I am excited today. My new camera came. It is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 . It seems like it will be great. So far the two features that I am most excited about is the ability to zoom really close up without any added lens (18x zoom) and the ability to stay focused on a fixed object even when the object moves.
I had to laugh when I looked at the cover of the owners manual. It says"before connecting, operating or adjusting this product, please read the instructions completely. " The instructions book is 155 pages long! Then I found a foreign language instruction manual. I think it is French. It is only 31 pages long. It made me wonder if it would be easier to learn French or make it through the 155 pages of English!?! LOL!
