This was funny as heck,,,walking on a trail,,looked up and thought this was a bird at first,,lol,,,looked like it was perching...

Taken with the DX6490 full optical zoom,,with the TCON17 attached....1/90,140 ISO,3.7,,not bad considering this was hand held at 646mm at 1/90 second

Awesome!

And a cool coincidence.

I too am a New Brunswicker.

I too have a Tcon-17 (purchased this month)

and the first thing I shot with it...???

http://www.s5000.net/forums/yaBB/cgi...num=1105560677

...a red squirrel.

Alas, I do not own a Kodak DX6490,

but that was on my short list

before I settled on the,

agruably somewhat similar, Fuji S5100.

Nice job Brian, I like the way he's

peering down at you - very nice.

regards,

---Swampy.

Thanks Swampy,,hey,,where in NB are you,,i know someone on one of these forums from Fredericton,how do you like the Fuji S5100,,,,,,and man do i have a clock for you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....bought this off e-bay about a year ago......tell us about your findings on the camera,,good and bad,,,like to hear about other cameras and how they work......

Oh,,,here`s another squirrel,,,,this one was really funny,,,walked right up to him,,,,and he was just screaming mad,,lol

Here`s the clock,,,,sorry but i was to lazy to plug it in,,just went upstairs and shot it at 1/10 sec,tungsten white balance and 400 ISO,,,And ran it through pic cooler for noise removal...this has a huge LED clock at the bottom..

Oh,,and have you tried pic cooler yet,,it`s a very decent noise removal program,,,and free,,,you can download it at the link below,,,you then e-mail the guy and he`ll give you a code for it,,free too,i have noise ninja,,,but this is too easy,,and works extremely well too..

Seriously though if anyone wants to try this noise removal program it`s free and the guy is extremely nice when you e-mail for the code,,,and i`ve gotten no spam or anything due to it so it`s safe too....

This is an excellent shot, Brian. Looks like he's just about to jump through your camera.

Hi Brian.

I'm a paranoid hermit. I'm always afraid some

axe-wielding ex-girlfriend is going to find me on the

internet. ...so suffice it to say I'm a New Brunswicker. <lol>

Dude! I think I like this second squirrel even better

thanthe first - the way he's marched right down to

confront you for trespassing. The dof is good,

the composition is good - you're no slouch!

Clock - too cool, another coincidence. I won't try to

talk you out of it though, I'm not really a brand loyalist.

A camera's a big purchase for me, so I made my choice

quite carefully, based on price and features, not brand.

I actually compiled a table (my "short list") of seven

comparable models, I even downloaded all the manuals

in PDF. In the 6490's favour:

32 more pixels (horizontally, 2304 vs 2272) and

bursts of 6 frames (vs bursts of 3).

But, other factors led me to choose the 5100.

My second choicemight have been the

Panasonic FZ15 but it was just a bit pricey.

I really love the 5100,but of course, one always

has a few little complaints:

Too plasticy. It's really light, I'ld rather it had some heft.

The filter threads are plastic (I leave a UV filter on

permanently so I don't wear out those plastic threads).

I hate that the battery door is right beside the tripod mount

because I keep my monopod on all the time (or I would like to,

but I have to keep unscrewing it when I change batteries -

though in fairness, I get hundreds of shots from a set of nimmies).

On the whole though, I'm very pleased with my 5100.

Keep shooting those squirrels! You could have a whole series,

"Adventures of Mr. Squirrel". <lol>

regards,

---Swampy.
