    You also need to find a material for making a pinhole lens, which is very thin yet very strong, you also need make sure the hole you made is close to prefect circle. It is a very serious project, it is not primary school art and craft project.
    Sounds like less of a pain, and more fun to do it via trial and error.

    A good photo's 45% you, 45% practice & 10% equipment. A bad photo share the same ratio.

    My last roll of film was shot 10 years ago, have done with it, after shooting film for more than thirty years on small, medium and larger format. Never want to look back again.

    I just got my EM1 today @ 2100 standard bundle 16GB card extra battery

    Guy where will be good place to buy a good bag for it? Sim Lim or Funan ? what will be the bag price ranging?

    And do i required a cleaning kit? what should i look for in the kit? oh and the LCD on the EM1 should i go place a screen protector over it? will it make the touchscreen less sensitive after that? For SD card why do we go for Class 10 and above? because of the transfer speed to our computer is it? Sorry to post all this noob question...

    Battery grip is for easier vertical image shooting and better camera grip handling but em1 that original handler is good ao i think battery grip is not necessary.
    As for camera bag, Ona series or Billingham my choice , price range 150+ till 400++ . Go see n try it ...

    As for the screen protector question, I feel that there is no need for a screen protector, but if you need the piece of mind, go for it but I highly doubt it will affect the sensitivity of the touchscreen.
    As for your memory card question, class 10 is recommended as it helps you when you do continuous shooting on your EM1, allowing you to shoot more before the buffer needs to stop

    For bags and screen protector, try TK Photo at Funan or Cathay at Peninsula Plaza. They have the widest selections. A decent one for your m43 Olympus would probably be about $80-$150 from brands like ThinkTank, Lowepro, Kata, Manfrotto and Crumpler. The Ona and Billingham rnges are the more luxury priced ones.

    Yes, both are class 10. You should get the SDHC as your camera takes a SD card, not a micro SD card, unless you have a adapter to use the micro SD card. I'd advice you to get 2 32GB cards instead of a single 64gb card as it will be more reliable using 2 cards and 2 cards will be handy if one card fails.

    I second this. If you wait til you fill up that 64GB card before transferring to your computer and backing up, if the card fails before you get a chance to transfer you'll have lots of lost memories.
