Sponsored post: New camera, new directions

This post is sponsored by Canon but the words and opinions are my own.
This is my desk this morning. On top of the pile of unread magazines is my new camera from Canon, the EOS M which is their first mirrorless compact system camera, meaning it’s small like a compact point-and-shoot but the picture quality is equal to bigger DSLR cameras.


It comes with two lenses, a pancake and a zoom lense, but is of course compatible with other Canon EOS lenses as well (using an adapter).

I was invited to Canon’s office yesterday for a product briefing, and after going through all the features and doing some test shooting, I can definitely see that this camera will change the way this blog is made. I can now take my own pictures, with a quality that meets the standards for what I want to show here. I’m not a photographer, but this camera makes it super easy to take good photos. So from now on I can take you with me when I go to fun events, or travel to exciting places, or just see something nice!
For obvious reasons, the photo below is NOT taken with the EOS M. I used my iphone, and the light is crappy here today. But from now on, I’ll be able to show you good photos! I’m beginning next week with a trip to Copenhagen, and I know there will be lots of great stuff to share from there.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].


  • Can’t wait to see the pictures from the Copenhagen trip!

  • Wow – hope its great!! 🙂

  • Hi Emma

    Loved your post today at A Cup of Joe!


  • Åh, God kväll, tror jag just hittade min nya favorit blogg ^^

  • I guess you mean about the usb? What were the designers thinking?! Lol!

  • It is. I tried it out by shooting the same pic that I took with my iphone, and it looks awesome! Although the room was very dark, it looks totally great and very clear.

  • awesome! I’ve been wondering about that camera – looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

  • Men, lucky you 🙂 Ha en bra trip till Copenhamn: Can’t wait to see al the beautiful pictures you will make.


  • Gillar alla dina inlägg, helt makalös inspirationskälla att titta in här då och då!

    Trevlig helg,
    Kram Malin

  • AAHHHHH wannaaaaaaa haveeeeee

    Fantastiskt! Vill gärna se före/efter bilder 🙂 Är det ett fast objektiv i grundutförandet?

    Och tänk den dag kameran är kompatibel att även ladda upp bilderna direkt på bloggen ;)!

  • Hur menar du med fast objektiv? Det är ett pancake-objektiv, 22 mm, och ett zoom-objektiv på 18-55 mm.
    Ja, jag sa faktiskt det häromdagen, att det hade varit fint om kameran hade haft wifi så att man slapp sladden, och uppladdningen gick helt automatiskt. Det finns ju kameror som kan det har jag för mig?

    Att det är fast brännvidd 🙂 Det kommer nog bli riktigt bra ljusstyrka med det objektivet!

  • Aha, du menar så. 🙂 Japp, det är riktigt bra ljusstyrka i det. Jag är impad!

  • I would LOVE to treat you to a coffee if you have a free moment to spare while you are here in Copenhagen! I was so bummed that I was out of town when you came for Blog’nhagen!

  • Wow! Kanske en kamera för mig….måste nämligen skaffa en ny. Tar bilder med en pocket och är inte nöjd. Det här måste jag testa:) Kram

  • Can’t wait to see what beautiful images you’ll come home with! Enjoy Copenhagen!

  • Oh, that would have been lovely, but it’s only a very short trip (monday to tuesday) and I will be working. Maybe next time!

  • väntar på fortsättning (bildbevis) med spänning!

  • Perfekt!! Ser fram emot dina bilder framöver! Ska bli superkul att följa!

  • Whaaaa amazing I would love to have a canon one day ! Enjoy!!
