Flower, apple, Panasonic DMC-ZS40

My “out-of-the-box” experience of the Panasonic DMC–ZS40 is that it is optimized for zoom photography. This seems like the ideal camera for travel. However for around home base, I would definitely want to have the DSLR, just like Suz Jones said in a comment on my last post about the new camera (Butterfly bush), I’m going to love having both.


I had to do some work on the flower. The light was not balanced on it and still isn’t, however I’m sure that’s photographer error.

I didn’t touch the apple.


What is your out-of-the-box experience of the new photos?
