Hi All,

I vote 'Yes'

Yesterday we were at the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, New York City.

Suddenly 2 Redtail Hawks were soaring about the Unisphere. I knew they were around because when we arrived I heard some squirrels screaching their warning about the hawk, but I saw no hawk.

Two Birders were looking into a London Pane tree and suddenly the hawk flew out toward the Unisphere. The Birders followed and started looking up at the Unisphere.

I walked upto them and this is what they were looking at:

4 images follow, all 75x Zoom, VGA full size 640x480, Auto Levels, a touch of Focus Magic, Shadow/highlight in Photoshop Elements 4. A rather dark, cloudy, cool day for June.

Mother Nature is amazing. And to me, my H9is amazing as well.

Regrads,

Nicholas

It feels good to walk around with a camera that can help reveal the world around you right there as you take a shot.

I showed the close-up image to th birders and they were happy to get such a close-up look at the baby hawk.

Hi Nicholas,

Very nice shots, I have to agree with you on this one, I love the ability to crazy zoom in on things with the H9, I've used the 75x on many occasions, see one of my pics below taken a few weeks ago.

Did you use the 1.7x Tele on your shots?

Thanks All, It was an exciting find. Glad you liked the shots.

No Tele-Converter, didn't have time to slip it on. Didn't want to miss the baby hawk raising his head from the nest.


Nice Moon Shot.

Nicholas

Nicholas,

You're saying that you was taken use the digital zoom at 75x, that is just unreal. I didn't think one could get anything at that level of zoom. Thanks for proving me wrong, guess I'll be turning my digital zoom back on next time I'm out shooting.
