In my previous post, I told you that we went to Thrissur on a trip to buy a camera. But I realised I didn’t show you which camera we bought. So here it is – Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 Bridge Camera that can shoot 4K video, do 120fps slow-mo, has 18x optical zoom, 5-axis optical stabilisation, 1-inch sensor, and most importantly 3.5mm audio jack to connect to external microphones. Here are some more reasons on why I bought this model – if you are interested.
I like this camera very much, but it’s a used (one-year old) model. So the risk of any malfunction falls on me. I hope it will hang on for one or 1.5 years by which time I’ll buy a better camera (by which time manufacturers will release another gem like this). Nevertheless, in the meanwhile, I look forward to learning, photographing and videographing to my heart’s content 🙂
It will be sometime before I show you any pics or videos taken with this camera as I am trying to read the 385-page manual (why do all the gadgets/tools I buy come with gigantic manuals??). I now realise I have a lot to learn about cameras!
PS: Doesn’t it look huge and professional? 🙂 One more thing we liked about this model is, the screen can be flipped around and we can actually take selfies with this camera – and we did!! Woohooo… 🙂 😀 😛
