Taken on its own merits, the Olympus PEN E-PL10 is, just like its predecessors, a great camera for travellers, vloggers and fashionistas. However, the problem is exactly that: the E-PL10 is just like its predecessors.

That makes it increasingly difficult to take the Olympus PEN E-PL10 on its own merits, because those merits come with a 2020 price tag – and almost the exact same merits are available on the 2019 model, which comes with a 2019 price tag.

Still, we’ve been big fans of the E-PL (‘PEN Lite’) line since the E-PL7 – and this latest iteration is undoubtedly one of the best travel cameras as well as one of the best vlogging cameras.

Home electronics – Buy Once, Cry Once

PART 2. In my previous column (Buy Once, Cry Once), I considered areas in your A/V budget where you should consider splurging when building a system. The categories I listed—projection screens, amplifiers, speakers—are ones that can provide years of enjoyment, but don’t see regular or major upgrades. I also covered categories like subwoofers that have a real impact on a system’s overall performance, and ones like pre-wiring that can strongly affect a system’s future serviceability.
