    You guys are getting me interested in breaking out my old 35 mm SLR. I have a Konica with a bunch of lenses that I havn't used for a long time. I takes wonderful pictures, even tho it is a bit heavy and cumbersome. I still use my Cannon underwater camera in 35mm and take the film to WalMart for developing, they put it on a disc too. I might do the same with the SLR to take landscape and travel pix, but not hunting...too heavy!

    Thats why I was wondering. In my opinion a guy taking a close up picture of an elk at 50 yards has more skill than someone who just has the money to afford the high buck full frame cameras and 10 grand plus lenses. The biggest lens I use is a 300mm, which is all i can afford, but i know some people use 1.4x magnifications which helps the focal length, but the quality drops.

    Mt biggest lense is a 125x250 zoom and I use a 2x magnifier on it so I get a 500. You really have to be careful as the converter really steps down the light. But I have taken some great waterfowl and landscape picts with it.

    Muskie I use the Nikon TC14 teleconverter and a 55-300mm lens that gives me about 12x and it takes stunning photos and video through my Nikon D3200

    Does it look just as good at 300 as 55? Im in the predicament of needing a new video camera or buying a better dslr...but the quality of the video is what i'm worried about with any larger focal lengths when it comes to dslr's.

    @ 300mm you have to put it in manual mode(I never use auto anyway) and really play with the settings. I wish I had an example to share but I don't. These are the best I could come up with.

    Taken at about 150 yards-Manual mode-140mm with 1.4x teleconverter f/5 1/1000s ISO 250


    Taken at about 475 yards-Manual Mode-300mm with 1.4x teleconverter f/5.6 1/640s ISO 110

    I assume you have a full frame camera, not just an uncropped image right? Do you play with the ISO or just the shutter speed and aperture? Does the video look as good as the stills at those distances?
