Look at the Moose Peterson series of bags from Mind Shift. I believe the largest one will hold an 800mm lens.
Thanks for all the replies. I will pass on the information.
A co-worker's 16 y/o has expressed an interest in photography. She wants to graduate from cellphone selfies! I'm thinking a small point and shoot with a moderate focal length range. Since I have no experience with them I am tossing it out to you knowledgeable folks for some ideas to pass on. This will be a Christmas gift. She didn't really have a price range in mind but if it were my kid I would probably stay in the $200-$300 price range in case it is a passing fancy.
Thanks in advance!
Linda, I was told some time ago it is a Pine Wrabler. Thank you for stopping by.
#2 is a Pine Warbler. #3 is an American Goldfinch.
If you are using Lightroom don't forget you need to do the move within Lightroom!
I'm treating myself to a 2 month road trip as a retirement gift early next year. Since I will be travelling by vehicle room for "stuff" isn't a big issue. Accomodations will be a combination of staying with family, motels and a bit of tenting. I'll be watching the advice given here for my planning!
Another outstanding video Mark!
I love my Cotton Carrier for birding. My usual birding set up is a Nikon D500 with a 300mm prime and 1.4x converter. I have not tried it with an 80-400 lens. Very comfortable to wear and it will keep your camera and lens secure and not swinging around as you hike.
I have a Mountainsmith Tour lumbar pack. I find it extremely comfortable to wear all day. It is quite roomy. I do find that if I use small zippered bags to organize my stuff inside it's more functional. I have a couple of zippered pencil cases I got from LL Bean that work well and are fairly rugged. Batteries in one, memory cards in another and any allen wrenches needed for tripods/heads, etc in another. Still room for my phone, snacks and whatnot in the pack. Water bottle(s) in the mesh pockets on the sides.
I think #3 is a Black crowned night heron. The beak doesn’t look long enough for a great blue heron.
They look like black-crowned night herons to me.
