I quite like it myself so decided to try to HDR it up a bit. It is about my first success with HDR by the look of it.


And now an obligatory Meerkat picture.

That top photo (the one with the rocks) is fantastic Sanchia - where is it? Loving the tiger too

This seems like a good place to ask this: I'm in the market (or will be soon) for a new camera, but I have no idea which one. I know there's a thread a few pages back in OT about DSLRs but I've actually been thinking about getting a bridge camera, as I'm not a serious photographer but it would be nice to have something with a little bit of SLR functionality. Is anyone here using a bridge, or know anything of them? Recommendations/avoid-at-all-costs?

It was in the aviary at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Park in Norfolk. They did quite a good job of making it look like it was outside.

I used to have a Fuji bridge camera before I upgraded to my current Canon and found it very good (although it did have an annoying focus thing where you could not manually focus if you wanted to take a picture through something like branches etc. but had to focus on something approx the same distance away then lock the focus and take your picture although I believe they have fixed this now). The good thing about the Fuji is that they tend to have a very good optical zoom and the lens are very good.

http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/equipment/advice/501485/best-bridge-camera-of-2013.html

gives some idea of what is out there now but looking at the prices you could get an entry level DSLR for almost the same price.

I have also found this site quite good for camera reviews as they provide good level of detail on picture quality etc.

Thanks Sanchia - I didn't actually realise that entry level DSLRs had come down in price so much. Quite tempted by one of them now

Thank you,

I just wish my camera was quicker as the image a few milliseconds later on the snow leopard was far better.

A new camera which I am still getting used to the settings (the noise on the flowers is due to the auto ISO going too high).

A 700D. It is quite noticeably better than the 1000D in terms of nearly double pixel quality (The blackbird above is a significant crop which I could not have done on the 1000D) and the continuous shot is far quicker although the auto ISO is a bit much so I have turned it off (it has a tendency to go to 1600 ISO if a cloud goes over the sun). Tomorrow I go out for a walk with my girlfriend and probably annoy her by stopping a lot to take pictures.

Some lovely shots there Sanchia. The Blackbird and purplish flower are excellent.
I've been tossing up whether to buy an IS100 - 400 Canon lens or the new Sigma 150 - 500 to help with my bird shots but either way I'm going to have to upgrade my camera body too from the 1000d to at least the 700d or better to make the new lens worthwhile.
Meanwhile these are taken with the 1000d with a 70 - 250 canon lens.

I have to admit I am noticing a difference with the 700D over my 1000D. I am still playing with it at the moment rather than actively taking photos. Not that I don't still really like my 1000D and will be using it at times when I may be in a dodgy camera situation (I may be canoeing on the Norfolk Broads this summer). The first and second pictures in particular really stand out Hozay.

Whenever it is misty I always think "I wish I had a camera". I never have one with me at the time. Luckily UTB had one and a nice photo was taken.




My extension tubes work with this one as well which is good.

Cheers guys

I cropped the image a bit to frame it better but that was all.

Some stunning shots there Sanch! Really vibrant.

It's an amazing and fascinating place UTB. Go in early spring ( March - early April, cherry blossom time ) or mid to late Autumn ( Oct - Nov, autumn colour time ) and you won't know where to point your camera.
Cherry Blossoms, temples and Castles, onsen villages in the mountains, Tokyo street fashion, Mt Fuji and the lakes, Japanese gardens, it's a photographers paradise. The people are nice too. and the food, omg the food.....
I'm heading back there in a few weeks, can't wait.

You got a picture of an elusive Red Panda! I thought they were like vampires and their images never came out on camera (at least whenever I try to take a picture of one).

I have a day off so went to the zoo to test the camera. Between downpours I got some half decent pictures.

Another great set of photos Sanchia. Are they from the 700d ? The Snow Leopard and duck shots are particularly impressive and good to see you caught the elusive red panda in a good moment.

I've been tossing up for months which lens to buy so yesterday I finally decided and ordered a 70d body
After doing some research I thought it might be better to upgrade my camera first then get a better lens later because I really need the higher ISO and having a video option is a bonus too.
Should have the new camera in a day or two, giving me a couple of weeks to set it up and practice a bit before my trip to Japan.

They are from the 700D. I am using the same lens but it is focusing faster and better with the new body. I am certain you will be getting some great shots with a 70D.

I believe you will enjoy the variable angle touch screen as it speeds up the alteration of setting and if using real view can be angled so you can take pictures around corners and so the real view does not get glare from the sun. You should be able to get some quality crops with that pixel level. I would suggest stocking up on some 32 or 64gb level 10 memory cards though as the larger size pictures can be a tad memory hungry (and if using RAW you need an up to date photo editing suite as I had to upgrade to Elements 12 as my old version was incompatible).
