The Proof Is In The Pudding

We’ve all heard the stories of how wonderful and great, this or that product or service is. The adage, ” the proof is in the pudding “, is an age-old English expression that cannot be argued against successfully. This is the basis of my review of this camera that is quickly becoming my new friend!


New Year, New Resolution!

This year, I have decided to add more color to my website;, with photographs that I capture from my many trips into the wilderness.


Where You Can See These Photographs!

These photographs can be seen at:

I add new photographs to this link on a regular basis, and if you observe them closely and from a professional context, they show good detail and composition. This is not because of my proficiency and dexterity, at using this well-crafted and forgiving piece of technology.

It is because this wonderful camera – is very easy to use – and arrives with a very complete and easy to understand manual of operating instructions.


About This Panasonic Camera


My Love Of Color

I am a novice at photography, and yet I have always had an interest in it. The expression, ” so many things to do and so little time “, … became, … Now is the time! I explore this fascinating art, always motivated by – Color.

Colors and shapes, light and contrast; a lifetime of study and exploration. As I capture moments with this camera, I realize how much technology is ” built-in ” and how forgiving it is to my unpolished skills.


This Is A Bridge Camera

This is a bridge camera … the link between … point and shoot and SLR /DSLR. As I become more familiar with its many functions and technical prowess, I am able to capture moments in better quality. Its many buttons and functions have inspired me to read and study the excellent owner’s manual and DVD that was included in the package.

Panasonic has included a very extensive Basic Owner’s Manual and DVD and this makes it easy to explore all its functions and possibilities. There are many descriptive and informative videos of the Panasonic DMC FZ1000 4K online also for you to visit.

If you are new to Photography, whether it is Indoor or Outdoor, and like most of us, sometimes limited by economic factors, this is a great camera to move up to the next level.

This bridge camera is receiving excellent reviews from the professionals in the field. It bridges the gap between – inexpensive point and shoot models – and the more expensive DSLR’s that require greater financial investment and knowledge of photography.

A Few Extras That Were Required

Not included but necessary; were an SD Memory Card and a Protective Carrying Case to ensure the well-being of my investment. I did own a tripod and this is always a good addition to any camera of this quality. This camera has Image Stabilization so while a tripod isn’t always required, it is very nice to have.

  2. How can a camera have so may features?
    I have never bought these types of cameras in my life, but after reading this I might just do so in a near future. It almost sounds unreal that a camera can do so many things, but I guess it`s because technology just keeps improving all the time.
