From the Archive: New Camera! (January 2022)

This past November (2021) I got myself a new camera. Without geeking out too much on the selection process here, the short version is I wanted a flexible single lens camera that could reach birds from a distance as well as do a good job on landscape and travel shots, with a fast enough lens to capture birds in flight and in low-light shadowy forests. I ended up with a Sony RX10-iv. I have a lot yet to learn, but I am quite happy with it, and looking forward to continued experimentation.

Here are some of my first efforts, starting with a cool morning in our backyard, followed by outings to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, Jackson Bottom Wetlands, and Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge.
