    HI,

    I am an avid outdoorsman and while fishing or hunting I love to take pictures. I have seem more of a demand for me to have a camera that I can take close up pictures with at subjects over 50 to 100 yrds. Currently I try and take picture through my binoculars but that doesnt work great and it still isnt close enough!
    Can I do this with a camera under 400 dollars?

    Any suggestions on a specific camera? Not too big.

    Thanks,
    Vinny

    Did you link to the actual photo or to the yahoo page that displayed the photo? If you linked to the page it could have been on an ad.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    The type of picture you are after requires a lens far outside the normal amateur range. A 35mm body with one of the mirror lenses might be within your cost tolerance range.

    I have done some more research and am interested in the canon s3 or the panasonic fz30. do you think that would be wise choice?
