Our new Nikon P900 - liking it so far after our first outing
« on: April 30, 2017, 06:50:56 PM »
We got it for Bridget and I to use for wildlife photography.  Not bad when we had a super excited eight-year old jumping around shaking the tripod.

Nice.  How big are you shooting pics at?  Like to see a 1mb one before downsizing  :tup:

All the defaults are still set.  I will look when I get home. 

I was looking at setting up one of the spotting scopes for digiscoping and came across this as an option to digiscoping on a few of the bird forums. 

For ~ $500 for the camera I think we made a much better decision to go this way.  I think this setup will be much more user friendly for the kids to use.
