I agree......put the camera close to the birds. OK for garden birds! My photography is mainly in marshes/estuaries and sand flats. Long distances (25-100m) .......with my compact/scope set up I am working with a focal length of 2-3000mm. The attachement was just checking out this system.

Hej,
It's okej, then, if it was for testing... Did you try and shoot the moon with such setup ? You should get something nice at 2-3000mm.
And thanks barret.

Hej,
Well I have played a bit with motion detection (the one for A640 by Johan van Barel) (so I'm confirming it works on A540)...

A590is (1.01b) works well too.


I haven't tried anything with fast motion at this time, but this is far more enjoyable than I expected.
Nice shots, BTW, yvesson!

Hej,
Thanks, nice shot too, I don't have this kinda bird here. How did you make it come where your cam was ? Is it just a place where it's often seen, as my flycatchers and redstarts ?

Motion detection video works too, btw (fudgey's script) :

Sorry I have removed all my videos from youtube, since they wanted to force me creating a google account just to have access to my videos again. Reuploaded on dailymotion.

It is a common bird here, but I did cheat a little.
I wedged a few peanuts and sunflower seeds into the bark, actually trying to lure a red-headed one instead of the one I got.
I could try crickets, too, but I don't know if I want to go there. :)
I checked out www.allaboutbirds.org for tips on luring different types of birds- not a bad site.

Hi. First post here. I have a SX110 and earlier this week I downloaded CHDK and a motion script. I have a bird feeder outside the kitchen window, so I set up the camera on a tripod just 3 feet away from the feeder and started the motion script. Every few hours I'd change batteries on the camera and twice a day I took out the 4GB chip to move images onto my computer. Over the course of 2 days I took almost 4,000 images. Most of them have no birds, because the wind makes the feeder swing. Nevertheless, I was very pleased with the results. I cropped the images and adjusted contrast and brightness using Photoshop.
