hello friends, it is been long time i posted my
last photo, the last time i was dreaming to a new
camera the new Panasonic FZ100 that can shoot
at 11 image per second in full resolution, but when
i start to view photos from that new camera i was
very disappointed (images of ISO 400 and higher)
and 2 - 3 weeks ago i stopped dreaming it

at his place i started to dream a expert compact
with larger (compact camera) sensor like the
Panasonic LX5, Canon S95, the coming Canon G12
and i also knewed Nikon Coolpix P7000 was to come

well today Nikon launched the new Coolpix P7000,
today we are the 8 september and the 8 september
in 2008 i was shooting this Eastern Cottontail Rabbit
photo with my small point & shoot Nikon Coolpix P60

the Nikon Coolpix P60 has a small compact camera
sensor but i am very satisfied with the image quality
and the focusing speed for his category of camera,
with that small point & shoot i also did bird in-flight shots

being satisfied with the small Coolpix P60 i am sure
the expert Coolpix P7000 would give me better images
it is the reason why today i decide it will be my next
camera and friends i am no more changing my mind
and because i want also to continue with Nikon

only one thing i am not loving from the new
Nikon Coolpix P7000 it is his burst mode
that it is around only 1 image per second,
but with my actual Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd
i already shoot only one photo at the time

and it is more rewarding having a spectacular
photo shot with only one shot than with a burst
mode of 5 - 7 or 10 images per second

i already have 2 shots of my dogs flying over the water
and they where shot with only one shot, no burst mode

they are the 2 photos that i will post in the WS

Celtick flying over water

Ranger flying over water

here is a link on the new camera that i am dreaming
and hope will start to shoot with it in october
the new Nikon Coolpix P7000

i also invite you to view these photos
shot by a pro photographer for Nikon

Hi neighbor....or bonjour:-) I like the colour saturation of your new camera. Just as an aside...did you happen to buy Paintshop Pro?

Cute rabbit. They tend to run from me so your VERY lucky here.

Hello Asbed,
As I am getting old it won't be long before I can no longer carry my heavy equipment and I am pleased to see that the development of compact cameras is progressing. This should mean that a camera weighing a tenth of my equipment should be able to do the same job with the same technical standard.
This is probably what you are waiting for and it should happen soon!
In the meantime this is a nice one from your archives, the rabbit being taken in a fine pose against the natural green BG and set in an excellent composition.
We'll keep our fingers crossed !

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely creature, fantastic light, beautiful natural ambientation, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Asbed,
a very good picture of the Rabbit from your archives with your older Coolpix P60, great timing in a very nice composition ... waiting your new shots with the new Nikon Coolpix P7000.
Best regards

A great view of this cute rabbit in a nice pose. Great focus and a fine natural background. The strong light adds a bit of magic!

Salut Asbed
Jolie composition et bon pdv.Le detail est excellent et l'image est bien en focus.Parcontre je trouve que le vert est un peux trop saturé mais de l'autre cioté il y a une effet magique qui est crée.
Merci Michel quand penses tu faire ta nouvelle acquisition ?

bonjour Asbed
j'espère que bientôt tu trouveras ton bonheur avec l'appareil de ton choix, en attendant tes photos d'archives nous font très plaisir, ce lapin est adorable et très bien présenté, avec de superbes details et couleurs
merci et bonne nuit

Hello Asbed.. Nice catch.. Very good pose and very clear details..TFS. Bravo...

Bonjour Asbed,

La végétation cadre bien le lapin. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du lapin qui semble observer les environs. La qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Impressive image taken from short distance as far as my senses suggest Asbed! Great point of view and dramatic framing! I love the presence of the bright sun and your enthusiastic notes too! Go for the new P7000! I just recently both the G11! Very, very impressive little camera! If you wanna see some of my images taken with it please go to TrekLens! Have a lovely time shooting!

hello Asbed
This beautiful picture, very nice effect light and natural colors.
hello Vanni

Interesante toma Asbed. No se en Canadá, pero tengo entendido
que en EE UU no son utilizados estos animales para la alimentación humana, sino simplemente como mascotas... ya me dirás :-)

Hi Asbed. This is an incredible photo of a cute rabbit. Excellent shapness and good light.. I liked it.. TFS.
Best Regards

Nice shot of this rabbit Asbed. I like the way you captured the sun. It looks like the rabbit could just jump right through it. LOL You have just the right amount of foreground to the picture and it's framed perfectly. Well done! Trevor

What a beauty, Asbed!
Very sharp and beautifully framed!

Hello Asbed,
Nice shot of this cute little bunny captured in a wonderful low POV. He looks exactly like our Eastern Cottontails here in Ohio. I love the WS photos of your beautiful dogs Celtic and Ranger too.
I also checked out the photos taken with the Nikon Coolpix P7000 and must say they are very impressive.

Hi Asbed!
Very beautiful picture of this nice and cute rabbit.. I love the sun light through the plants. Excellent details of the rabbit and the grass. Very well composed.
Ciao! Vanda
P.S...Oh Asbed..I am sorry about the Lumix FZ100...I was thinking to buy it...Now I don't know how to do :))

Hi Asbed,

This rabbit is wondering if you have really made up your mind this time. It's so nice to see one on thick green grass instead of on gravel or dirt! I love the shots of Celtick and Ranger - beautiful dogs and wonderful action shots. Looking forward to seeing pictures from your new Nikon next month!


This fellow was waiting just for you... GREAT EYE CONTACT!!!
Lovely B/G.

Very nice ranger friend... something a bit different lately than your great looking "in flight" captures but no less well done!

Hello Asbed,
lovely view of this cute rabbit at a real low angle capture.
Very sharp and very clear shot that depict the beauty of the environment too.
Very rich colours and exciting pose from the rabbit too.


Hi Asbed,
very nice photo of the rabbit. Also I like this show of light. It looks like this rabbit are going towards this light.
Thanks for sharing,
