Why Cameras Are More Than Just A Camera

“A Camera is a save button for the minds eye” – Roger Kingston 

Photos are there to capture that one moment forever. They enable you to relive those moments that would otherwise be forgotten.  They can be looked back on in years to come and bring all of those precious memories flooding back and transport you back to that magical moment in time.

I’m never without a phone or camera at the ready and want to capture as many memories as I can no matter where we are or what we are up to.  Sometimes it’s those unexpected moments that you need to be ready for and this is when a super compact camera such as the Lumix Compact Camera is a fantastic choice.

It’s the perfect camera for having to hand all the time.  It’s sleek and lightweight design mean that you can create quality images without the hassle of having to lug around a large, bulky camera and all the paraphernalia that comes with them.


On days out with the children I always find getting quality photos a challenge as the camera is always stored safely in the case to prevent being thrown around by one of the little ones and its always nice to be able to get a better quality image than you can on your phone.  This is where a camera such as the Lumix Compact is a great choice as it can be easily stored in a pocket or carried around in the palm of your hand.

There is no truer words than ‘A picture paints a thousand words’.  We are all visual creatures and our emotions are immediately switched on when it comes to photos.  I watch the rapid growth of my children everyday and continually wish I could just freeze time.  This is of course impossible to do so the next best thing is to capture each step, each milestone and even the ordinary everyday so that this beautiful moments can be a part of me forevermore.

Panasonic Blueray/Freeview Player Review


With such a large family we often find it hard to watch the programs that we want all the time as there is alway so one that need to be dropped off somewhere, homework to do housework to sort out or simply were out and about enjoying ourselves.

What better way to solve this problem is there than a Freeview recorder than can record all your favourite shows for you to watch when you want!

We were given the chance to review the Panasonic Smart Blueray and Freeview recorder and I knew that it would be a great addition to our hectic schedule.

The sleek design fitted in well with our decor and was not as bulky as I imagined it would be.  The Blueray player was fantastic as we’ve not used any DVDs or Buerays for years so the kids loved during them all off and watching some old favourites.

You get a fantastic array of channels to watch with the Freeview channels which can be recorded at any time and can be watched back whenever is convenient for you.

We are all big fans of Netfix so the real pull for us was the button to take you straight through.  It means that Horrid Henry and Peppa Pig have been on loop for weeks now!

To me this would be the perfect alternative to an expensive pay monthly subscription to a sky or cable provider.  It offers so much that I really don’t think you would miss out on anything these they have to offer so after the initial outlay you will be making a huge saving.
