I finally got a new camera. There wasn’t anything *really* wrong with my old one, I was just ready for an upgrade from a 2002 Fujifilm Finepix 2800Z to a Panasonic Lumix FZ5. Holy crap, what a difference. I’m just blown away by the amount of upgrading I did for a low-ish price. The biggest differences are in the macro, features, and quality of the pictures. For example, I gice you similar shots of my wine: Finepix vs. Lumix. I can do Black and white on the camera! I can actually get close to things with the macro! I can adjust the color settings while looking at the color histogram! There’s no dirt on the lens! (But I can see the dirt in my apartment.) I could go on and on! I’ll be taking lots of pictures over the next few days to test it out (and to keep busy while my body recovers from dance.)
