Why I love my camera!

Why I love my camera

I stood in my front yard and looked at this grove of Redwoods.  Up at the tippy-top, I could see something.  I thought it was a bird.  I watched closely and saw it’s head turn.  But, I couldn’t tell what kind of bird it was.  So, I grabbed my camera and took this picture.  Oh, and just to give you an idea of the height of those trees, look at the street light/telephone pole at the bottom of the picture.

Then, I zoomed in as close as I could.

Why I love my camera

Ah, a robin.  Of course.

My camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ7.  It has 12x zoom and image stabilization.  It was new in 2006.  3 years may not be long but this is a camera I have used nearly daily for those 3 years.  It is almost a part of me.  I rarely go anywhere without it.  It may not be a fancy digiscoping rig with changeable lenses and amazing bells and whistles but it brings the birds to me and that is enough for me.
