Olympus OM-D EM10 Compact System Camera with M.Zui&hellip by Olympus

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality in your pocket., 21 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been a longtime user of Digital SLR cameras and compact mirrorless micro 4/3rds cameras as well. The image quality gap between them has shrunk to almost nothing and it comes down to a question of ergonomics. Mirrorless compact cameras like this Olympus are pocket-able in a coat and do great video. SLR's have a real viewfinder and are more comfortable to hold for a period of time and you can rent super expensive lenses if you photograph birds or planes.

Origami Paper - Pack of 20 - Handmade Lokta paper &hellip by Anglesey Paper Company
4.0 out of 5 stars Great thicker Lokta, 4 July 2014
This Lokta paper is not the very thin kind but is very strong and colourfast. This paper has long strands of fibrous material that sometimes crack through the paper during folding but does not tear.

This paper is ideally suited to simpler designs especially 3D animals and simpler insects. It is not thin enough for super complex models. It wet folds well and is much better than any non-handmade paper.
