These were shot through a 15X optical lens at quite a distance. Im sure the reason they came out was I was using an Olympus computer image stabilizer.

I was delighted how they turned out

They do look very nice. I never get photos like that. I don't know what an image stabilizer is but what ever it is, it works based on the photos you shared. looks really good.

I don't know that the quality of a camera makes that big of a difference for people like me who shoot on automatic settings. I got much better photos when using a Kodak Easy Share digital camera than I do when using the Canon Power Shot I currently use which is about 4x the price of that Kodak. I also took much better photos using that cheap Kodak than I did when borrowing people's Nikons. The computer image stabilizer Green Man mentioned above sounds interesting. That's got to be in his photo editing software. I don't have that feature in any of my photo editing software. Don't know that I'd be able to figure out how to use it even if I had it though.

I have used Olympus cameras for a long time. I tried cannon but could not get used to it. The camera I use is an SP-550UZ. Its an older digital camera, maybe 3 years. you could most likely find a closeout on one for a couple hundred. They have newer models in the same line. I think the olympus takes stunning outdoor photos, indoors takes some talent. The image stabilizer uses a computer in the camera to eliminate some of the blur caused by slight hand movements.

In order to keep as much sharpness to the photo only use a good optical zoom, a digital zoom does not offer the same clarity.
