Better image

’Maters are bloomin’ now (and have been for a couple of weeks).

Hey, it’s really a cool camera…. Here’s a better still….

New-cam report

Big news: new toy tool…a small point-and-shoot still camera that shoots 720p high-res video, too, and at 16:9 if you want (I think—not really my knowledge realm). Well, if you have a big storage thingy-card-deal. And we do. Two of them. 16-gig each. I think the battery will run down before the hours of video that would fill each card are recorded.

And what is it? A Panasonic Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 that DPReview calls the first camera with AVCHD Lite HD recording. Does that make your heart beat faster?

Me, I’m groovin’ on the 25mm ultra wide angle lens. The pansy-heart-picture is from the new-cam, but it’s been thissed & thatted, so I doubt you can tell much. Just trust me! It’s a lovely camera!
