Borrowed a camera

I borrowed a Canon EOS 450D twin lens kit this weekend, and have been taking lots of photos. It's a fun camera and I'd love to win one in a competition some time! This is not to say that I don't love the TZ8 I just got - that's an awesome little camera. But I do like toys and could see myself owning many, many cameras one day.

I think I'm going to have to sell my old Sony H2 shortly. It's got a lot of life left in it but it can't compete with the convenience of the TZ8!

New camera

The good folks at the Last Ocean Charitable Trust sent me a Panasonic TZ8 camera as a prize for being a finalist in the Last Ocean film contest. It's very cool! 12x zoom in a compact body, solid metal construction, and a nice, wide 25mm equivalent at the wide end of the zoom. It's a very nice camera indeed!

At the river

Some photos from a week ago. Note the awesome matching family t-shirts from Threadless (NZ$61 for 4 t-shirts including postage!)
