My new camera....
« on: December 30, 2018, 10:28:33 AM »
So, for my gift to myself this year, I bought a new camera.
A Canon RebelT6. I bought it with a 75-300mm zoom lens to take pictures of wildlife.
Here are a couple pictures of birds, 15 yards away (taken through the kitchen window)
I don't think they turned out bad, but it's the closest I could zoom.

I'll prolly buy a bigger lens, cause I know a deer or turkey ain't gonna let me get that close.

What ya'll think?

I have always wanted to get a nice camera.  A digital one so no film. Maybe that's all they even have now.  Great excuse to go for a nice walk or drive on land or sea.  To take pictures.  Bet it's fun.

Looks great HD!  :happy1: Wish I had one. Gotta be a lot better quality than say looking at Reb's little humping bugs taken with a cell phone camera... :rotflmao:
