I am at my sisters place and I am using her camera (another begged and borrowed one) today. When I started the clicking the birds around I thought the zoom felt much more powerful!
Finally, I looked around the lens and realized that the Canon Powershot SX29 has 560mm zoom. No wonder I struggle much more when I click pictures with my 70-300mm zoom. Will try to click a few more pictures tomorrow too. There are pigeons all around but there are Oriental White Eyes too! Have not managed to click a decent shot as of now. But who could have thought you would find Oriental White Eyes in Noida.
