.....so I decide to use it.

I have been Kodak orthodox for a while now. I had a DX7440 with 4x optical zoom, 4mp and a super optical view finder. Craved a longer lens so I bought the Z7590 5mp and 10x optical. Very nice but too bulky for any of my pockets (perhaps Capt. Kangaroo). Gave DX 7440 to my girl friend who had simlar feelings about her DX7590 with its 10x optical 5mp.

Bought myself a z730 (same as dx7440 but 5mp).

I still felt when I had my 4x I wished I had my 10x and when I had my 10x I regreted leaving my Oly T-con at home.

Final decision, replace myVerizon cell phone that fell into sink with 1" of water or get a new camera. Cell phone dried out and works so I picked up a DMC-TZ1 last night and now I have a 10x that fits in my pocket and there is still room for my hand! The camera is about the size of my Z730!!

Some sample shots:

When your focus is off douse it with some posterization!

That's a great shot bill! Glad the camera won out. I almost bought my wife a TZ1 but decided on the FX01 for the 28mm lens. Keep on posting shots.

Hi Bill,

I like your new pictures. I am especially impressed with your goose. Beautiful shot! I love the brilliance of his/her blue eyes. You really captured some nice shots.

Thank you for sharing them with us.
