Hi all - hope you all had a great Xmas and New Year. I've had an extremely good Xmas present, a dramatic improvement in my health. I became so ill from CFS that I gave up on everything. I sold all my gear - camera, lenses, microscope - the lot - I just got so down I didn't believe I would ever get well again. Just before Xmas I started treatment for Major Depression, a theraputic dose of antidepressant and therapy - the result has been amazing - so good that I decided to take up photography again. I can't afford to go back to where I was with gear so I have ordered a new Panasonic FZ30 which I believe is very good. I am going to post an archival shot which I took with my Canon.
I would like to thank you all for the help I had was I was here previously - especially to Tom Webster and Charlie Krebbs - wish to could put the clock back sometime.

Welcome back Ken!

There is an old cliche (at least in the USA) that when you've got your health, you have everything! As middle age encroaches on me, I realize more and more that that cliche is true. I'm glad you're getting "everything" back again.

Great to hear form you Ken. Been very quite myself M8t for certain reasons. Feeling great now though.

All the best Ken, the FZ30 is a fine camera for macro with supplementary add on lenses, enjoy Very Happy Wink

Thanks everyone for the welcome back - Danny the add-on lenses may be a problem, I just might have to settle for macro rather than super macro.
