My new toy

As much as I love my DSLR, there are many times when all I want is a little camera to tuck into my bag - ready to capture all those spontaneous precious moments in time. Since dropping my point and shoot a few months ago I have been thinking about getting myself an updated model. The old one still works, as long as the sticky tape over the battery cover holds! I received a few vouchers for my birthday, and headed off shopping for a new camera. Ive always had Canon point and shoots - easy to use and great pics. I did a little investigating online before I hit the shops, and the panasonic lumix cameras also got pretty good reviews. I found this one at Myer, for a great price and couldn't be happier.


It has lots of shooting modes (too many probably!) and the macro mode is amazing...






its simple to use, and so slim that it tucks easily not only into my bag, but even into my pocket! The fact that there is no viewfinder threw me a bit, but I guess when you are trying to get a camera more and more compact, something has to give.

Everyone is happy - now Isaac & Jacinta are the proud owners of their very own camera as well. Isaac has it all worked out, Jacinta on the other hand hasn't quiet got it...

she just likes feeling like a big person and pretending to take everyones photos..even when its not turned on - smiiiiile!
