I Got a Keen New Camera

Got a keen new camera yesterday from Woot for $150. It’s a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6, which is a compact point-n-shoot 12MP camera.

It’s coolest feature is the massive zoom that they crammed into such a small package. Allow me to demonstrate.

Here’s a photo of our church’s lawn zoomed all the way out:

Now here’s that same scene zoomed all the way in to that dandelion in the center:
