    1) Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer? I would be a better photographer because I would take more photos! The images produced using this camera (as seen on Retro Mummy’s blog) are great… Thanks!

  2. Shelley :

    How would the G Series camera make you a better photographer?

    Are you serious?
    HD video, neat size, intelligent auto too?
    Interchangeable lenses, touch screen
    Is there anything it doesn’t do?

    Photography is my passion,
    but too many of my snaps are a flop,
    the G series sounds so simple to use
    it’s sure to make my photos pop!

    Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    As you can see, I never blog without pictures, its like talking about something exciting without describing what made it so amazing. This camera will definitely capture photos of our growing kids heaps better with all the crisp details shown, the photos of our vacations and various trips more enjoyable to look back, the foods that I blog, so much more appetizing and yummylicious … who would turn down such a wonderful experience where all nice and exciting memories are captured … years on as you look back, photos captured by Panasonic Lumix G2 will still embibe the same fun, vibrant and exciting emotions.

  4. Larah Kennedy :

    The Panasonic Lumix G2 would make me a better photographer because I am still a beginner and sometimes I spend so much time fiddling with the settings on my camera that I miss the shot I was trying to capture. The Lumix G2’s easy touch screen and auto features would mean I could still get DSLR quality pictures without spending precious time trying to adjust the settings.

  5. Thanh :

    Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    The G2 will make me a better photographer because it will correct all my bad photography skills such as shaky hands and wrong settings. Unfortunately, the camera won’t be able to remind me to take a photo of the food before I start eating it, or can it?

  6. Jason :

    Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer? Instead of a better photographer, we can combine to make a “better camera”. The features of this baby is too neat to describe in detail…

  7. Anita :

    Panasonic Lumix TZ10: Where in the world would you take the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 and what photo would you take?
    I’m actually going on a school program to France this year :) It’s going to be my first time there and the pictures I could take of the Louvre, the Champs-Elysees from the top of the Arc de Triomphe, all of Paris while climbing the Eiffel tower, oh and Monet’s garden! Can you imagine using this camera in Monet’s garden? You’d never be able to stop! Not just the big attractions, but I want to take pictures of everything, bookstores I visit, places I eat, parks I sit in, and absolutely everywhere I go because you can be sure as hell that I’m going to go back there from time to time and when I have kids that go to France, I’ll have a kick arse journal full of photos and writing to pass down to them.

  9. Megan Aney :

    Panasonic Lumix TZ10: Where in the world would you take the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 and what photo would you take?
    I would take the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 over to Pakistan to be able to photograph the devastation after the floods and to take it home to Australia to help people understand what needs to be done on our part to rebuild a country.

  10. Sondra Hamill :

    … OMG! Today i printed out over 100 photos of family,friends,dogs,cats and much more. The quality was terrible, my husband says its the photographer….i’m convinced its the camera! Why is it that when i take photos of my husband swimming,running,riding … he is never in them?

    As i tell him its the camera! A Panasonic Lumix G2 would be the difference. 100’s of better photos, and some even with him in them!

  11. Tenille :

    If I was to win the Lumix DMC-TZ10, I would take it home with me. Then I might take it with me while I take my daughter for a walk to our local park. Then I’d take it with my while I weed our veggie patch, or explore our local markets. One day, I’d take it with me to celebrate a special occasion; the commemoration of a birthday, or the welcoming of a new life into the world. I would take lots and lots of photo’s along the way, and post them to my blog. Then my bloggy friends can help me celebrate the simple joys in life. Cause I’m a blogger, and that’s what I do.

