I use a Nikon L120 Cool Pix..

by .Circlewalker


The setting is on "landscape" and auto focus... so I don't have to try and focus out in the field. I do not try to look at the screen at all since it is too small is next to impossible to be able to distinguish one set of trees/leaves from another.

In order to just point and shoot certain strategies have to be used to maximize getting a successful hit if you are having trouble spotting them but know they are there.

One strategy i use is to "sweep" shoot an area with pictures in 180 degree arc. Each picture will be in a 30 degree interval which slightly overlaps. This gives me up to 3 pictures of any given area within the 180 degrees.

Here is an example:

First picture in sweep:

This may be all you get so you must look for shadow anomalies...second picture in sweep:

You may need to lighten up your screen settings to be able to see the detail... This is a blow up of the lower right of the picture
