15x Zoom

I finally broke down and ordered a small, pocket size camera from It is the Fujifilm Finepix F505EXR and it came with a 4gb memory card. I just wanted the zoom feature, there are dials and other controls. I have it set on automatic for now. I can play with it for 30 days and decide if I like it enough to keep or if I will send it back to Amazon.

I want to get some close up pictures of the birds around here. 

Today was windy and cool, but the sun was out for most of the day, so I decided to walk around the campground and beach to try and find some birds. The Roseate Spoonbills were not here today, but I did see some other birds. 

I try to get out walking everyday, no matter what the weather is. I walked a little in the rain/drizzle the other day. Today I walked a mile on the beach with the wind at my back, but then I had to turn around and face the wind to get back to the RV. I'm not going as far as when the weather is nicer, but at least I am doing something.

I need to zoom in more and still be in focus.
I'll have to play with the controls on the camera.

  1. Love the new header. I bet you're going to have a lot of fun with that camera. Enjoyed the pictures.

  2. aw.... love KitKat... Haaaaa... damn cats

  3. These bird shots look pretty good. I have a Fujifilm Finepix 1500 which I like, but want something with more zoom also.
