Why do some trees shed their leaves sooner than others? Posted by Picasa

This is the latest in the Panasonic FZ range. It has an 8MP sensor with a 12x zoom for best quality photographs but also has a facility to reduce the sensor size to increase the zoom. This equates to 15x at 5MP and 19.1x at 3MP (equal to 669mm on a 35mm lens). This would be of little use on a walk around camera without the built in anti-shake which does a very good job. The lens is a good quality one badged as a Leica. Both the moon shot and an earlier post "A gap in the trees" were taken hand held at this maximum zoom. I don't want to give the impression that the anti-shake is infallible, as you still need good technique when taking a shot, but the results can be very good. I am very impressed with it and would recommend it to anyone thinking about a new camera. All I need now is some decent weather and to find some little furrry animals out in daylight!

The squirrel went that way and wouldn't stop for me to take a photo no matter how much I begged. My new Panasonic FZ30 has a fantastic 19x zoom but even that didn't help.  Posted by Picasa
