Hi all

I have put a small gallery of 18 bird species and a couple of plants that I
have taken with my recently acquired Fuji Finepix S5000. They're not
award-winning shots, but their OK. I have posted them to give you an idea of
what you can expect from hand-held shots and a 10X zoom digital camera. I
have had the camera for 3 weeks and I'm still learning how to use it - it
certainly does have a different "feel" than an SLR camera. Nevertheless,
after taking about 500 shots of all sorts of themes I have to say that I am
very, very happy with the purchase.

In terms of bird photography, its just great to be able to pull the camera
out and shoot away at an opportunistic moment, without having to think about
film processing costs. The glossy black cockatoo and musk lorikeet are
typical examples. I found a flock of 30+ musk lorikeets busily combing
through a eucalypt feeding on learps. I guess I took about 40shots, 10 came
out OK and the one illustrated is the best. There is always going to be a
place for film photography, nest shots spring to mind, but for opportunistic
moments that you can't plan for, I think this sort of medium is perfect.
