45 Photos - Lumix Panasonic DMC-ZS40
I decided I am going to make a blog post for every working camera and lens I use for my 45 Photos project. For each camera I am already making a Flickr Album. (Damn in my head I still think about them as Flickr Sets.) This project has made me think about the different point of views each camera needs to be used.
I bought this camera back in 2015 right before Wrestlemania. I wanted a point and shoot camera with a really long zoom. I didn't want to carry my DSLR around Wrestlemania and at the time the Shark Tank didn't allow DSLRs in the building. This camera worked really well.
I used this camera a lot for about a year. The long zoom was really nice. It was quick in focusing and taking photos. I really liked how sharp the photos I got out of this camera. it was good at both close and far photos. The only weakness it is heavy for a point and shoot.
But like all the point and shoot camera I buy, it only lasted about a year. I beat up my point and shoots by always having them on me an using them a lot. My everyday camera takes a lot of pounding. The lens started to click when I tried to zoom and the focus would not work. It does not work well, but I can still get a few photos out of it. It was kind of fun to play with it in this shape.
