Finally...the P950 shoots the Great Blue Heron
6

For weeks before receiving my P950, this GBH was always lingering around...until the day the Fed Ex guy delivered the P950

Been waiting ever since...but today was the day!

4000mm -  2x Digital zoom

He stuck around long enough for me to shoot him

The hunt

The Catch

Posed long enough for me to zoom in to 4000mm to shoot him:

4000mm-  2x digital zoom

That is some impressive detail, especially with the long reach. Excellent captures.

They say: Seek and you shall find.

Good to see Nikon has improved Digital zoom well. In good light you can get acceptable images even at 4000mm equiv. Tremendous.

BTW, what about the cam's battery economy. What would be your estimate?

Stay home. Be safe. Beat Corona.

Kind regards,
Avian

Your samples look good but are only about 3 mp. How do they look at full size?

Yes , indeed

A nice option to have.

BTW, what about the cam's battery economy. What would be your estimate?

Seems better than I was expecting.

Can get over 1,000 images .

Not sure if shooting video

Not crazy abut the battery meter.

Seems to stay on full forever, then once it drops...not long before a battery replacement is needed.

Bought an off brand set of 2 with charger for cheap.

seems fine, but OEM seems better. .

Stay home. Be safe. Beat Corona.

Thanks

Same to you and yours

OUTSTANDING as usual ANAYV. Thanks for sharing.

Stay safe and keep on shooting.

Can't wait to get a hold of that P950. Just waiting patiently for my bonus to come in.
