Re: Gigrin

Re: Camera / Lens range as in distance...

That is the best way to get round distance - have a good sized flock of birds. One on its own cropped would not look much. Think you've got a couple of Dunlin in there too.

Re: Panasonic launch the G9 and 200mm f2.8 lens

It looks like it would probably fit, but the extra converter contacts are in a different position from the Olympus ones so the camera would probably not know it was fitted and so would not adjust...

Re: To protest or not to protest - that is the dilemma

Re: Larva of Elephant Hawk-moth [i]Deilephila porcellus[/i]

Great shots Harold. I found two in our garden yesterday when I pulled some weeds out. I hadn't seen them, I just felt the texture wasn't a plant! They are 3 inch long monsters!

Re: AF not as accurate

I think you will have to do a focus test with your 50-200 and EC-14 and probably calibrate your AF. If you don't have any specific test gear, then just set the camera up on a tripod and and put 3...

Re: What card for second slot?

Not quite. If you shoot Raw to Slot 1 and JPG to Slot 2 then the writing speed will be governed by the slower slot.

If you have 2 cards but write Raw and JPG to a UHS II card in slot 1 then...

Re: First BIF photos with EM1 MK 2

That's a great start, but for BIF I would recommend you try to use faster speeds. Three of them were taken at 1/500 sec. I would suggest you use a higher ISO than 200 and keep the lens at F4 and get...

Willow Warblers also migrate.

A few Chiffchaffs stay here over winter, but most sensible ones head south.
