Portmeirion, Wales

I’ve just come back from a weekend away in Wales. Part of the purpose of the trip was to test my new Canon EOS M. I always take a camera away with me when I’m camping but generally, I err on the side of caution. Not wishing to take any one of my expensive cameras, I’ve always opted for my Olympus Tough, which is more or less indestructible. But I’ve often been disappointed with its poor performance in picture quality. So I have now bought a canon EOS M for taking away specifically on camping trips.

To round off the weekend in Wales, we visited Port Meirion. A miniature Italian village hidden away on the coast of Wales near Porthmadog. We walked around on a particularly dull day – unfortunately. However I was pleased with how it performed. Even in the low light – the images were sharp – the noise was relatively low; when zooming in quite close picture quality is good. The EOS M is an 18 MegaPixel camera, so it should perform well on these point. It needs to be road tested in respect to durability- some of my trip are especially rough and it will need to stand up to potential weather and accidents. So maybe future trips will tell me more. So far I am very satisfied with it’s performance.

These images of Portmeirion are quite stylised; at the moment I am playing around with several new effects trying to create new styles. These were edited in Photoshop from RAW which the EOS M is also capable of shooting in.
