A stroll with FZ50
Mar 16, 2013

An afternoon stroll while the sun made a brief  appearance. Walk to the promenade, about 1/2 mile, past the White Church, down the promenade and back across the bridge in Witch Wood. A total of about 1.5 miles, with several stops to use the trusty FZ50

Looking back from the promenade - tonemapped

Looking over 100yds of sand dunes/grass toward something modern

At the water's edge - cropped and pp

Heading back - tonemapped

Lodge House roof  at start of private driveway

Private drive shrubbery - leading to Witch Wood railway bridge

By the bridge

Smashing series Stuart. Looks like your stroll was very successful photographically. I liked them all.

My favorite!

Thank you for the link also. Hurrah for the FZ50!

Even though my 7-month old FZ200 takes breathtakingly sharp photos - I would mortgage the house if panasonic ever married the FZ50's very nicely damped manual lens w/ the FZ200's (or newer) technology.

Stuart, I enjoyed viewing this series of carefully selected and composed images, a lovely variety of line, texture and color. The FZ50 looks and feels like a camera should.

Mr Ichiro Kitao of Panasonic, please update the FZ50. The ergonomics in a superzoom remain unsurpassed.

Thanks Z. Bought secondhand, the FZ50 is an amazing camera and  fits like a glove. Although limited in ISO, the IQ is simply outstanding. Oh for an FZ500

Thanks John. A simple, local walk by the sea guaranteed to have something of interest well within the range of the FZ50.

Thanks Bruno. The walk took an hour, with plenty of pauses for photography. I probably spent more time sat at my PC using PSE11. Think I need to change the balance a little

Thanks Mark. The White Church is an amazing feature to have won the footrest step. At times it looks almost like a mosque/mshining glowing in the sun.

Thanks Dave. I'm with you, they could call it the FZ Infinity, there'd be no need for another model

Nice shots and a pleasure to view- I felt like I was on the walk.  That's the magic of the FZ50- it's like walking through a door into the scene.

Thanks Ronald, that's the effect I hoped for. I'm conscious that we live in a very pleasant  place and that having the sea close by is something to  be appreciated.  Also that I need to get my tut out of the door for fresh air and exercise