  12. Julie Botham-Clarke :

    How can the Lumix G2 make me a better photographer?
    How could it not
    With all the great features the Lumix G2 has got
    It has a Micro Four Thirds system, it’s perfect in low light
    Creating a sun-shiny day of any dim lit night
    For those with experience; it’s a camera worth their while
    It has easy manual freedom that would make an artist smile
    And with the Intelligent Automatic mode, great shots are a shoo-in
    Making an amateur like me seem to know what they were doing
    There are preset modes for sport and stills, a defocus mode sublime,
    Settings that ensure perfect photos every time
    A comfortable view finder and LCD brings things to life
    And the weight is of no consequence; even for a wife
    So if you want a camera, (as I do) that’s full of tricks
    I’ll say life surly looks better through a Panasonic G2 Lumix

  13. Cindy :

    If I won the Lumix TZ10, I’d take it back to my hometown and get busy recording all my old friends and their cute kids. I don’t get to see them often enough and those little tackers grow up so fast! The camera’s compact size and hand-shake correction sound perfect for the job.

  14. Maraea :

    I’m a technophobe to the enth degree. The only reason I have had mobile phones is when they have been given to me. I stil take photos with a manual camera and then the camera film rolls around in the car forever. Since digital cameras became popular I have never taken photos apart from a manual camera – a voigt I picked up in Madrid when I lost my one in Gibralter, takes great photos. I would LOVE to win the Panasonic Lumix G2, all those settings- the video ability. No more would I be the shameless carting a million bags around woman but a sophisticate with a camera that does everything but drive itself to beautiful locations which is exactly where I would be taking it and in the process becoming unleashing the photographer within

  15. Shelley Nelson :

    oooooiiiiii, I want one! A Panasonic Lumix G2 that is. My current camera took a nose dive of my entertainment unit and is no longer with us :( Being photographically illiterate I need a point and shoot camera that takes awesome photos…Hello Panasonic Lumix G2! If I don’t win this one, I may just go out and buy one!

  16. Alex :

    Panasonic Lumix TZ10: Where in the world would you take the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 and what photo would you take?

    With such a powerful zoom in a small and compact camera, the TZ10 will my best companion when I visit Magnetic Island this coming October long weekend. I am sure it will come in handy for all the landscape shots. With the built-in GPS, hopefully it will help me to keep track of all the locations while I trek around the island. Two weeks after that, the wide angle lens will come into good use while I try to capture shots of vehicles in tight spaces during the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. And with a dedicated Food scene mode, my gastronomic experiences in Fiji can be easily recorded crisp and clear, during my trip in December. :)

  17. Carol Taylor :

    My camera was stolen,so I haven’t been able to take photos of my family and friends for 12 months.The G2 looks really easy to use which is what I need. It has lots of great features and takes exceptional photographs.

  18. Lisa Quarterman :

    How would a Panasonic Lumix G2 help me to be a better photographer? Well it is aimed at people just like me – budding photographers who are little bit unsure when it comes to using digital cameras. The fabulous features can’t help but improve my photo taking and with an amazing camera like this, I would certainly be motivated to make sure that I put it to good use. With three small children always on the go, I would have a much better chance at actually capturing the moment, rather than a million photos of legs disappearing from the shot!

  19. Farah :

    I would love to own the Panasonic Lumix G2 simply because it’s a lifetime machine that will carries my bub’s memories. It is cute like a baby. It has mind of its own like a baby. It surprise you like a baby. It does wonder like a baby. It’s fragile yet very tough like a baby. It doesn’t need to be feed with milk like a baby. It doesn’t cries like a baby. It doesn’t need wean off like a baby. But most importantly, it needs tender loving care like a baby.

  20. Grace Koay :

    A picture paints a thousand words, and I believe in this day and age, a great camera is essential for any one person: a blogger, a mom, a very busy mom and aspiring blogger. I live in the moment, and with my three beautiful children, every moment with them is precious. And if I could capture these moments, they would tell my story.

    The Panasonic Lumix G2 would make me a better photographer as it would allow me to take brilliant quality pictures of my loved ones, being so portable it would go places with us: a childhood and lifetime journey. The intelligent auto will be my friend, my guide to exquisite professional looking pictures. And with the HD video function, we could be superstars and I could be supermom and not miss the important milestones, the rollover, the first steps, the cheeky grin, the first day of school etc.

