Like many people, I love taking photographs. While I'll never claim to be a professional or a talented photographer, I'm definitely a frequent one. My trusty DSLR is never put away in its case as it's so often needed. At home, it's always placed somewhere close to me so I can quickly grab it to "catch a moment". When in the car, it's by my side, in case I need to stop, pullover and take a photo of a sunset. On days out, it's always around my neck ready to capture our precious family memories.
I own a fair few lenses and used to take them all out with me to switch between. Recently however, I've found that I prefer the freedom of just bringing out my camera with one lens. I only change lenses when I'm at home, so I'm wondering if I should consider buying a Lumix Bridge Camera for photography on the go.
Bridge cameras offer enhanced optical zoom (that I could only achieve with one very expensive DSLR lens), compact size, the benefit of manual mode, maximum aperture and high quality images. I especially love the new bridge cameras that feature a splash proof rugged design - essential when you love the sea as much as I so. I'm drawn to the waves.
This coming Spring and Summer, I'm looking forward to revisiting places, such as Church Doors, above.
I also want to revisit and photograph Blue Lagoon, Abereiddy. It will be amazing to take summer photos here and also shots of the kids on the water.
We love running water, natural or man-made, like at Broad Haven beach.
This year we plan to visit the Brecon Beacons and go wild swimming under the natural waterfalls in the Summer- it would be amazing experience and a beautiful place to photograph.
I think a Bridge Camera would be a practical solution to bring with us as it offers the features of a DSLR without the need to change lenses. Do you own a Bridge Camera? Which model would you recommend?
