I should have mentioned that the playhouse is 225 yards away. Here are a couple of shots to give you more of a feel for how amazing it is to see those bolt heads at full zoom hand-held with such a slow shutter speed. First one is at maximum wide angle. The second one shows the scene at roughly the equivalent of a 50 mm lens on a 35 mm SLR.

I didn't reply as I'm very hard of hearing and don't hear things like that.

Had not really thought of printing it out. I wouldn't know where to start to take it to have it printed out as a panoramic shot. I imagine the local photo developing shop at wal mart wouldn't be able to do something like that.

Default Compare with 8800

mr_meg you have illustrated exactly what I was thinking when I was reading through this thread. Your pictures are vastly better than Jack's in every respect (sorry Jack). There is just no comparison.

I was thinking of getting a P90 to replace my Coolpix 8800, but that also produced way better results than anything I have seen here. I'm not sure what the problem is but right now I regret selling my 8800.

It's some time since you uploaded these images, did you buy a P90 in the end? What do you think of it?

Paul

Here are some 8800 images for comparison:

Taken at full zoom (10x) from a kayak on the water - cut his tail off but no camera shake.

Handheld on a sunless day, long exposure to capture movement.

Extreme macro

Very low light, long exposure - no visible noise

And here is my moon image, remember that this is less than half the zoom of the P90.
