    Hi Tony,
    I love your photos. Especially the ones with the really high magnification.
    I have a question and thought maybe you could help me given your knowledge of photography:

    I do a lot of hiking in Glacier Nat Pk.
    I do see a lot of wildlife (grizzly, bighorn sheep) that are pretty far away.

    I have a Nikon D3400 w/ a 70-300 lens.
    But… I’d like to zoom in better to get better pics of these animals.

    Would a 600x lens help a lot and be compatible w/ my camera?
    Can you recommend one?

    thanks,
    John

      Posting images on the web does not require 6oo mm. Get a pocket camera with digital zoom and crop.

        Seriously dude?
        Tony has posted pics where the object is very very far away. And he was/is proud of his equipment that is capable of doing so.
        The animals I am looking to snap photos of are over 1/2 mile away. Sometimes even over 1 mile away. And that’s why people are using high powered telescopes to watch them from the parking lots.

        Your advice is as useless as T on a B.

        • If you want great zoom get a Nikon Coolpix P900 or P1000.. Magic photos of the Moon with these or anything far away

            Thank you.
            I just checked out the P1000 — as you suggested — at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZOpBHGUBxY.
            All I can say is: wow!

            I went to a website that compared the P900 to P1000: the latter has a zoom to 2000mm; the latter 3000 mm.

            the weight difference is big:
            899 g vs 1415 g 516 g lighter for the P900.

            1.4Kg is ~3 lbs.

            Now I’ve got a decision to make — but a good one.
            Thanks again for the direction!

          Good Suggestion Janet Marshall.

          jb, FWIW Tony shoots a P1000. He went from the P900 to that. I shoot a P900 (wish I had the P1000).

            Tnx! that’s 3 up votes for the P1000.
            I just priced at amazon: $1K.

            I also priced a 600x lens for my “old” d3400 it came in at $870.

            Seems to pay to get the P1000.

            tnx again,
            JB

    I wish I could say that about some butt head here in central Indiana: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/12/22/us/bald-eagle-shot-indiana-trnd/index.html
    I’m afraid that if I was around and caught the person that did it red handed that I would spend the rest of my days in prison.

    Before this AGW fanaticism environmentalists would be screaming murder about the death of so many birds. Has anyone forgotten the delta smelt in California? The spotted owl? Life was overturned because of them. Now… nothing. Bald eagle… what’s that?

    Time to clean the sensor.
