Point and Shoot Camera

Got a point and shoot camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC FX70K with a 60 X optical zoom which is 20mm to 1200mm. This is light weight and easy to carry on trips. But, need monopod or tripod for the extreme zoom. Also, need good light conditions for decent shots. The camera is 16 Megapixels and shoots RAW and has an electronic viewfinder, which I thought was essential. Now, I can shoot birds and other wildlife without getting too close to them. It will take some time to get used to all the features. Noise is an issue, even at ISO 320-400. The aperture priority mode is tricky as the shots are coming out overexposed and shutter times were slow. Maybe, I should have used shutter priority mode. The first few shots at 1200 mm zoom are below.
