cheap digital point-and-shoot

I don't think I ever took any photos of this camera. The Panasonic DMC-LZ2 was just a generic point-and-shoot camera that I purchased as a small pocket camera for traveling. It had a decent optical zoom (37-222mm equivalent) and vivid colors, but most importantly, took AA batteries. A new model in 2005, I purchased it refurbished in 2006, and it died on me in 2008 while in Scandinavia.

Here's some photos I took with it.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
