Pray tell why you think this competition is lame? You calling it lame just becoz you dun have a scope? Have you ever tried digiscoping before? I have seen some top digiscopers works before, and they are stunning. It takes a LOT of skill and technique to get good pictures out of such a setup. I have nothing but loads of RESPECT for these people.

If you do not have any idea what I'm talking about, go and google up on Lawrence Poh.

very shallow remark :nono:
u live in your own world dude.

Very often, digiscoping is the only way to capture the wildlife images, especially birds from a comfortable distance while minimizing disturbance to habitat.
