Low Tech Redneck

The pictures below, of two Canada geese, were taken with my Sony 12.1 Mega Pixel Cybershot from about 200 yards away. Now before you go thinking that I have some crazy high power zoom on this little hand held camera, let me assure you I do not. While lazily watching the day slip by, during an uneventful morning of turkey hunting, I decided to try this little trick I had read about. It involves looking through a set of binoculars (Nikon Monarch ATB 8x42) with your camera (basically the low tech redneck's telephoto lens). The end product, while a little blurry, is still very cool! The system could be vastly improved with the use of a tripod (to hold the binoculars and camera steady) and a set of rubber bands to keep the camera in position. Once the camera is steadied and secured it is a simple matter to look through the camera viewfinder or other binocular lens and taking your pictures. I look forward to trying out this system throughout this hunting season and will certainly post the results!
