One of those with a Canon Powershot was Peter Van Scheepen, one of four keen Dutch birders we were with at Mitu. Peter has very kindly sent me all the images he took at Mitu and I've chosen two rather nice species to compare results with. The first, Spotted Puffbird, was for me one of the best birds we saw - just one on our first afternoon. It was a bit distant and my record shots with the DSLR were just that. I also digiscoped it through Nick's small Nikon (trying such was generally not that successful) and later (when it had unfortunately moved position a bit) through Peter's latest model Swarovski. Most images have been cropped and all have been sharpened to varying degrees using Olympus software.
