Re: Pictures From Northern Utah, P950

A great collection, Mark. The shot of the grebe with her young may be the best. The size of the antlers on those twin mule deer bucks is amazing and they weren't completely out of velvet at the time. Those who buy this camera and then complain that they can't get sharp photos, should be encouraged by these. Many of us have served time in photographic purgatory because of the pandemic and I think the time is near when we can break out.

The perfect camera for social distancing

Steve,

Thanks for looking and the comment, lucky to live in Utah so many great places for pictures. The buck pictures were taken on Antelope Island which is only 15 minutes from home.

Sherman,

Thanks! I still follow whats going on in this forum, lots of great inputs and advice. Wish some people had better success with picture IQ, I have had just about all of the Coolpix cameras and never had a problem.

I took your advice and bought the lens hood you suggested, works great as long as you don't shoot at wide angle and I don't bother with a lens cap anymore.

Have not been out much taking pictures, our daily temperatures have been over 100 for weeks.

Thanks for looking, always appreciate your feedback.

Thank you!

I find the P950 can take outstanding images with practice and the right settings.

Antelope Island is definitely on my 'places to visit' list.  Amazed you can get so close to big game animals and those are some fine photos!

If you get out this way let me know, there are several other places close by that offer great picture taking opportunities.
