Close up MACROS of plants I like to photograph.
But, I never said I wouldn’t be getting another camera — ever. That would have been a stretch.
I will probably still use a camera in the foreseeable future.
The Pixel 4 is fine & fun BUT it has its limitations — even for what I do.
The key among these is the lack of a viewfinder and the absence of delicate, manual focusing. I need both of that for the pictures I like to take.
I also ‘resent’ the TINY sensor in phone cameras. This at least as a 1″ sensor. I can live with 1″.
I kind of like Panasonic. I had a Panasonic FZ1000 for over 6 (whole) months, 2015 to 2016. This camera has very similar specs, but in a much more compact form factor.
Looking through my posts I see that I considered its direct precursor, the ZS100, when it was announced. That is good.
I haven’t ordered one yet. Most likely get it from my friends at ‘Cardinal Camera‘. I trust them, and they always give me decent prices.

Did NOT plan it as such — sell it after 1-year.
NO. I did NOT need the money. SMILE.
I just realized I had NOT used it in over 2-months. And that is my rule with cameras. IF I haven’t used it — get rid of it.
Last picture I had taken with it.
That was on January 28, 2020!
It had to go.
Obviously I am still taking pictures every day. But, not with my Canon. I like my ‘new’ Google Pixel 4.
I am happy with what I got on eBay. I ended up selling the grip, my Canon RF 35mm (which I had BARELY used) and my control ring adapter. Still have two other items to sell. I am good.
I have NO CAMERA! Wow. Just my Google Pixel 4. Kind of feel naked.
Yes, I have an idea as to what I might get. NO, it will not be full-frame. It will not even be APS-C or even 1″!
Yes, I am going back to TINY sensor. I am going to get a TRAVEL compact. The Pixel 4 doesn’t zoom far or do macro that well.
I will keep you posted.

Funny. I wrote a book about getting this camera.
Camera’s gone. But, the book is forever! That is life. That is why I write books!
