A Tale Of Two Cameras

A powershot on sterioids…that’s what I call my Canon SX50HS, which is usually the camera that I use to take pictures for this blog.  It works great for getting bird photos because it has a ton of ZOOM.  And yes, the capital letters are so you know I am not exaggerating!

My second camera is a Canon T3i Rebel, which sadly does not get nearly the use that it deserves.  Yesterday, I was feeling sorry for this lovely picture taking device and decided to give it a chance to be “bird camera for a day.”  Here are several photos courtesy of camera number two.

Northern Cardinal – female
Brown Thrasher
Blue Jay
Northern Mockingbird
Red-winged Blackbird
Chipping Sparrow
Yellow-rumped Warbler

Although I had to do a lot of cropping (it only has lowercase zoom) it did a better job than I thought.  I think the last picture is my favorite.

I probably will stick with the Powershot for most of my bird pictures, but I am determined to get the Rebel out more often.  No camera should stay tucked away in a case!

  1. Nice click! I love each and every photo you captures ☺️👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

  2. These are great. I have the same camera and love it. It’s really all about the lenses, anyway. What you do so well on your photos is to isolate the bird from the background, so that there are no ugly sticks interfering with the bird!

  3. It did a great job, Kathy! I will need to give my other Canon a shot as well in due time when I have invested in a better zoom, but I’m afraid it will never be as “usable” and light as the HS50 … I can’t pick a favorite here, they are all very good!

  4. I have the Rebel too. I need to learn how to use it better. My hubby got me a tripod for my birthday. Your photos are AMAZING! 😜🐦👍
