Ok, time for me to hit the roa... ehhh button.
I just arrived here, searching for information about my (99% shure..) new TZ30 camera.
Atm im using a TZ3 that i realy like (although it has some flaws).
Some information about me:
How i ended up here??
Well, it started about 33 years ago when i took the decision to buy a Nikon from my first salary
(my father had a nikon so....)
Well, that darn shop owner realy messed me up with the question:
WHY Nikon??? and WHAT kind of photografer do you WANT to be??
i still hate that guy, but as all know, love and hate are close
to get short, after over one hour explaination why hé!! thought i was a OLYMPUS personality... i went home with a "Olympus OM2n "on trial"
I never gave it back, and loved it for many years, and the irritating guy kept on smiling when i entered the shop for more films (Fuji) and a snd OM2n (and many olympus lenses) so i could always take 2 different films with me.
Than Olympus scr#$#@# me by NOT developing a digi-body for my lenses,
excuse??-cant be done- that in my opinion is B.S.
prove? i bought a cheapo TRUST digibody, saw it open, did some remodeling, fitted a olympus ring, and WHAM... i created my own digicam for my 35mm.
All well end well?? nope quality was stil TRUST and 28mm become somewhat 55mm, my 50mm went about 100mm etc etc. but it was nice playing with it
I made a promise to myself NEVER ever going back to Olympus. . . .
So finaly made it in the digiworld by buying a... panasonicTZ3, and man , i love it that a full case with lenses ( i had..) fits in my chest-pocket
I almost never leave house without it, and i dont wanna go back to a cam that doesnt fit in my pocket although i realze that bigger cams mostly give better quallity pics. No doubt about that.
So, here i am, ready to step up to the TZ30, hoping it wont be a dissapointing test.
man, those where lovely pics, im going to china this year and hope to see the same nice enviroment as you showed on your pics.
Armed with TZ30 and a TZ3 in my wife's hands
