There have been plenty of threads about digital photography on this
list, and a few comments on digiscoping (plonking a digital camera onto
the pointy end of a telescope). Bob Inglis's "Notes" series on digital
cameras is also a very valuable source of information.
Many of us want to take digital photos of birds ... OK we already do,
but we want to take photos where the bird is big enough to make it
obvious that it was the intended subject! So far most of my digital
bird snaps have been fairly mediocre landscapes.
I've already had advice from a few people, but I'm keen to hear from
birders who have already tried using a big optical zoom on a digital
camera, and those who have tried digiscoping - especially if you've
done it with a less-than conventional setup (i.e. all the digiscoping
websites preach Nikon 4500 & Kowa or Swarovski scope). I know that if
you use the best optics you probably get the best photos, but for those
of us paying school fees there have to be other options!!
Comments straight to me please, or to the mailing list if you feel your
comments are appropriate for (a) a wider audience and (b) permanent
