Default Pretty little girl

Shot with the HS-20, I thought the bokeh on this was pretty interesting.

great birds
one of the things I like to shoot are birds, but now , I cannot get close enough as my camera is only 6x optical. Using a teleconverter without a tripod is impossible to get good shot. With, it is not always possible to set up and the bird has flown away. Even setup shots are not so good at full zoom and teleconverter.

i am really liking what I'm seeing with the HS-20

@ Daveso: Do you have one or have one on order?

I have a S7000 right now.
Researching for a new camera. Want a superzoom. The HS-20 seemed to be the right fit for me, but as stated in another thread, was seriously turned off to it by the chatter over at DP. Much different story here, and looking at further reviews, its looking better all the time.

I have to wait a bit as I do not have the cash to currently purchase a camera, so more research is still in the works. I believe there are a couple of announced cameras coming out soon, but the HS-20 fots nicely with what I want. The only caveat for me is that a stronger zoom would be nice, but after watching that safari review, it looks as if a teleconverter can get me what I want.
The s7000 just does not seem to have the power to utlize the teleconverter correctly, even on tripod. It just does not have enough light gathering capability and is too slow. I use it a lot on manual settings, but even then, the result is often blurred to a certain degree. A lot is probably me, but not all for sure.
