Super Little Whip-a-snapper!
on 9 June 2013
My older Panasonic "pocket rocket" I gave to my eldest Grandson for a trip he's off on. So I needed a replacement. This little camera just suited my needs. It takes the usual high quality snaps that will print in beautiful colour and detail up to A4 or even A3 in some cases without visible signs of pixelation; the smaller Sensor means that with smaller cameras the print size will be limited, but more than suitable enough for the averag user or family.
In Video mode this camera can be used on a tripod, mini-pod, car windscreen mount or hand-held due to the clever and effective "anti-shake" mechanism which smoothes out any "motion bumps". I chose black becaus eI want to use it in-car on a windscreen mount; also purchased via Amazon.
The camera holds a charge well, is easily charged by an optional mains charger unit, or via the supplied USB charger froma PC/Apple or via a mains adaptor. Spare batteries as well as chargers are also available for this model.
The other great feature, especially for the price, is the fact that you can control this via your Mobile Smart-Phone. I downloaded the Panasonic App and within minutes had the camera set-up on a windowsill, then viewd the bird on the bird table and took a few shots as they came in to feed. They did not see me as I was at the back of the room, but I could see them and could also focus and zoom!
All in all this is a bargain at around £90 and a multi-tasker.
