I was telling my husband how pretty I think the butterfly bush is now, but it doesn’t seem to attract butterflies. I was so wrong!

Yesterday I was outside trying to get good shots of the butterfly bush with my DLSR, when my husband came trotting out with the Panasonic DMC-ZS40, which we had just received in the mail. I decided to try it. Look with it can do.



Great zoom, great autofocus and auto functionality, very quick to use. Also it’s light. We bought it for travel.

Here is a shot using the Sony-A300 digital SLR:


I love the gorgeous color saturation in the Sony photos. I won’t be giving it up anytime soon, but I think I will be very happy with the Panasonic for travel.

I’m going to want to get a camera to convert for infrared photography after seeing the post on Leanne Cole’s blog by Infrared Robert. To me, that is really beautiful art. Check out this beautiful house and amazing river.

  1. I love my DSLR but I also love my little Canon pocket camera. They both take great photos and have different uses. I think you’ll find the same with both of your cameras.
