Pentax W60 Launch Cornwall

Pentax W60 Launch  Cornwall. Pentax organised a surf lesson and a spot of surfing at Newquay. It was the first time I’d been surfing – I nearly managed to stand up! The W60 held out well, being hit by a surf board and drowned on several occasions.

Panasonic Lumix LX3 launch – Monoco

Panasonic launched their compact Panasonic Lumix LX3 in Monaco, France.  I flew Leeds Bradford to Nice on Flight LS24. We stayed in the Fairmont, 12 Avenue Des Spelugues, Monte Carlom, Monaco 98000

They organised a walking tour of Monaco and a photo shoot on the harbour with a model and vintage car and two models on a scooter.

The LX3 performed really well. Sadly I lost some of my best pics taken with it due to a drive / folder error. No idea where they vanished, but they also disappeared from the back up – as if by magic!
