Can we go for wildlife photography, bird photography without having to carry bulky tripod, heavy lenses & big camera? The answer is yes. I brought with me just the latest Sony Super Zoom compact camera that small enough to fit in my pocket yet can produce optical zoom that is equivalent to 780mm (35mm conversion) to Admiralty Park this morning.
This is how the camera looks like when placed on the keyboard of my Surface tablet PC.
Just watch the video below to see for yourself the zoom power of this cute camera!! The video are taken without tripod, just hand held.
If you are looking for a handy camera that can take far away object & macro shots but lazy to carry heavy equipment or multiple lens, this camera is perfect. A great travel camera that won't weight you down on your trip. However, if you are DSLR user and photo quality is your top most criteria, this camera might not suit you as this camera don't capture raw format. With a Exmor R CMOS sensor, there is a limit when you compare the photo quality of this camera with DSLR. With the weight/size advantage & cheaper than entry level DSLR camera, I will still say this camera is a good buy! I shall try this camera on low light/night shooting in my next trip. :-)
