I haven’t decided yet whether I will be participating in NaBloPoMo this year, but as I was sitting here weighing the pros and cons, I got an email from myfriendisKate. She forwarded today’s Gourmet Weekly pointing me to a little lex-flavoured tidbit which I completely, COMPLETELY, over-looked. (and I’m blogging about it just to cover my NaBloPoMo butt)
Olympus has a new preset on some of their cameras – cuisine. “The camera increases the saturation, sharpness and contrast settings to produce sharp, vivid images of the subject.” Along with the 1cm super-macro on the SP-560 UZ this might be one sweet feature.
Gourmet says that this feature is available on “seven of this year’s point-and-shoot cameras.” Complete with a knife & fork icon. I couldn’t find the list of all seven, but found it listed for SP-560 UZ, SP-550 UZ, SP-510 UZ, Stylus 760, Stylus 750, Stylus 820 and Stylus 740.
Dear Olympus blogger-relations team,
I would happily test drive one of these puppies for you. Don’t worry about me feeling obliged to give you a good review just because you sent me a camera. I’m not that kind of gal. I can guarantee, however, that I will test the cuisine and super-macro features until, and well after, there’s food on the lens.
Lex, food paparazzi
Oh, and since I’m writing letters…
Dear Ruth Reichl,
my friend Kate and I have decided we are your new best friends. Let’s do dinner. Call me.
