Better Photography

We have at last decided to buy ourselves a new camera. After a lot of research our decision fell on a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ10. It has a brilliant Zoom, a Wide Angle Lens, GPS and a stabilizer plus many more fantastic features. With the GPS you will be able to see exactly where we took pictures on a map and trace our journey. This will come to a test the first time when we go on our holiday to the UK where we shall take some photos with the GPS system and then put it on the blog. A first example of the quality of the pictures the camera takes you can see on the left. This makes a very nice desktop wallpaper, just double click, then right mouse, 'set as desktop wallpaper'. If you are interested in geotagging here are the links to two programs I will be using. Firstly there is Geosetter and secondly locr where I will store some pictures for you to see, as well as picasa what you might alrady know from my other picture links.
One more thing I would like to point out to you is my brother's Homepage
He is about to make a fantastic motorbike journey through India by himself. This will be extremely interesting to watch, as he is a good photographer and he writes in English too. Check out his site and please pass on to anyone who ist interested in travelling.
