My new prosumer camera.
After seeing the Annie Leibowitz exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in December, I've really been inspired to capture beautiful Europe with finer equipment.
I went in search for a new breed- a prosumer (not professional, not consumer) camera. It is the perfect combination of being lightweight and small like a point-and-shoot, while having the awesome ability of attaching lenses like an SLR.
I bought this excellent silver Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 for less than $400. It shoots HD video and has awesome micro-photo capability as well as a very wide 24mm lens. I've shot 1 gig worth of pictures and video over the last 2 days. I'm glad I recently upgraded to a terabyte drive.
