I’ve been playing around with a new camera, today. The Panasonic LumixDMC-GF1. I got tired of crappy photos, had been thinking about getting a digital SLR, but settled on one of the new bread of Micro Four Thirds cameras. Interchangeable lenses, but with an SLR sized sensor and a small size owing to no mirror. With the "pancake" lens I opted for to start with, the low light cababilities are very impressive. Here’s Rotor, 11 years old today. Click for the larger quality version.
Yep, 11 years old, and nobody can believe it. He weighs 80% of what he did several years ago, is way more agressive, jumps around like crazy, and just refuses to act his age. Folks: get your dogs of grains, sugars, and non-foods. While I don’t do perfect (we feed Evo, plus he gets lots of chicken & beef stock & liver), it’s damn good. Here’s another.
The camera also does impressive depth of field shots, automatically.
Well, I’m looking forward to creating some good photographs for the blog. Still a lot to learn but this camera makes it fun and easy.
