    My friend who is a pro photographer wanted some shots of his 20 year old BMW Bike and invited me to use his gear to take some images. His gear is all pro Nikon (astounding) but I decided to give my new Panasonic TZ5 a run and process something special.....

    Here's my go....

    Hope you like...any ideas always welcome.

    best wishes

    The camera

    Many thanks....

    OK...like all things in life, there has to be a compromise (except when you are asking the bank manager for a bigger overdraft!!!..LOL)

    I have a Casio 750 which is apparently iconic amongts the Casio range - I can see why...it is remrkable. Atruly great camera BUT....I wanted a bigger zoom.

    So, the Panasonic TZ5....

    I read and read for ages and decided I liked

    Leica lens (razor sharp)
    10 X optical zoom at 9mp
    16.9 X Optical zoom at 5mp
    Image stabilisation
    Multiple face detection
    Minimal shutter lag
    High definition video recording!!!!!

    It has surpassed my expectations.....I love it....

    OK...what dont I like

    It can be a little noisy at high ISO's...so I try to keep below 400....you can set it so it never exceeds your chosen ISO...

    In short...it is no Nikon DSLR....but how many Nikons have the above features in one camera!!!!!

    Go for it Greg....you will not be disappointed.

    Best wishes
