Re: Shots of feather detail would be more informative

At least for what I would be interested in.

Kenn Threed has posted 100s of bird pictures shot with the SX30 that have better feather detail than I've seen on any camera, P&S or other. I think it has more to do with him than the camera, but it shows what it can do in the right hands.

I don't expect to see his kind of pictures as examples, but would like to see some zoomed in shots of birds that show detail. I have the SX40 and love it, but I would also buy the P510 for the reach if all else were equal.

Some of my better bird pictures have came from the SX40 over my DSLRs too. So the P510 also seems like a good bet to me. I'll wait to see real world results first, of course.

Thanks for your comments.
