Behind the Photographs

Due to the age of this blog, several different camera models have been employed as my go-to camera to photograph birds. From this blog’s inception in October 2009 until December 2010, that camera was a Canon PowerShot SX1, an advanced point-and-shoot. Early on, I also made posts about birding before I purchased the SX1, where I used a Canon PowerShot SX100.

During this time, I also digiscoped heavily, hooking up a Canon PowerShot S90 to a Swarovski attachment, and using it on my Swarovski ATS 65mm spotting scope.

In December 2010, I finally took the plunge into more advanced bird photography with a DSLR, the Canon EOS 60D with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens.

Now that I had the 60D, I started to digiscope less, although I did find myself capturing occasional images through my scope with my iPhone 4.

Today, I stand in roughly the same place, and continue to use my 60D on all of my outings. It’s a truly fantastic camera, one that I’m blessed to have.
