Pics: Seminole Pro Tour Stop at Hammer Heads

I recently bought a new camera (a Panasonic DMC-FZ18) because I wanted to be able to take pictures at pro tournaments that wouldn’t disturb anyone with a flash. This weekend’s event at Hammer Heads in Holiday gave me my first opportunity to try it out. I have to confess that the DMC-FZ18 is a lot more camera than a guy like me needs. I’ll never take advantage of a small fraction of its capabilities. But I hope that, in time, I’ll be able to take some halfway decent pool pics. Here are a few of my first efforts.

Once again, I have to congratulate Hammer Heads on being the most congenial of hosts - it's a great place to go if you want to watch a tournament.

Thanks for the kudos Ace! Awesome that Donny won! I am interested in a camera like yours that doesn't flash could you let me know the cost.
Hope to see you soon.

Nice effort with the new camera Ace, I think the Donny & Jason shots are the best - it's a bit easier with the lighting.

Keep it up!!!
