Hi Everyone!
I've had my FZ50 for a couple of months now and I love it so far! (Of course, it's much fancier than my previous camera, a Canon PowerShot S330). I'm learning about photography on my own, studying books and getting advice from photographer friends. It's so much fun! My favorite kinds of pictures to take are of babies and children in natural light. I look forward to meeting some other FZ50 users and learning some new tricks with my new passion.
