What I meant was that a 3800 Fuji 6x optical is not going to be able to give the type of results like you would find here. I could not get close enough, and the camera lacked diversity in it's abilities.

Also, it was an older camera with a really big low light issue. It could not focus in low light. Also bulkier then cameras today which have even more options, and pixels.

Here is a picture of aHawkover the highway. I was able to get with-in 50ft of it. The camera could do no justice in the situation. It simply does not have the reach, nor the speed, andcan not produce the vibrance I seek. Here is the picture anyway.

Since though, I have bought the REBEL XTI along with the70-300mm IS F4-5.6 USM lens. I am getting some practiceand hope to produce shots better then this.

The point is that 6x is a wholely RELATIVE term..... 6x what????

6x normal is pretty good but most virtually all P&S are not.... reality is they are 6x several steps wide so really only maybe 3 or 4x a normal (1x normal vision) lens magnification.
