What equipments to photo rabbits?
Hi, everyone! Wild little rabbits are begun to fascinate my mind and I would like to take high quality pictures of them. My current camera is Canon PowerShot A620 and I know that ISO-sensitivity of it isn't capable for that kind of job. Lens should be longer too. Then I have Nikon F55, but haven't used it years....

I've read tens of DSLR reviews and a lot of discussion here and other sites on the Internet considering new equipments. But what is really essential considering my goal? Have I to spend thousands of euros to get high quality pictures? If it's so, then I have to, but 4000 euro is absolute limit for all needed equipments (including one real wide lens for my travel pictures)..

What suggestions you have to give for a novice?..

This was taken from 20ft away, 300mm lens, with 1.4 converter (420mm total focal length) with a Canon D60. A Canon DSLR can be had for well under a thousand US dollars, the 300mm image stabilized lens was about $1000 and the converter about $300. There are less expensive alternatives. So you can definitely do what you want within your budget..

Thank you for answering. That's very nice picture. I'm just wondering, that is that long lenses must? I thought that 80-200 mm f/2 or 2.8 would be enough...

If you plan on taking pictures during the day, like the one above, I'd suggest a Panasonic FZ50. It has long zoom, IS, fast lens and easy to use manual focus..

Otherwise (in lower light conditions), any entry DSLR with a long lens will give you nice results for viewing pictures on your computer. I'd get one with IS though, or an IS lens. If you want to print, and print big, then it's another story...

Thank you too, for answering. FZ50 seems interesting, but there is not real wide angle what I want for sceneries. If I will get really interesting pictures, I would like to publish a book of them and maybe print them into wall too...

If you are after wild rabbits, you will need all the length you can get. You are trying to photograph very small creatures. If you want to fill the frame, long lenses will be necessary..

Unless, you are a very fast runner..

200mm is too short for wildlife that small..

If that is your goal then you'd better get a DSLR and the best lenses you can afford..

And be prepared to spend a lot of time in the wild waiting for your subjects, studying and stalking them. You're not going to get a book published of bunnies in your back yard. At least not one where you get paid for it...
