Bountiful Pleasures

The Return Of The LumixTZ1

It must have been a lesson, or test to let me know just how lucky I am to have this camera. I called John this morning and picked up the Lumix TZ1 that I had irresponsibly left at his violin shop last Friday. I am so happy to have it back.

Throughout the weekend
I kept telling myself that I could make a silk purse out of a sows ear, or at least get the kind of image results from some of my cameras that I get from the LumixTZ1. I created a blog post using the Sanyo T1060, but the images were so lackluster and lifeless, that I didn't bother posting it. (I wouldn't assault our sensibilities with such substandard dreck.)

To be certain that I wasn't figmanating somehow in my artistic interpretation of what constitutes a great image, I went out and took a couple of pictures with the Panasonic Lumix TZ1, as soon as I got back from retrieving it at John's violin shop.

Trying a variety of different subjects and lighting, the Lumix caught the subtleties, and details that I have come to expect from it's imaging capabilities.

Rainy December Day

This picture turned out, with mood and detail, just as I imagined. 12/6/10

As if to securely embed the clear and delightful results that the Lumix delivers, the camera contained pumpkin pie shots that I had taken last Friday that I could compare to the Sanyo shots of the same pie. The Lumix images make the pie look delicious.
