Playing with my new camera

Two of the biggest problems with digital cameras are shutter lag (the time between when you press the button and the picture is taken) and shutter interval (the time between pictures). My new camera, the Lumix DMC-TZ3 clearly doesn’t suffer from either of those. Check out this series from the camera’s burst mode. For best effect, change the slideshow speed to 1 sec.

I used Picasa instead of flickr because Picasa’s slideshow doesn’t use transitions, which ruin the effect. Picasa also does a better job of scaling the image to the user’s window than flickr. I’d be happier with Picasa if they would let me control the speed in the URL and with WordPress if they’d let me use Picasa’s Embed slideshow feature.

My review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3.
