I have a new
toy tool to add to my toytool box. On Sunday I picked up a Pansonic Lumix TZ7. I’ve been wanting a compact camera for a while now and the opportunity arose for me to pick it up for a very good price ($535) as a local white goods retailer was offering a cost +3% sale for emergency and corrective services staff/volunteers. From what I have done with it so far I am really impressed. Earlier in the week I had called them to see what cameras they stocked as I was looking at a few Canon compacts as well as a few Panasonic compacts, they advised they no longer stock Canon cameras, cut my choices in half 🙂 To help in my decision I made a spreadsheet up which I looked over a hundred times before Sunday Morning. It doesn’t have any manual modes, it doesn’t have raw files but it is just about exactly what I wanted.
Now I have a camera that fits in my pocket, in all my handbags, takes pretty darn good videos and macros. Very fun. It is so fun and easy that I have decided to have another crack at doing a 365 project. Last year I tried and ended up doing 75 days and I often struggled to get a unique photo. Looking at those photos now I love them so much. As you may have realised I have been in a bit of a vortex the last few/many months. I have struggled to take photos that I like or more to the point found it hard to take photos. I would have my camera with me and know the photo I wanted to take but just not get that photo as hard as I tried. The last nine months have been quite an adventure with work, life and everything else. Enough is enough and step by step, things are getting back on track.
Back to the topic at hand. I present my first 3 photos for 365 in 09/10.
My very first photo with my new camera.
July brings on the start of the Strawberry season 🙂
Today I had my lunch outside. I’ve not done that in a very long time! I took my salad, my crochet and enjoyed my 30 mins 🙂
Can I just say how much I love this.

You would take great photos with a box brownie …
I found the piccies on Flickr first, so my comments are there. Love mum
Am just catching up on your blog… congrats on the new camera. I’d love to get a good little compact, something I can take everywhere with me. Love the results you’re getting with this one.
