The doublers help about half of what you think they should. Picture quality suffers the futher you zoom out. The F-stop is also doubled so bright sun is the best time to film... I bought the best glass I could when I got one for my gl2 and I was pretty disappointed.... You need to stay in the optical zoom range to have any quality in the video... Let me know if you need help we could put the gl2 down on the Target just feet away....Dave

I recently bought a $199 Sony CRX220 HD camcorder at Walmart. It magnifies to 30X with amazing clarity at any price. I took a video of shooting a small rock at 1477 and it looks like its 100 yards away. I think you'd see the jug pop just fine with that camera, even at 1820 yds.

Re: Milk Jug at 1820 yards 338 edge

I use a JVC Everio camera for fimling ELR. It has 40x optical zoom, and a very nice 100x digital zoom. You can zoom 1000x digital, but the quality is very poor.
It cost me 300 usd here in Norway, I bet it is way cheaper in the US.

My worst struggle with this camera, is that when Auto focus is enabled, it reacts to mirage at high zoom, so the picture suddenly goes blurry. When I shift to manual focus, it is mch better, but it is very hard to see when the pic is very crisp in that small LCD screen. But filming hits a 2 km is no problem.

Here is a video I did, shooting my 338LM at 1953 meters, at a rock face. If there had been a milk jug up there, it would have been easy to see it.

I have also bough an adapter, so I can film through my spotting scope. I'll link a video of that in here too

The rock is more than 2500 meters away, and the mountain top is more than 3000 meters away.

I tried to upload my video for comparison, but kept getting a message about some "security token" missing...tried to report that to the administrator, and that message bounced back too....so I give up.
