I rented a 400f2.8 Canon for my 7D. I soon after bought a 70-300 f4-5.6. Hand holdable on sunny days

I have a FujiFilm EXR.

15X Zoom. 16 Mega Pixels.

It will fit in most pockets. It takes 4 to 6 MB pictures. All my pics on my trip south thread were taken w this camera. I keep a 6" tripod handy on the boat and occasionally in the car. I hand hold it for sharper pics in low light or fast subjects.

The biggest complaint we had w the earlier camera is that we had a terrible time seeing the view finder in sunlight.

These two zoomed in pics were taken zoomed a little w the camera when taken and zoomed a lot more on my i-mac computer. This FujiFilm camera costs about $400.

Eric I've seen the picture of Willy and the Dashew before but what is the little pilot house boat in the last photo? It looks really interesting to me.

Doubt there is standing room in that pilothouse! No thanks, as I'm usually standing/pacing in my pilothouse.

About the boat I don't know. We just passed her in the vicinity of Bella Bella. Took the pic to remember her. She's definitely my kind of boat. Bridge up high enough for great visibility and lower than a FB. We can't criticize as we don't know if she has a ballasted deep hull. Mark I think this boat is quite a bit larger than yours and I'd be VERY surprised if she didn't have plenty of headroom on the bridge. Here's a better picture.

She may have been a product of someone thinking about the Willard 36 Pilothouse. See the rondy pics in the Willard/Fales section. Decided to keep the bridge lower, further fwd and perhaps the pilothouse is built light w plywood and Lexan windows. The railing's low and the anchor equipment is minimized. Again my kind of boat.

She vaguely reminds me of some Glen-L designs I've seen in the past.

I have a Nikon point and shoot. A Olympus EP2, and a Canon 7d. For snaps I use the Nikon or Olympus. For photography I use the Canon.
