Hi everyone, I have just started in the group today! (Dec2016) I am retired and live in Stellenbosch, Western Cape SA. I love the beauty of nature and living in the winelands with stunning views, taking photo's has become a passion. Until now I have been taking pics with my cell (Samsung Galaxy S6) and have a new camera since a few days. It's a Lumix TZ70 and I still have to learn how to use it. ( open for any input, critisism or info from other members)
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukka, a healthy, happy and safe 2017
Ps, I will soon be swapping cameras with my daughter and have the Lumix TZ 80 which is supposed to be better?

Update 10.08.2017. I would just like to thank everyone for helping me on my journey in 365. The fabulous photo's, great comments and input from this wonderful community are absolutely amazing. It has been an incredible 8 months so far and I am enjoying every minute. I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. I will never be a good photographer, as I simply started too late and bought the wrong camera. Now I will just have to cope and make the most of it. I am a bit demoralized after reading an article that the TZ80 is one of Panasonics worse as far as noise and camera calibration is concerned. The macro and zoom is also not particularly good. I will try my best to to work around this. I suppose it could have been worse ;-)
