Still overwhelmed but improving
I have started field testing my new toy.
It has now helped me identify which sorts of goldeneyes are down at the beach (Common). And I was thrilled to manage to stop MOST of the flitting about of one chickadee as we found ourselves surrounded by them this morning. I still have to work on my landscape shooting, and learn to stabilize and focus somewhat better.
More amazing, with the right diopter adjustment on the viewfinder, I will be able for the first time in my life to take pictures without wearing glasses. (Well, to take them with any confidence and competence.)
