Re: Get the panasonic

You have great skills, but look at a smallish crop in this nice image- no details, it looks like a painting. If you ever do a A4 print, you can tell it's made using a cellphone.

Somewhat of a wasted opportunity.

Even a tz200 would have done a better job here, more details and dinamic range.

Every little bit helps, no? But of course, you will need to learn to control the camera to achieve optimal results.

Your images remind me of my first camera, a 6 megapixel compact from 2006. I have nice pics with that camera, but now i use a couple of rx100 cameras. They're as close to a real camera as i can get using something that's pocketable.

Here's a couple from me:
