Hi Vickie, those shots came out really well. The 48x zoom doesn't seem to suffer much at all. I have had mixed results with the 48x, some come out looking like no digital zoom had been applied and others, while others weren't quite as good.

I have just ordered a 1.5x teleconvertor, which I should get on Monday, so I am keen to try it out and see what its quality is like.

Thanks for the comments, Rodger. I'm not sure I am getting the most out of the iZoom cropped Raw files. The iZoom Jpegs often look better if you don't look close. I was happy using EZ Zoom except for the fact you had to change the settings, and, as you know, time is critical with some bird shots. Using iZoom, it is so fast and easy and it's great that you get that cropped Raw. But it takes time in PP. Also shooting Raw does slow down writing to card after a burst.

You are doing so well w/o a TC, Rodger. Will be interested in your TC experience.
