I told you I thought I was going to like the zoom lens on this Canon SX 30 IS.
I was right.
How about this picture of a tree in the pasture. This is a view from the Golf Cart.
Here is the same view with a close up of the tree.
How about the moon? See that tiny little spec?
Can you see it a little better now?
The camera has an image stabilization feature that helps you to be able to hold it steady for these zoom shots, but it was extremely difficult holding it steady enough without a tripod. That darn moon just kept jumping around all over the place.
How about a night moon shot? Out of focus, but you get the picture of how far away it was.
Here's is it zoomed in to the max.
At first I wasn't sure I was going to like the camera. I had to figure out out to adjust it to my liking. I still have some work to do, but I definitely think it'll work for us. Al came back home tonight and a few of these pictures are his. He's not the photographer in the family, and he was able to get some nice shots too.
Here's a squirrel from earlier today.
I can't wait for a full moon to try out more moon shots. My birds didn't cooperate yesterday, but next week-end I think we'll head to St Marks Florida for the annual Monarch Butterfly Migration festival. It should be a good time to try out the camera some more.
