A stroll with FZ50
6

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

Looking back across 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.

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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.

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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

Re: A stroll with 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

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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.

Re: A stroll with FZ50 - The FZ Infinity

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

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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.

Re: A stroll with FZ50

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
