Introducing … Blue

Posted by

After an appropriate period of mourning for the loss of Red, I’d like to introduce you to Blue …

Blue joined me today, and will be accompanying me on my ongoing explorations, something I think you’ll agree is a courageous decision given what happened to his little sister, Red, so recently.

I confess before asking Blue to join me, I had an early and ill considered date with a Go Pro 2 Hero HD video camera before realising that videos are just not for me, I had a brief flirtation with an Olympus Tough due to their wider focal range but was let down by their picture quality,  and I even found myself on the equivalent of considering propositioning a non waterproof camera for all the wonderful extra features I would get …

However, sense prevailed and after thinking about what I put my poor little cameras through, I realised that there was a reason why I ended up with Red, (Red was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TC3), and for that same reason I chose Blue (a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TC4). 

I’m also very excited about the fact that unlike my last few digital companions, Blue is actually a local, purchased from a Tasmanian retail store (well The Good Guys in Moonah) so comes with an Australian camera warranty and was (much to my surprise) only $35 more expensive than the price I could get it for online at my usual online stores.  Go Tasmania – nice to support the locals.

Here’s to hoping for a long and productive relationship with Blue.
