Still say once you go Canon you will use nothing else. The one I mentioned early on in this thread is about my 4th Canon. Heres a couple resized pics. The bird was taken about 200 feet away across the river and the turtle was only 20 feet at most. Both were shot in Auto mode.

Hi Major Attitude

I have had another look at the Canon you suggested.

For me I dont think I need / desire anymore zoom than 24x, plus the Canon is more expensive. The only other thing that would put me off it that it is bigger and heavier and I would rather go alot lighter/smaller if that was possible.

But hey I am up for looking at all suggestions

I'm with you. I didn't want to either. It can be a bit heavy. The reviews were so much better on it then all the other cameras that I bit the bullet. Honestly I will just use it around my home as I recently moved to a little house on the river with so much nature, otherwise I was content with my Canon pocket camera for most things. Everybody is different and while I usually am not brand loyal I still think they are one of the best on every level.

Yes, I'm still worried about the big & heaviness of the Fz47.

Today I noticed the Fujifilm FinePix S1500

http://www.dpreview.com/products/fuj...i_finepixs1500

However, reviews and spec arnt so good. What do people think?

There must be other smaller / lighter versions of the FZ47?

Mornin Gloozt!

I'd love to know what would be your choice of your next camera?

I have gone full loopy loo looking at them, bit like my brain.

Someone else said the Lumix was faster, but like you mention faster doing what exactly.

The Fz47 looks bulky on the utube reviews but compared to similar spec cameras it is actually smaller and lighter, maybe it is just the design. I'll end up having to make one out of papier mache so I know what it feels like to hold, lol

Hi mate

Today I ordered my camera the FZ47!!!!!!!!!!!

I have bought it in the US because it is so much cheaper, so I'll have to wait a week or so for delivery.

So YAY!

I'll keep you posted and hope you have a good time on the lake

That's exactly how I felt!

I have downloaded the manual so I can start reading that.

I'll need to buy a carry case, but I'll wait til I get it. I'll prob be able to get something on ebay.

Funny how time goes slow when you are waiting for something, doh!

Hi Glooz

Still getting used to the camera. How do I show a photo in this actual post? Not that I have taken anything exciting yet.

It's def quick like I wanted it. The screen is of good quality. So far so good. The colours look better than they look in real life, lol. Gona try and print out the manual as it's easier to sit and read.

Hi

Great stuff on the camera choice and glad you are so enthusiastic about it, photography is an art form and doesnt matter what you take.

Could also try http://imageshack.us/ for image hosting, I use this at times on the forum.

Yes Bagpuss (aka Mr Tibbs) is my eternal willing subject and I will prob bore people with photos of him, the close-ups are me experimenting with the zoom. The only prob wiv Tibbs is that he follows me around everywhere so it isnt so easy catching him far enough away to be able to zoom in, doh!



He has great fangs!

But he was getting a bit bored

This photo was at full zoom, I have no idea which setting it was on (am still working on that), but I think the quality is pretty cool.

Who's David Baily?
Not awake yet.

BTW Here's how one of my drawings progress. The rear wheel of the bike is about finished and I am starting the fender/seat area
Thanks, gotcha re TinyPic size.

Re your bike picture. You must have the patience of a seriously saintly Saint! Awesome. It is interesting seeing how you build the picture. Are you working from a photo? So are you self-taught right, I think you said, so how did you get into that? Cool . Once you get into it, is it a relaxing activity? Feel free to post as you go if you dont mind sharing
