strong plastic [...]

The Canon Legria HF200 Video Camera Review

July 14th, In Reviews, by , Comment

The HF 200 is a video camera designed for amateurs but equipped with many professional features such as a mike input, adjustable audio attenuator and exposure settings.

All pictures displayed below were taken on location at Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Safari Lodge, a 2.5 hour drive from Cape Town.
