AFL Umpires…The Traditional Uniform Is Best Middle East Conflict

New Camera

July 26th, 2006 at 12:06pm

You may recall that the camera which served me well for quite some time developed a nasty “black semi-circle at top left” fault recently. The camera was sent off for repair, but due to warranty complexities and the nature of the fault, it was not repaired. The camera may still be repaired at some stage in the near future, and then sold, but there are some difficulties due to the fact that Konica Minolta have ceased their camera business and handed support and servicing over to Sony.

The black semi-circle fault can be easily seen in this photo:

Anyway, a new camera has been purchased on Flexirent, a Panasonic DMC-FZ7, and so far I must say I am very impressed. The photos are excellent, the focus and flash systems likewise, and the video mode would most likely be suitable for budget short videos (gives me ideas for January…more on that at a later date).

I’ve taken some photos for your enjoyment and perusal, clicking on them will enlarge them.

Still to come, pictures of the new pond and the goldfish who reside in it, and the next photographic tour of the constructions taking place in Civic (the underground cabling building is nearly complete, and the Section 84 developments are coming along nicely).
