Oh, Betty I almost forgot. Jim's message reminded me. Wondering what camera is behind those great photos you guys are shooting? I am beginning to think about a new one, and the colors are really crisp and clear with that camera.
Smoky,Smoky said:"It is a "Jerry"(Fitzgerald) camera....Panasonic DMC-FZ30"What is a Jerry Fitsgerald camera?
Smoky said:Well danbg, your photos prove Jerry knows something.? Off to google it.
Smoky said:Well I googled the Panasonic and the price appears to be under $500. And that includes 8 mega-pixels of resolution.. Wow! Now to find a brick and mortar store. I have heard horror tales of ordering cameras by mail.
Ron, Russ, Betty, others ... any other features you found especially good about the camera?

They are with out a doubt the most honest and easiest to deal with camera source on the web, plus have the largest selection. They have the best reputation and offer 30 day money back guarantee--which I have used twice for lenses that did not do what I wanted. Their prices are not the lowest, but they are reasonable.
Smoky said:Does the Panasonic DMC-FZ30 come standard with that lens?? Are there additional lenses that can be purchased for that camera?? If anyone else knows the answer jump on in.

To do this I would pre focus by pressing the shutter button half way down and then press it the rest of the way down when I saw the car.
JerArdra said:The race is over and I'm sorry that I didn't think of backing off the speed to get a little blur in the photo.? Oh well next time I'll try that.
