    I finally fulfilled a dream that my dad imparted to me 43 years ago, when I was 5 years old: I went on my first African Safari!

    I hunted with Limcroma Safaris and had the time of my life! The hunting, staff, food and lodging were simply top notch! I am already planning my return.

    Please check out my YouTube videos of my hunts! My channel is 64bowhuntr.

    Here is the link to one of the 7 videos I have there:

    Believe it or not, it was just a new Sony Cybershot. The new models now have an 18:1 optical zoom that works in video mode. It takes great pics and great videos alike...at a very reasonable price!

    Sweet! It's amazing how well a budget priced camera works. My son, who is big into photography is researching a new camera for me. So far he has a Canon as well as a couple others tagged for me. Thanks.

    And I used a Mac in IMovie for the effects. I am really new to that, but it worked great.

    That is exactly what I used. It had just come out the week I bought it, in July. I love it for both stills and for the video capability and optical zoom in video mode.
