West Voe of Sumburgh, Shetland. Testing my new camera Panasonic TZ80


I bought a new Panasonic Lumix TZ80. Seems that currently this is the only model on the market, which is compact enough to be carried in pocket, have binocular-like zoom (30x or 35mm camera equivalent: 24-720mm) and good enough freedom with the settings, so I can use it for a bit more then point and shoot. There are several close competitors, but in each case there was something missing for my needs, which include taking pictures of wildlife and other things from great distances, taking pictures from distance, manually adjusting most of the settings and the ability to carry the camera with me while climbing for example. The only other thing I needed it to be was water or at least weatherproof, but alas at this moment such beast doesn't exist yet.

And by the way I am again at West Voe of Sumburgh.
