Dangling In Camera Limbo
Friday 21 January 2011   —   Category: Equipment
Goodbye dear friend! Parting is such sweet sorrow!

After about four-and-a-half years of faithful pho­to­graph­ic service, today I sold my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50. on Amazon.com. It had been listed for only five days. It sold for $300, which is pretty good considering I paid $536 for it new — seems like it held it’s value pretty well. Of course, there were a couple of additional accessories included, like a 2 GB memory card, an extra battery, and a UV filter, which pushed the original cost to around $685, but still, I think I did pretty well con­sid­er­ing the camera is over four years old.

All of the photo albums on this Web site that are dat­ed 2006 through 2009 were taken with this camera, with the exception of the Washington DC 2008 album, for which I used my wife’s Canon PowerShot SD550 because I had wanted to travel light on that trip. I will probably remember this camera most for my Highway 97 South 2007 week-​long road trip.

So, photographically, where does that leave me now? Dangling in camera limbo, that’s where! I am now cam­er­a­less, but I have not yet nailed down what the replacement will be. Well, since it’s the dead of winter, I've still got some time to come to a decision before the outdoor photographic season arrives.
