While Kathy and I were in the Bay Area, visiting our families over the Thanksgiving holiday, my son Ethan and wife Flo presented me with an early X-mas present: a Nikon Coolpix P900 Superzoom camera!
Up till now, I have been using the predecessor of the P900 – the P600, which comes with a 60X optical zoom. This is a very handy camera, which I have used to great advantage photographing birds. The P900, however, comes with a 83X optical zoom, and other improvements. It’s an outstanding upgrade, and I couldn’t wait to get out and take some photos with it.
The Berkeley Marina is always a good place to spot water birds, and, on this occasion, I saw a green heron and numerous black-crowned night herons, amongst others.
Another favorite spot is the Alameda shoreline.
I am very pleased with my new camera! What do you think?
