Jour de la lettre rouge

Aujourd'hui a été un 'jour de la lettre rouge' pour moi. Si vous êtes français, ceci n'aura aucune signification ?
(Quand il y a des jours de lettre rouge, les juges de la cour élevée anglaise portent, aux séances de la cour de la loi, leurs robes longues d'écarlate).
Pourquoi? C'est parce que j'ai acheté un nouvel appareil-photo ! C'est pareil que le nouvel caméra de Jilly, et c'est un petit-ripper. Un Panasonic Lumix avec Zoom Optique 18x et Zoom Numérique 4x. J'espère que vous ne comptez pas que je prends des photos de Menton d'Australie ! !
Today has been a red letter day for me. Perhaps, if you are French, this will have no meaning?
Why; because I bought a new camera ! It's the same as Jilly has, and it's a little beauty; a Lumix FX-18.
My photo today is my new camera. I hope you don't expect me to take shots of Menton from Australia !!

Ohhh i'm sooooo jealous. Mine's on the blink like my laptop is. Groan! This looks fantastic and i'm drooling. Can't wait to see the results. So tomorrow will be the first with it? I'm anxious to see the difference.

Lynn, you are faster than super-woman.
Me, I am like the Cheshire pussy cat!
I will do my best to take better shots.
A rod for one's back?

I always get excited at the sniff of a new camera! I think I'll enjoy yours as much as I enjoy Mine!

Jilly said...

Monsieur Benaut, how fabulous and snap, double snap snap snap, eh! Well you will love it, same as I do. However my new camera and I are currently having an argument over indoor and night shots - but I will win! And if I don't, I'll ask how you are getting along.

How about that, eh? it's a super-duper dead sexy little camera, isn't it?

Jilly said...

I mean indoor shots taken under artificial light. Sorry. And outdoor night shots. Portraits at any time are fabo!

'super-duper dead sexy little camera', c'est vraiment vrai, Jilly !!! C'est the best thing since sliced bread.

As far as the nitetime shots,,, I've yet to get to the bottom of that one, but sure as eggs, I will.
The previous Lumix TZ3 had a nitetime setting which was fab. I'm sure that i will read-up and learn how to do it and fill you in. I have been fooling around while Madame et toi compare jocular funniments via email.
Something to do with Vegemite, je crois !

I hate reading owners' manuals, but unless one has a child around the joint, one must suffer such indignities.

C'est maintenant une heure le matin et je dois me dépêcher à Menton pour voir si n'importe qui est éveillé là. Je dois faire un tour court le long de rue Longue !

I think your old camera was better.
