I'm using a moderately priced Canon Power Shot SX530 HS. Nothing at all real fancy, but I think it's about the right level for me.
First, let me show the amazing zoom feature:
|Centerville (Deuel Creek) Canyon from the side of my house. About a mile away as the eagle flies.|
(oh, yes. There are eagles up there!)
So I zoom in on the flag and get a shot like this:
|The Star-Spangled Banner still waves.|
|And even closer. I'm getting some pixelation evident on the flag pole.|
But you can still clearly determine there is a lanyard tie of some sort there.
|The neighbor's westernized cape cod features rather prominently|
|We're picking up a little wavy air from the heat from that distance more than any pixelation here I believe.|
|And here, pixelation and heat waves.|
The cool part here is that while a bit blurred, I can clearly see that the angel has been repaired from the lightning damage of a few weeks back. I don't know when they did it, but it must have been rather promptly.
Although, I may just spend the rest of my life taking pictures of my flowers. Ah, Summer!
|Yellow Lilium Stars just coming out as they do every mid-June. Already here when we moved in.|
|A "President Lincoln" rose.|
|The bright pink roses already here when we came.|
