[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
With Digiscoping you can shoot close-up pictures much easier without interruption. This technique uses a telescope combined with a digital camera. I use Nikon Coolpix 5000 Camera in combination with a Swarovski ATS 80 HD telescope. It is a fine contribution to the traditional way of photographing.

Mais il est infatigable le Professeur Didier ;-) Le résultat digiscopique est effectivement excellent. Quel beau et bon cliché ! Compliments sincères.

PS : quelle distance et quel grossissement ?

Now that's a red red robin! To me it looks as though you've actually just missed the point of focus, focussing on the wing rather then the critical eye area, which appears just a little soft.

Beautiful photo Didier, a little more DOF wouldn't have hurt (the face is just a little soft) but it's still very nice. I really like to overall colors and composition. TFS!

Real beauty Didier! Very cute little bird, full of warm colours. I like composition with green leaves. Good idea to use telescope. I tried few times digicams + binoculars, but images were very dark and distorted.

Very sharp and detailed shot. As usual with extreme telephoto, the DOF is rather shallow, so not everything is perfectly in focus. I think there is a slight reddish color cast - perhaps this was taken in the evening? On he other hand, this is really a red robin!!

Hi Didier,
Excellent capture!
Very sharp and detailed, beautiful colour.
Well done!

Hi Didier,
Beautiful colors, and excellent composition. As good as the detail is, I agree that it could use just alittle more DOF. I would imagine that you can shoot from really great distances with that setup.

Didier, very good shot. Great POV and very good details. Good visual impact. TFS.

It's a great picture for a digiscoping, Didier.

You did a good job.

Hello Dider

Very cute Robin. Lovely rich colours. Good POV and vey nice presentation. TFS.

Magnifique ce petit rouge gorge, avec des couleurs chaudes.
J'aime beaucoup.

Superb shot Didier!
You are, no doubt one of the best photographers I have pleasure to know.
This shot has amazing quality and colours, but most of all I like POV.
You did a great job on it!

Interesting technique Didier. Excellent colors and pose. This FG & BG add good interest also. Thank You.

Didier, great to know about this Digiscoping. Thanks a lot for the information.

The shot is an excellent one.

Great pov, composition, sharpness and vivid colors. Lovely pose and catchlight in the eye.


Les couleurs ici sont tres belles et agreable a regarder.
Un petit F8 aurait peut etre permis d'avoir la tete aussi dans le focus mais je sait tres bien que la critique est aisée mais l'art est difficile donc je dit bravo.
J'aurais par contre a titre d'info savoir la longueur focal car je pense que l'approche n'as pas dut etre facile.
A bientot Didier ;-)
