Ripe strawberries using the "Portible Lighting Studio" for dummies.

Not too bad for a $30.00 total package.

Ibid and won on2 similar setups from Ebay, 30" colapsible cube with 2 30 watt lights using screw inflourescents. One set even has a camera stand (a table top mono pod with a "U" shaped base.

Thank you berry-muchMacnite!

I notice that when I open my pictures with internet explorer they tend to look softish, but when I open them with elements 4 they look sharper and when posted here and made smaller they look still sharper!:?

My girl friend has bought a TZ-5 and is positive that my 5mp TZ1 is sharper than her 9mp TZ5. I was ready to give her my TZ1 for her TZ5 despite the fact that a TZ1 is getting harder to find and cost more than her TZ5:?

After doing some internet surfing we found a TZ1 for sale in Brooklyn, NY for under $200.00 so she bought after justifying the urgency of having 2 10x optical zoom cameras by the fact that one starts at 28mm (a must for every sane photographer) and the other has a tele-elmarit rather than a elmar zoom lens (another critical factor).:?:?

Nice pic. I can not even begin to think what is a "Portable lighting studio"...

I wonder how people cope with these little cameras without a viewfinder. For convenience I would love a tiny Lumix in my pocket but I find it hard to take a photo without an eye piece. I wish they made one of these Lumixes with an eye piece!

I use FZ18 which is small but not THAT small and handy to carry around at all times.

Bill, Can you postpictures taken with the TZ5 and the TZ1? Both the same picture of course. I think it would be interesting to see a side-by-side comparison. For all of us here.

Only if...............

you buy me a TZ-5!

I only have a TZ-1 but my girl friend has a TZ-5 but fell in love with my TZ-1 and its elmarit lens and was lucky to still find a new one for sale. Next time we go out shooting I will try to do some comparison shots.
