my new and much upgraded camera...the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28!
he arrived today via FedEx...and i charged the battery and took it for a test spin this evening. you can see those photos by clicking HERE. there will be nicer shots on the blog later, but I couldn't wait to make the introduction:
isn't he cute?
now, i have NEVER been one to anthropomorphize my belongings. i have friends who do this...they name their cars, their computers, their christmas trees...but i've never been one of those.
i'm not a materialistic girl. i know that our possessions are not what make us happy, or whole, or better than anybody else. i don't get jealous of the items my friends and neighbors own.
this little guy has already made quite an impression on me. this little fellow packs quite a punch for the price! he's light but doesn't feel cheap, he's got a great big eye that can see things far, far away...he feels great in my little hand, i can control all the right bits i need, but when i want to be lazy he'll do everything for me. he brings details into sharp focus, he sounds cool, and he takes some badasz photos & video right out of the box. *sigh*
i hate to say this, but...
i think i'm in love...
and, i think i'll call him....zed, as in "f zed 28." like the guy in the review video says it, down below.
okay, okay, i might be just kidding about the zed part. i mean, let's not get carried away here. i may have a new crush on my fz28, but i'm still not one of those people.
not that there's anything wrong with that.
