I have been looking for a new camera and have found a few to choose from, including the Panasonic Lumix CM1 compact camera. I take many photographs each day with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ1 at the moment and really enjoy using it. However, I have spotted this new version that would enable me to increase my knowledge of using a manual camera.
I am used to using the automatic features of my present camera yet the more I read and learn about the finer features of photography, the more I would like to use a more manual camera. The Panasonic Lumix CM1 looks like a great camera for this. I like that it is so compact as I have been looking at the larger manual cameras, that look too large for me to carry about at the moment. I have enough to carry with taking two children and a dog out with me each time. I have been reading about aperture, shutter speed as well as ISO and would really like to put these things into practice to improve my photography skills.
This compact Panasonic camera also has the latest video features on it, which would be great for videoing S and H or for finally plucking up the courage to start vlogging! As this camera has Smartphone Technology, you can instantly share your videos and photos to Social Media so if I did start vlogging, I’d be able to upload to YouTube without any hassle. I know how straight forward my current camera is to use so I imagine that the new version will be similar in this area.
As this Panasonic compact camera has all these great features, this is reflected in the price. I think that it will take me some time to save up for one so in the mean time, I am going to continue my search. Which camera do you have at the moment? What would you recommend for someone wanting to improve their manual photography skills?
