    Kevin...great photos!

    I agree with hoshour...hard to go wrong with Canon. I carry a Canon S95 in my day pack when I'm hunting and add a Canon SX10 with a 20x zoom when I'm scouting. The photos are not as good as Kevin's but then the set up is alot lighter. The 20x zoom helps with those long shots and checking out the animal's headgear. The S95 does a great job on landscape and after the kill photos.

    One thing I might add is that the new phones out now do a great job on close up photos. One of my hunting partners just sent me a CD with his photos from last year's deer hunt...they came out awesome. I think the phone was a 5G.

    I use a Canon 7D with various lenses. (Really eyeballing the new Tamron 150-600 lens). Documenting trips I tend to use a canon powershot SX20IS. A lot of my hunting buds are starting to use the canon SX50 for the 50x zoom and getting pretty good snapshots with them.

    Awesome pics. We have the Nikon d5100 and I really need to learn how to use it. Those pictures were awesome.

    Software really helps bring out the wow factor in an already good photo too. In the last few years I've been getting into software, HDR or high dynamic range software and a bunch of others. I’m finding that software is what really helps bring out what I see and or the feeling and emotion of the experience. I’m also finding the use of software in being able to take old pictures both early digital and pre digital. Taking out dust spots, noise, correcting sharpness or making contrast changes,toning, lighting, color just to list a few. The list goes on and on on what photo software can do. For me software and learning how to use them is almost as important as camera choice and composing good photos.







    Those are amazing Kevin!

    I guess I'm old fashioned, I still use a film camera, my old Canon underwater camera! I takes wonderful pixs and does have a closeup mode. Its totally waterproof and almost indestructible. I've used it for diving and my hunting pictures for over 20 years. I also have a digital underwater camera too, a Pentax Optio W60. I bought it several years ago when my wife and I went to Belize. Its ok, but I really like the simple point & shoot of my 35mm. I take the film to WalMart and get pictures and a disc back so I can add to my computer library.

    I have several Konica 35mms with lots of different lenses. I have considered buying a new digital body and an adaptor for the lenses. But it would be heavy and of course not water resistant.

    It took me a long time to go digital but I have to admit, I love the immediate result and the storage capability that digital offers. I'll need figure out how to put some of my film photos onto a disc someday. Most of my best photos are on film but I didn't save all of the negatives.

    AK - for $150 you can get a flatbed scanner that is specially suited to scan either photos or negatives. You can set the resolution you want. Of course, higher resolutions make for slower scanning speeds and larger files so you might want to pick and choose with ones to go higher quality on.
