    Hello everyone! :D During these vacations I went to Guadalajara, Mexico to visit some family. I got the Olympus around the first week of December, so I've had it a little over a month now. I still haven't messed around with all the settings or filters, but from what I've used I've been happy. What I love the most is the image stabilization. I've been trying slower shutter speeds to keep the ISO low, and pictures still come out clear. The only thing I wish I had was high video bit rate, but videos look good when there is a lot of sunlight, very sharp.

    Oh, another thing that kept bothering me was the lens cap from the 12-50mm lens. It kept falling off. I actually lost it. I was at the bus stop waiting to go to the mall. When I got to the mall I realized I didn't have the lens cap anymore. When I got back to my cousins house I retraced my steps, and I found the lens cap in the middle of the road. It still snaps onto the lens, but the Olympus logo fell off. lol. I also lost it in Vegas, but it made it's way back to me.

    Here are some pictures from my stay in Mexico. Some of these were posted in the image thread, but thought I would share the entire set here.

    Shutter speed on this image is 1/6. I was testing the shutter speed in the car to see how they would come out, and I really liked this one.

    And these are the ones from Mexico. I also have to import the pictures from Disneyland, and Las Vegas. As soon as they are up I'll share them with you guys. :D I know I have a picture that was handheld for one second, and it came out sharp!
