The camera I am currently using is the micro four thirds Panasonic GF1. I did a lot of research and contemplated for many days before buying it because there were just so many good cameras to choose from.
The Panasonic GF1 is very easy to use and much lighter than a DSLR. It also captures amazing photos. However, you have to have a steady hand because the camera body does not have picture stabilisation. Here are a couple of edited photos that I took with this camera. Hope you enjoy them!
