Cheers, I've moved loads over the last few weeks, I'm just hoping it doesn't set the plants back too much.

Re: Pdid`s garden blog (New Camera)

Post by pdid » Mon Jun 24, 2013 5:38 pm

Just over a year ago I bought a Panasonic Micro 4/3 camera with the intention of taking up photography as a hobby. Unfortunately this never materialized and the size of the camera led to it being a hindrance and not being taken anywhere.

We decide to get rid and luckily sold it to a friend within 12 hours and replaced with a Panasonic TZ40 which is a nice little compact with a decent zoom which fit easily into a pocket. Anyway here's a few snaps.

P1000896(1).JPG
P1000899(1).JPG
And zoom, not quite as impressive as Dave's HX50 but good none the less, pics were taken free hand (the panny has excellent image stabilization soft/hardware)

Full Zoom
I's also got some nifty Wifi and NFC features including being able to use my phone as a remote control.

All in all I'm very happy and it will get used a lot more than the old G3.

I reckon mine in the Temple window must be a Polycarpa then, it looks really similar to yours.

Was yours from treseeders coddy? I know a few of us bought from them via eBay a few years ago. I thought mine was dead after its 1st Winter (potted in conservatory) but it pulled through and is looking ok now it's planted out.

Yeh, done not bad in greenhouse overwinter then went on a massive decline.......I think because the pot was to small.....I read they have a 85% better chance of survival if planted......by that time tough I thought it was a gonna and was about to get another and plant it straight out.....I don't even know what made me plant this as there no sight of green hardly left on it.....anyway the is a new central leaf pushing out of it now... :D
