More power!!!

February 17, 2013

Thanks to my tax refund, I was finally able to get the lens I wanted, which was an Opteka 650 to 1300 millimeter lens.  This lens will enable me to get shots of animals too skittish to be approached, and up until now, I haven’t been able to get any shots of.

As a quick test, I took three shots of a boat from my living room.  The first one is a normal view with a normal lens (about 35 mm).  The second shot is 5 times the normal lens.  The third shot is at the full 1300 millimeters.  The last shot is somewhat blurry, but I didn’t have time to take the shot properly.  I am going to give it a better test tomorrow.

One thing to keep in mind, I did not crop any of these images.  You are seeing these pictures exactly as I saw them.

I hope you enjoy.
