Still enjoying my FZ35.
2

I can't afford to upgrade my cameras very often, and honestly, I probably wouldn't do it even if I could. The fact is, I'm happy with what I have, and since my cameras "ain't broke," I'm not longing to fix them.

I have a DSLR (and I admit the desire to acquire pricey lenses was something I had to squelch), but the FZ35 is my go-to camera in most situations, especially those where I have to grab a camera fast. Here are a few shots from this year.

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

Great examples of the FZ35 in action.

Still enjoying mine and still learning. My images continue to improve as I become more adventurous and understand the nuances of a great camera.

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

Beautiful shots!  And I agree that the FZ35 is a little gem.  I would still be using it today if it wasn't for the fact that someone gave me my FZ150 as a gift.  Now my son is the happy owner of the FZ35.

I really like the way you processed the first shot.

Me too, still enjoying FZ35.

I test the FZ1000 in a Montréal camera's dealer and this camera is good but not excellent... and the price is big.

So, i have the Canon Powershot G1X first edition for low light situations

and my "old" but great FZ35.

Here some pictures:

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

A nice camera but cannot cope with fast shooting, especially with RAWs. Really slow by today's standards. I still enjoy it but regrettably rarely because of the slowness. User interface is generally very good. The advantage of owning one camera is you get to know its strengths and weaknesses intimately. I still screw on the lt55 http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/optional_accessories/tele_lens/ occasionally and enjoy the camera's daylight output. Weight is very light and far less than today's superzooms which always feels good in the hand and in the bag. I would love more reach and speed without quality and weight compromises. But I think we all would. Camera is a good all-rounder that is mostly enjoyable to use, especially after lugging around heavy gear.

Nice and memorable shots. In fact, the FZ35 was the first camera I used and I liked it very much. When the FZ 150 was announced, I was enamoured by its zoom and sold my FZ35(lo) Now I regret having sold that. It is a little gem. Now FZ 150 got replaced by FZ 200. As I cannot keep all my cameras with me(I have to face the music from my wife), I am in the habit of selling what I have, whenever I want to buy a new camera. I think enough for the personal information. Keep it up and post shots whenever possible from FZ 35. Wish you a nice time.

Wonderful images Susan. You have a great eye for composition and color. I love when I hear about someone who is enjoying their gear and not being so anxious to upgrade. I totally agree if it aint broke don't fix it. Thanks for sharing these.

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

I agree,  if I spent more time scouting and shooting I would spend less time google eyed over new cameras.  Look forward to more of your posts.

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

When your camera can be an instrument of expression as your FZ35 is for you, you hardly need more.

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

Sold mine to purchase the Canon SX40HS. BIG MISTAKE! I liked the Panasonic FZ35 much better! Focus is more reliable and images were mostly excellent.

Bit the bullet and bought the FZ1000. Time will tell on this one!

Re: Still enjoying my FZ35.

Wonderful, imaginative set, Susan. I think you have no need whatsoever to upgrade. GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome/Sickness) is a slippery slope. Hope I've got to the bottom of it now or is tha the top Without doubt, it is the operator behind the lens that is most significant as you've amply shown here.

I'm still smiling at GAS.....

.....and, for other reasons, the many encouraging responses. I'm still enjoying another Panasonic camera as well, and will post about that one soon. Thank you so much.
