The Birds of

Fraser's Hill,

Malaysia

The following photographs were taken during a short visit in February 2000 using a Casio QV8000 digital camera with 8x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom. Most of the time I had a 1.2x telephoto adapter attached but for some shots I used a 5x telephoto adapter. I only found later that this didn't focus below about 200 yards (metres). 2x digital zoom merely reduces the picture size (in pixels) so does not double the subject size but merely reduces memory requirements, so far more pictures can be taken. 4x digital zoom doubles subject size but reduces definition so is not worthwhile. Most pictures using this setting have been reduced again by half to improve them again.
