Good Service & Camera
on October 23, 2013
Received all items on time and as promised. All items were new products. Bought this group of items primarily for the camera but needed the additional stuff to use with the camera. Had SLR with lens, filters, & other paraphernalia before digital but have been buying digital point and shoots because I didn't want to carry all that stuff around. I realized with the new digital p&s, I could get the picture I wanted most of the time with editing programs compensating for the deficiencies. I have been waiting for a camera with a good zoom lens that has all the bells and whistles that current DSLRs don't have. I think I found it with the FZ70. So far I am impressed with the lens (very good, even at full zoom) and all the features. It almost seems you can handle most of the editing in the camera. For example, one feature is, in a sun/shadow shoot, the camera will automatically take 3 pictures and combine them to even out the exposure across the picture (something you would normally perform on a Raw picture with an editing program.) BTW, the larger body is easier to hold for people with large hands (me).
One problem, except one free basic editing program, the camera is so new that few editing programs can process the Raw picture format.