    I would love to be able to tell our story, with the Panasonic Lumix G2!

    Thank you Nuffnang for the opportunity.


  21. Posie Patchwork :

    Fabulous prize of a camera!! What’s not to love when you have an online business & lots of children to go snap happy with, thanks, love Posie

  22. cusinera :

    How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    To answer this question, I will ask you a question back=) How does Leonardo da Vinci paint his masterpieces?

    Answer: Of course with his favourite brushes and top quality paints.

    Having said that, I will return to the competition question, “How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make me a better photographer?

    Answer: Panasonic Lumix G2 will be my favourite brush and paint that will give me fantastic quality pictures (ahem! masterpieces) for my food blog (Busog! Sarap!). It will be an extension of my eyes to catch much finer details and colour that I want to capture in my shots.

    I am a hands on person and the Panosonic Lumix G2 will give me more room to grow from my old 8 megapixels point and shoot. Writing is not my biggest prowess, my cooking is my greatest love (am obsess with it, it hurts;P) and capturing it with a beautiful camera would be an improvement. And with the HD video feature, I might go to the next level and feature step by step cooking videos on Busog! Sarap! Because it is between a point & shoot and SLR, it will be a perfect match to a un-tech savvy like me=)

  23. cusinera :

    ps. see the evidence of my writing is not my biggest prowess…I’ve misspelled “Panasonic” with Panosonic :P So EMBARASSING!!! LOL…

  24. danielle :

    I would love the Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    It is a great, easy to use camera that will give me quality photos. I have taken so many photos but they never turn out right, so I haven’t been able to use them. So many times I have the intention to write a blog about a beauty feature/tutorial but I cant because I dont have a good camera to take good photos.
    The Panasonic Lumix G2 will help me be a better photographer because it will give me good quality pictures that I can use and be proud of especially with the auto function it has – nothing will be missed when taking a photo. I also make videos for my YT channel so the HD video function, will definitely come in handy to tape good quality videos too.
    I want a simple, easy to use, great features and good quality camera and the Panasonic Lumix G2 is just that.

  25. Terry :

    Q: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    Point, zoom, shoot with ease, the
    Touch screen menu works a breeze.

    Very light on the knees so
    Take it anywhere as you please.

    Preset functions will appease and
    Changeable lenses, must have these.

    Inspires you for snapshot sprees,
    Perfect for blogging devotees.

    With PANASONIC’s expertise,
    Get WOW results, –
    Just say, “CHEESE !!!”

  26. Susan Nightingale :

    The Lumix G2 would make me a better photographer because of its awesome, easy to use features, manageable size and true SLR results. Thank you Panasonic for creating a camera which shouts ‘no compromise’ for holiday snaps, important family memories and professional looking photos of beautiful things.

  27. Maree :

    Where would I take the Panasonic TZ10? Camping down south! Here in Australia there are some amazing places down south that we have visited, and my photo memories dont do justice to the beauty of the places. I would take the camera back to some holiday spots that we loved, and take photos we can look at and feel like were there, not just remember when we were.

  28. Ling Tung :

    Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    Hello? Have you seen the machine and its awesome functions??!!! The question is – how can anyone not be a better photographer with the Panasonic Lumix G2?!

  29. Claire :

    Wow! What a camera! Just what I need, something idiot proof that will make my happy snaps into something fit for a magazine! I’ll be taking this EVERYWHERE… not as bit as other cameras, it will fit right into my purse :)

  30. Monika Page :

    This is a travel camera and before this year, my answer would have been something like ‘I would take the Panasonic camera to Europe and take pictures of Swiss Alps, The French Eiffel Tower, The Greek Isles and Italian men (!).
    Now I know where the best place to travel to in the world is. My baby’s nursery. I would take the Panasonic camera into his room to capture that feeling I get every time he opens his eyes from a nap and sees his mum. That immense joy and sheer delight of seeing his Mummy. I know that won’t last forever and soon he’ll be embarrassed to even hug me. I would love to capture this precious moment in time but I need something that is easy to use because those moments are so quick that I don’t have time (or skill!) to use a proper camera and play around with settings.
    We also travel a lot and it means the pics are always a mess. Yes, i have become one of those mothers that takes 50 photos a day of her son and then brings them out at parties (i vowed NOT to be that woman ever). So the GPS function would be brilliant for sorting the pictures out and having a record of our son’s first year of life.

