"I love my camera"

Was a famous quote from a friend almost every day on our trip to India last year. Well now it is my turn.

Since I have had my new Panasonic TZ9 compact camera I have found a feature that is great for capturing insect photos without getting too close disturbing the subject. The camera has a great 32x zoom that allows you photograph from distance. Once the subject is located, just 2 presses of a button and you are in close. I know that it is digital zoom and the quality is not great but with the powers of photoshop I think the results are perfectly acceptable for blogging. If you need a quick shot to get an ID then it is perfect. I know I am not going to win Wildlife Photographer of the Year but I am pleased.
