Introducing ... Blue

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.
