Hi all,

Here's a recent collection of SX30 shots of various birds in trees. These were taken from @25-50 ft in various light... all at full zoom (840mm eq) and hand-held.

Bully Robin:

We also have a dedicated SX30 Slideshow now which we're updating on a regular basis if anyone here would like to see it. When opened to full-screen, this slideshow will display higher resolution versions of the images than we generally post in the forums:

Great looking shots Kenn... they Red-bellied in the second photo looks like a young one... and your Bluebirds are as beautiful as ever... Happy New Year to you and Temple.

Fine shots, Kenn but I suspect the SX30 didn't capture them all by itself. Might there have been a skilled shooter somewhere in the mix?

Thanks everybody, we love to share our birds, and always appreciate your encouraging comments.

Happy New Year and good shooting to all our friends at POTN. :)

Great stuff Kenn, I just learned that Robins dont necessarily migrate south if there is a food supply for them they will stick around


A little L goes a long way.

Really great shots from a SX30 Ken.
Obviously you are very happy with the camera - the specs are good; would you be even more pleased if it had the ability to shoot RAW? Or does it not bother you? I have never used anything but RAW; would I miss it?

Happy New Year.
