At long, long last, I have bought a new camera. Not the big, technical Digital SLR I had first fallen head over heels for but a slick little number that fits nicely into my pocket. It pays to wait it would seem.
My Dad has always had really nifty camera gear and over the weekend, apart from going to the SBA seminar, I had a go with some of his stuff. Yes, there was the Canon looking all gorgeous and shiny screaming, buy me now!!! But then there was this tiny little thing, sleek, uncomplicated and with all the oomph of some of its bigger digital brothers. Hmmm, I thought, perhaps this would be the way to go after all.
So let me introduce you to 'Little P'. He is a Panasonic SZ 1 with 10x Optical Zoom, Leica Lens and 16 megapixels, (plus, the price was incredible, always a bonus)!! Well goody, whatever that all means. Dad and 'Husband' reassuringly state that this technical jargon is a good thing and my pictures will be gorgeous. Don't know about that fellas, I'm no Mario Testino, have you seen my photos lately?
|'Little P', all ready to go!!|
In order to improve my photo taking skills I have set up a daily, (or weekly, or monthly, or whenever I can) photo journal on Blipfoto. At least I will get lots of practice.
