What comes to mind when you hear the word “zoom?”
Maybe the word brings back memories of the kid’s television show that my son used to watch; the one where they spoke Ubbi Dubbi. (And don’t even get Jodi over at Life In Between started on that, but do check out her blog – it’s a favorite of mine!)
Or perhaps when you hear the word “zoom” you immediately think of a Mazda commercial, and then have to say it twice.
Well, when I hear the word “zoom,” it makes me thankful for my Canon SX50HS. It has a lot of zoom and is great for bird photography. Oh, I know it’s not a major league fancy camera, basically just a powershot on steroids, but it allows me to capture some shots I would otherwise miss.
Like this afternoon. I was outside and saw a flash of wings in my neighbor’s yard. When I zoomed in, I was thrilled to discover that it was a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
I love how his markings (you can tell its a male by the red chin) are more vibrant against the gray sky.
And if you’re in the market for a camera, and you like to take bird pictures, consider a Canon’s SX50HS – I think you’ll love it!