  31. Nadine :

    I’ve shyed away from cameras due to my weight for so long – as the subject of one, I was too self-conscious. And as the user of one, I didn’t think my life was that interesting to document. Now I’ve lost some weight I’m gaining a new outlook I never had – I’ve always wanted to start a fashion blog but was too embarrassed to post photos of myself. Being more confident now, I can’t wait to start! The Panasonic Lumix G2 would be the perfect tool for me to take my outfit shots as my apartment is dimly lit, and from what I’ve heard this baby performs great in low light.

    I’m also putting myself out there more and realising how fun and interesting life can be when I change my perspective! There’s so much beauty and excitement to be had in this city (Sydney) and I really should capture myself living it up in it. Even with my limited photography skills, the Panasonic Lumix G2 is sure to do it justice. It will help me become a better photographer because I’ll love what it (and I!) create, and I’ll want to do it all over again!

    As a bonus, now that I’m not so camera shy, I’m also really excited about the flip screen on it which will allow me to take pictures with myself in them!

  32. Ann :

    Panasonic Lumix G2 would be ideal for me as blogger, mother and tourist in my new country – New Zealand just begs to be photographed and photographed well!!

  33. Naomi Ellis :

    How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer? I can use all the features and functions to capture the faces, the emotions, the priceless images of my seven cherubs and have a record of them that I can treasure for always.

  34. Olivier :

    Panasonic Lumix G2: How will the Panasonic Lumix G2 make you a better photographer?

    What’s not to love about the Lumix G2? I’m truly impressed. A camera that gives you SLR quality in a simple to use format, with fantastic features in the intelligent auto and touch screen. A wonderful step-up from a point and shoot, it’s just what I need!

  35. Angela :

    2) I would take the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 to Africa as I am taking my mum there this month for her 60th birthday. The photo I would take would be a photo of my mum game viewing and bird watching while she nervously canoes down the Zambezi River as she can’t swim and is quite terrified that I have signed her up to do this with me. Priceless once in a lifetime photo opportunity!

  36. Karen :

    The Panasonic Lumix G2 would make me a better photographer as the features it has mean that I will be able to take better pictures using the camera functions – rather than relying on skill or knowledge I don’t yet have.
    I have three small children so need to be able to set the camera up on the run to take good pics – and I think it sounds like I will be able to do it with this camera.
    It sounds like just what I need to look like a photography pro when really I’m very definitely not!

  37. Lorraine :

    1) The Panasonic Lumix G2 will make me a better photographer through its user friendliness. This will enable me to view and appreciate the world in a totally different way through being able to use the extensive functions the camera possesses, particularly its ability to be used in a wide range of settings from low lighting to fine detail to scenic photography.

  38. Bee :

    The photographs I most desire to take are the ones that tell a story of the simplest things in life in the most sincere and truthful manner possible. The Panasonic Lumix G2 will the perfect companion to my journey in seeking out and recording the simple moments, particularly with its ability to be
    used in a wide range of settings and in helping me bring out the colours and truthfulness of life.

  39. Cindy :

    The Lumix G2 sounds too good to be true! I would love being able to have this camera readily available in my handbag and still be able to use features that I love on my big and cumbersome SLR. I think I would be guaranteed to be a better and more frequent photographer if I could use a quality camera like this.

    Retromummy wrote a great review. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the competition.
