Another HX300 Video---at 50X Plus a 44% Boost in Reach

This one shows a Rough-legged Hawk soaring over my neighborhood. With the Active mode zoom boost, it comes to 1,850mm. It doesn't look so bad as many others did. The stabilizer did well, with one little glitch by me. I've added a vid-cap photo below. If I was keeping this camera, I'd buy or build a lens adaptor tube and put on a 2.2X telextender. How do you think I and the stabilizer would be able to handle that? If I was rolling in money like most of you, I might just keep it to play around with its potential for extreme photography.
