I'm very fond of my new camera, Olympus OM-D E-M5. This is the flagship of Olympus' Micro 4/3 line-up. It is a very small camera, but while it looks like a 1970's film camera, it's a real system camera.

After the initial enthusiasm, I stopped bringing my DSLR on game nights. One reason was the size: with my backbag full of games, there was simply no space for the camera.

Armed with the very small Panasonic 20mm pancake lens (equivalent of 40mm on full-frame camera, so it's a slightly wide normal lens), OM-D is a very small camera and much easier to carry - almost pocket-sized.

Combined with high ISO capabilities and very good in-body image stabilizer, getting good photos is fairly easy. The Brass: Lancashire photo above has a shutter speed of 1/8 s, and it's shot handheld (well, elbows on table). It's not the sharpest photo ever, but good enough for the 1000x750 size. I know I can't do that with my Canon.
