    Soon as it arrives tomorrow I am going to take a few shots of my watches to test the camera out a bit. I like that is has a Leica lense on it.

    Very nice - congratulations!

    I have a Lumix FZ50, which I use for my work camera on construction sites for field review and as a back-up to my Nikon D90.

    It's a great point-and-shoot, but has a very small image sensor. I cannot recommend enough to shoot in good daylight and keep the ISO at 100. You need LOTS of light.

    Here's some samples that I shot with the FZ50:















    Happy shooting!

    Best regards,
    Wallace

    i have a slightly older model of that camera (fz28) and love it when it's not practical to lug one of my SLR's around. Also takes pretty good video, which neither of my SLR's do. I didn't think the video would be a big deal but I'm doing a lot of video for coursework lately, and it beats having to borrow the school's cameras and deal with capturing from tapes.
