Shoot a lot, shoot at everything. That is a heck of a zoom??

I used a much older Canon PowerShot (SD1000) up until I got my first SLR in 2012. Some of my older shots with that camera are on rp.

Just for the heck of it I resized that one to 1600 x 1200. Still a good-looking result! :-)
Many web images can't stand any enlargement, such as for a desktop wallpaper.

I started with a canon megazom S3IS in 2006, so I would expect your body to be more than capable enough to capture sunny day compositions without issue.

These days, almost any new digital camera (DSLR, Mirrorless or P&S) should get nice results in decent lighting conditions. Sensors have improved tremendously in the last 10 years. I remember my first DSLR, a Nikon D40x. Anything above ISO 400 looked really poor at 100%. The D90 was good to 800 and the D7000 was good to about 2,500.

Here in New England, I think the hunters use the same strategy. :shock:

I used the D90 for several years, OK I guess but was disappointed overall maybe too high expectations, which led me to D700 full frame and eventually D750 and no more letdowns.
