View Full Version : I had to try my new camera

I know that being a bad photographer canít be helped by a better camera but I thought I give it a try. I bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC FX-30 because one one hand it has a so-called image stabilizer (maybe I translate it wrong) and I hoped it would help me with my mixed and shaken pictures. Plus it has a Leica lens with a 28 mm wide angle and a better optical zoom than my old Canon.
I donít like flashy pictures too much so I tried the first ones without flash- and I think it works excellent even with bad light, bringing out the mystery in Tigris and Filou:

Oh Barbara!

What a treat on Sunday morning :D Tigris and Filou are so beautiful! Eve is smitten and sends kitty hugs and major big kisses to her sweetie Tigris :D

She says: "More pictures pleez...." :rolleyes:

Nothing makes a camera work better than fabulous subjects.....such as Tigris and Filou.

Hello boys! Your new camera has captured the esesnce of each boy and his personality...

Filou...arrogant, aloof, ready to spring into action...

Tigris...more mellow but still mysterious and self-confident!

Barbara, those are excellent pictures! In focus and everything! :D They really do capture the boys' personalities.
Remember when Filou gave me almost exactly that look? "How dare you touch me?!"

Your camera takes nice pics of these kissable kitty faces, I love them :)
Now we want to see more pictures :D

You really captured their personalities here! They are two very handsome boys. :)

Congratulations on your new camera! Wow, a Leica lens! I'm sure you can tell the difference. Now you start playing! :D

Eve wanted to tell Tigris that she's napping in her basket and dreaming about Tigris, her Mystery Man in Munich :D

Those are enchanting photos of Filou and Tigris and you are certainly right that shadow gives them an air of mystery and makes them even better looking than ever.
We are looking forward to more photos of those enchanting Cats!!!!!

Looking forward to more pictures of your gorgeous models. I'm sending both of them scritchies and tummy rubs for sitting so nicely and patiently. Would you deliver them for me?
