About me:

Happy snapper. JPEGS do. Love my FZ50. Love recording family life.

John Miles' current gear

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
New to me Feb 2018. Has some mighty boots to fill in the FZ50 it replaces.
Bought it for survey work. It did OK. Now my Daughter uses it.
Other gear:
  • Metz 24 AF-1 Flash (Olly shoe) A small 2x AA battery flash with tilt but not rotation. It is a dedicated flash and works extremely well on the FZ50

When Daddy felt like a Pro
Taking quick succession shots between 35 and 420mm and at different EV compensations; nothing comes close. The FZ50 is twice as fast as any other camera; even in 2018.
What a piece of junk!
