  1. EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

    Review by 'andrewins' on item 'EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM'

    I'm owning this lens for about 7 years and still thinking that it is the best lens for birds in flight. That is because of its push-pull zoom. You can find the bird in the air on 100 mm and change the focus lenght to 400 mm immediadely by pushing it forward. I tried 3 copies of this lens in...
  2. PowerShot SX720 HS

    Review by 'andrewins' on item 'PowerShot SX720 HS'

    Overal - very good compact superzoom camera for birding when you don't have your DSLR with yourself. Bought it to be able to have a camera everyday with myself to be able to make the proof shots of interesting birds that I met occasionally. I carry it in a pocket or in a waistbag while walking...
  3. SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

    Review by 'andrewins' on item 'SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2'

    I'm using this lens with Canon 60D for 3 years already. Had a big issue with the frontfocus at the beginning. Almost all the photos were out of focus. Brought it to Tamron service centre twice (one without 60D and one with 60D). They didn't fix the issue. I had to buy the Tamron tap in console...
  4. Celestron NATURE 10X25 MONOCULAR

    Review by 'andrewins' on item 'Celestron NATURE 10X25 MONOCULAR'

    Bought it new and had it only one day. After that I returned it back to the shop and bought Levenhuk Wise PLUS 10x42 Monocular. The problem was with very tight focus ring. I couldn't focus with the same hand with wich I hold it. It was very annoying. Even with two hands you need to use power to...
  5. Levenhuk Wise PLUS 10x42 Monocular

    Review by 'andrewins' on item 'Levenhuk Wise PLUS 10x42 Monocular'

    I have this monocular for about 4 years. Bought it new. Everything is fine with it. It is compact. The rubber gives good grip. The image is clear. Works fine in the temperatures below zero. The focus ring rolls smoothly. You can use this monocular with only one hand. The small negative thing is...

    I have a DSLR with number of lenses but I felt that I need a camera that I can carry with myself everyday in my pocket or in my waist back. It must be as compact as possible and must have the biggest zoom as possible. I need it to make pics of rare and interesting birds if I met them...
