A friend asked me what kind of camera I used and I told him I used a Sony Camcorder (FDR-AX53) as a camera. One of the reasons, I explained, was the amazing range of focus that it allowed. I can focus in on something an inch away, like a flower bloom, or zoom in on something really far away.
The photo above is admittedly not great, but considering how far away I was (300 yards or 280 meters) it’s not bad. I took the shot while visiting friends. From their porch they have a far and narrow view of the Fraser River down below their house. I noticed a white spot on top of something dark, and wondered if it might be an eagle, but from that distance, I really couldn’t be sure. I grabbed my camcorder and zoomed in as much as I could at saw that it definitely was a bald eagle and took the photo.
