    I started taking pictures when I got my first camera, around age 6 (It was a 2.1 megapixel HP Photosmart 635). I really started to get into it when I recieved a Nikon S570 Compact (still one of the best compacts out there for the money IMO) and started to fiddle with those settings of "ISO" and "Light Metering". With that, I was hooked. Even more so when my father pulled out his two old Olympus OM-1 film cameras. After rebuilding one of them (don't ask) I used for the entire summer of 2012, adjusting the focus, aperture and shutter speed by hand. By the end, I was left feeling the need for a digital camera that could deliver the same feel. Unfortunately, a DSLR was out of the question (I was 16 and didn't have $1000 lying around) and when I asked for a manual camera at the store, the man brought me a Leica M9 (wonderful, but the price....) I finally settled on the Micro Four Thirds line, deciding on the E-PL2 because of the price and the fact it was the last generation to have the built in flash. I owe more photos to this camera than any other, including some of the best photos in our school's yearbook, stunning action shots of rowing and breathtaking shots of the Grand Canal in Venice.
    By the way, if you are still reading this, I applaud you.
