New camera

Toadstools in Benmore Botanic garden

I was fed up trying to capture wildlife closeups with spoting scope and home made bits. 80% of the time I'd fail to get a picture and a good proportion of those were rubbish so I splashed out on yet another camera (LUMIX FZ-18) with a 18X zoom. So far so good its made a huge difference to my success rate and the big zoom has other photo spin offs. I'm still getting to grips with it macro may not be one of it strong points but time will tell.
Needless to say I've been out playing and shooting lots of photos most of which are in the delete bin but there are still plenty left.

Hi. Nice pics of plants etc. I need to get myself to Glenburn res, the view there is amazing. Thanks for the info about program. It would be nice to make a video, i have plenty of pics and a couple of video clips, would be nice to put something together like you have done.

You can use windows movie maker which you may actually have on your computer. My first few videos were done using it. Its OK but save your work all the time cause it caves in frequently (at least it did on me).
