P1000 First Shots and Thoughts
2

So I was able to purchase a P1000 today as stock is arriving in Canadian camera stores.  While I read all about the camera and how big it was, it was a shock  to hold it in the store; like holding a bazooka.  However, if feels well built and balances well in my hands.  A few shots from today that include the moon and an animals.  It is a challenge shooting at f8 and with animals that move as the shutter speed needs to be high and ISO way higher than I would like; I use continuous shooting to see if one pic in a series is sharp.  It looks like this will be a fun camera, however.  Is there a way to program rear button AF?  Tomorrow I may take it to the local zoo to see how it performs.
