bmullen,

WOW! This is an FZ20? How awesome to see that this camera can so some awesome stuff with the right person behind it.

What if any telezoom did you use?

I have an FZ20 with a raynox adapter and I just got the 1540 pro. I got it just after seeing your posts. You convinced me it was worth the purchase.

I look forward to hitting the benchmark you just set.

Very, Very Kewl..

All of them..

This is close to what I have seen normcar do with a higher end camera.

This proves the FZ20 is no slouch.

vIZnquest, thanks a lot for the compliments. I used the Raynox 1540with the Raynox adapterfor all of these shots. I sharpen and remove noise from all of my shots. I don't know if the guys with the DSLR's have to do that ornot. I also must say that Norm, and Woodmeister and others with the better cameras do get much more detail in their shots and also have the capability to crop more, too. But, having said that, I am happy with the results I can get from my camrera considering what it is. One draw back is that I never shoot any higher than iso 100 because of loosing too much detail to noise. Guys with the DSlR's often are shooting at iso 400 to 800 which alows them to get much better shutter speeds, especially on cloudy days or at dusk. One just has to learn to work around the limitations of a fixed lens camera if that is what one has.

Great shots mullen, these demonstrate clearly that it ain't the equipment that is of greatest importance but the user of the equipment. These photos are examples of how good photographs can be without breaking the bank on more expensive rigs.

Hi! I have a question for you. I just purchased an FZ20 and am looking to take pictures of birds and things of that nature. Yours turned out great! I see that you mentioned using a Raynox 1540 with a Raynox adapter - I'm not quite sure what these are, but I would be interested in purchasing them if it can help me get shots like this. Is there any certin model number or anything of the adapter that I will need, and do you need the adapter for the lens? I'm really new to this, so I'm sorry if it's a really stupid question. :G
