Dave,

I liked your gallerys, there was several photos that were very impressive to me. One was a sunset (FZ30 gallery), and the other was a black and white of some boats on a stream (945 gallery). Reminds me of the days when when we used to row the boats with oars. What name did you call your boats? Though, I thought your 945 gallery was great, the FZ30 also did a very impressive job in your hands, for what it is.

Both galleries are good. Did you just get the FZ30 and how do you like it? I'm not formiluar with the 945 so I don't know how they compare. What do you think?

Cheer for the comments.

I did like the 945, very nice shots and easy to use; alas my eldest daughter managed to snatch it out of my partners hand and it is now in bits. The next day I got the fz30.

I had recommended the fz10 to my fatherin law and did like its handling, hence my choice for the fz30. I wondered about an SLR, but knowing what Im like would have spent all spare cash from there on in on new kit, and as a teacher there isnt that much spare cash about.

I do like the fz30, but do get frustrated from the number of shots that I miss, this is probabally down to the way I handle it.

I nearly always shoot in colour, but have in mind the shots I want in black and white, which I do in post processing. I prefer B&W for old buildings and nearly always for portraits.

I want to try my hand at some close up shots and have just bought a +4 and +5, but the results are not too good yet. Having seen some of the stunning results on here I may well go for a raynox or similiar.

anyways, time to go sit in the sun

I have the 6T and the Ratnox 250 but have as yet to learn how to use them. The 250 has a very shallow DOF and is harder for me to use. I shake a lot and have to have a tripod for it so I haven't used it enough to get good with it. Keep on posting those pictures, I enjoy seeing them.
