This image has been taken with a lowly Panasonic DMC-FZ150. It’s a modest camera by today’s standards. It pales against its successor, the Panasonic DMC-FZ200. Both cover an equivalent focal range of 25-600 mm, both start at f2.8 on the wide end, but the FZ200 maintains a constant aperture throughout its range.
Would this image have been any better if I had been able to leverage shallow DOF? I strongly doubt it 😀
The Song of the Day is “You Can Leave Your Hat On“, but neither Randy Newman’s original nor the frequently heard version by Joe Cocker. Today it’s Mary Coughlan on her 2002 album “Red Blues”. Hear it on YouTube.
