This cat thought I was such a nuisance. Didn’t I understand it was trying to stalk and catch that bird out there on the grass?
The F and the T, side by side
These are images from my two favorite cameras side-by-side for comparative purposes. I am showing them, (pretty much), straight from the camera without any post production.
the pictures from the same distance, and with the same settings. The
FZ5 pictures are on the left, and the TZ3 pictures are on the right.
have a 10x optical zoom lens, but the TZ3 has a wide angle lens so the
reach is not as far. The lens on the TZ3 is smaller in diameter as well,
but it’s sensor has more mega-pixels, so details are sharper and it can
be cropped without obvious deterioration.
an example where I cropped the cereal picture from the TZ3 so it would
match the size ratio of the FZ5. It still holds it’s sharpness. I also
lightened it a bit to match.
The TZ3 image,
(on the right), has a flatter perspective and lacks the obvious depth
of field of the FZ5, but the colors are richer in tone and luminosity.
Now back to the unadulterated, straight from the camera results...
Once again, the FZ gets closer, but the TZ has stronger color density.
The reds and blues of these appear the same, but the greens are different.
today’s comparison. I find that both cameras serve me well, and have
become a natural part of my creative composition experience. They are
both Panasonic Lumix cameras and fit my idea of how digital images can work.
a visual quality, and tactile sense that these cameras give to me, that
I don’t feel when using some of the other brands. I am very fortunate
that these cameras managed to find me.
one of those rare times that one can see MT Lassen from the Treehouse,
lately. It is nice when the smoke and haze clears enough to view this
magnificent mountain. Some of the wildfires continue to stubbornly
resist the efforts of our valiant fire fighting crews, but in another
week or so, most of the fires should be extinguished.
