Slightly smaller but with 40x optical zoom instead of 18x. I've had the FZ38 for over 7 years now, and before that I had a Konica Minolta Z2.
For the last 4 years the FZ38 has had a bit of dust inside the lens which could be seen on photos when using high zoom levels.

Yesterday I managed to lose some pictures off the SD card, half way through copying them onto the PC, Windows said the card wasn't formatted and even after using Photorec, only about half of them could be recovered. Note to self: that's what the write protect switch is for on the card (not that I've ever used it).
I've ordered a Baofeng GT-3 (Mk 2) dualbandheld after selling the Alinco DJ-G7 triple bander. A bit of a downgrade, I know, going from a £300 to a £30 radio but lately I've not been making much use of the handheld radios, especially not on 23cm. I decided not to go for the cheapest Baofeng dual band radio, after reading reviews of the GT-3 which said there was some difference in performance.
I've also ordered a new battery for my DMR handheld (MD-380 clone) so I can use it portable again and not just rely on the battery eliminator.
One of my goals for 2017 is to make more blog posts, at least one every week if possible, even if they might not all be radio related (if not then they will probably be electronics themed).
