Trumpeters on Snake River by my home. Lumix 60x

I took these pics on the Snake River using my 60 X Lumix or other camera. I know that my son was using my Lumix when he took the pic of the Trumpeter Swan shaking its wings which I put in my site banner (above).

I decided to see what the Ezvid free software was like these days. I had some problems with it in the past. Actually, Movie Maker works a bit better except I have found that Movie Maker can cause problems when you are trying to edit a video.

Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera with 83x Optical Zoom


Nikon COOLPIX P900 Digital Camera with 83x Optical Zoom and Built-In Wi-Fi (Black) with DBPREMIUM 16GB Memory Card + Fast Memory Card Reader + 3 Year Worldwide Warranty

First I had a Cannon that gave me 15X. then a Fujifilm that gave me 30x, then a Lumix that gave me 60X. I also have a Canon T5 with a 300mm lens and 2X extender. Now I’m going to have to get this baby that gives 87X. I’m just going to wait as the price on these cameras go down after they first come out. I’ll tell you more when I get mine.

  • 83x Optical Zoom, 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom super telephoto lens with Dual Detect Optical VR
  • 16 MP CMOS image sensor
  • Full manual exposure control
  • Swiveling Vari-angle display and high-resolution eye-level viewfinder
  • Built in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) for instant sharing

I’ll probably get his kit rather than just the camera.

Why do I want more power? I like to take pics of the Bald Eagles that hang out around here (In Wendell, ID across the Snake River from my town). They come in the winter to feed on fish scraps from our commercial hatcheries. Also, I shoot ducks at long range, often over 200 meters.

So, I will be getting this camera!

It’s getting bad! I have so many pairs of binoculars, scopes and camera that things are cluttered.
