Red Rock Canyon photo shoot with Panasonic

March 12, 2007 by

While in Vegas for PMA, Shawn and I had the pleasure of taking a Hummer out into the desert for a private photo shoot with Panasonic. Click here to see the gorgeous photos I snapped with the new Lumix DMC-TZ3; a really sweet, 7 megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom and a 28mm wide-angle Leica lens.

Love the 28mm wide angle lens

As Shannon put it, this is his "H2 and H3 recovery vehicle"
Look at the springs on this thing!
