Pretty much five years ago to the date I walked into John Lewis on Palmerston Road in order to buy myself my first digital camera. Probably a bit late in life, I know, but hey. After exchanging the princely sum of £110 I walked away with my first Panasonic Lumix. I’m really no expert when it comes to cameras, nor do I consider myself much of a photographer. But I do know that I take great pleasure in being able to point and shoot whenever my eyes catch something. My dear first camera travelled with me everywhere; it survived numerous countries, mud, water and heatwaves. It got me through five years of blogging and, despite all it’s imperfections, I loved it. But all good things must come to an end. The poor dear started to struggle and taking a single photo started to take time and effort. With a trip to Thailand booked my thoughts shifted towards upgrading. It only took a freak wave down Southsea seafront for this thought to become a reality. Please meet the new Panasonic Lumix TZ70. Looking forward to getting to know it.
