Today, I got a new megazoom camera for documenting purposes. I have had a lot of instances during my birding career when such a camera could have been helpful in proving my identification of birds. The Sony Cyber-Shot HX400V bridge camera sports a massive 24-1,200mm equivalent zoom range which is more than enough for general birdwatching. The photos are not exceptional but good enough for blogging and other social media purposes. Its price tag is very good and making this camera a great value for the money. I think it will be a great gear for our Scottish birdwatching trip in May.
I share a couple of shots I took this afternoon in a quite overcast, nearly rainy weather at the nearby Mount Farm Lakes. Photos were downloaded from the camera using it as Wi-Fi to my iPad Pro. All photos were slightly sharpened in Snapseed and in a few cases slightly cropped (starlings).
