Hi guys! I'm going on a work trip to Trinidad in the new year. I'm going to take my full rig for when I can actually go birding, but it won't be safe to have it on the work site. It's a bit sketchy there. There are going to be birds EVERYWHERE though, so I am wanting a camera that is small enough to be in a pouch on my belt, but that has the most reach. Mostly for ID, but hopefully that can give me decent quality. Any suggestions?
Ya, a bridge camera was too large to have in my pocket. I needed something super small as I work in theme construction and can't have anything obtrusive on me. I ended up with a Canon SX730 HS with a 40x optical zoom (due to it being on sale!) and was thoroughly impressed with it on the trip. I could zoom in from VERY (and I mean VERY) far away with a very decent ability to id the birds. Eye stripes, bill and feet colour etc. It was fantastic!
