Hi All, there has been some good advice given out in this latest thread, re; 
advanced point and shoot cameras and their virtues V their failings when it 
comes to photographing birds. I've noticed over the years as they have gotten 
more advanced that more people are trying them on pelagics but I think they are 
a bit deficient when it comes to tracking something as dynamic as a tubenose in 
full flight for example. Okay for Albies sitting on the water but that is about 
it. For those of you who are switching to point and shoots because of size & 
weight, you may wish to consider the latest APS C sensor offering from Canon 
(no, I have no vested interests in the company). It's the soon to be released 
Canon EOS 100 D and it is practically the size of the mirrorless Canon EOS M 
and will fit in the palm of your hand. Combine this with one of the more 
compact super zoom lenses eg. Sigma or Tamron and you will have a compact, 
reasonably light fairly proficient combo, which will deliver m
 ore than reasonable images. Just a thought.
On another note, I now have 3 spaces available for the April 20th Southport 
Pelagic. Contact Paul Walbridge on (PH) (W) 07 3139 4584 (H) 07 3256 4124 
Cheers - Paul W.
