Re: Panasonic 100-400

Hi Ross,

I guess you already have the 40-150/F2.8? And also the MC14?

If that is the case then if I were you I would go for the 300/F4, although it is more expensive. My reasoning:

Re: Hummingbirds

Hi Mark,

Tough call. It depends a bit on what kind of vegetation and flowers they will be hovering around... trade-off between maximizing the detail and risk of clipping the subject when shooting...

Re: Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds are easy in the sense they can be approached at fairly close distance and gardens will attract them given the owner has planted the right species and the season is right with...

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

The highly respected Zuiko 350 F/2.8 was/is white. One of the photos displays the new lens alongside with the Pana 100-400.

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

A tester claims he has had his/her hands on (what I guess is a prototype) of the rumoured 150-400 and that it is a constant F/4. He also guesses the lens will be on the market late 2019, together...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

To be honest: the background is OK but the subject looks out of focus to me and is flying away.

Re: Eat and Reflect

Nice, beautiful colors. Like the detailed pattern in the rufous feathers and the look in the eye.

Re: Bee-eaters

Thanks for the nice feedback. Took quite some preparations to find the right spots close enough to the colonies. Used portable hide and camo net. And yes it's an admiral.

Re: A Question about Image Stabilization

Ron,

The two first photos look good to me. The third looks a tad OOF and the last one seems it has some motion blur. But again, looking promising.

I went out this morning in search of raptors...

Re: A Question about Image Stabilization

Hi Ron,

You are indeed correct. The IS switch on the lens overrides the menu setting.

I sometimes find myself having accidentally turned it off from time to time. I keep mine on all of the...

Re: Any good tutorials for BIF settings?

Ron,

What you could add or modify is the following:
Slowest shutter speed when Auto-ISO (Menu E1-->ISO Auto Set-->[Lowest S/S Setting] = 1/1600s (or even shorter depending on subject, distance...

Re: Any good tutorials for BIF settings?

Thanks Ron,

Dave also added some useful hints, we seem to have same opionion except when it comes to the C-AF lock, but it may have to do with what background we usually shoot against. I try to...

Re: Flying birds

I have to disagree on that the 300 F/4 is not suitable for BIF.

Re: Any good tutorials for BIF settings?

Hi Ron,

These are the settings that I use.


C-AF (not C-AF Tracking)
Mechanical shutter to avoid rolling shutter issues
L-FPS cranked up to max (10 fps I think it is)
Do not use H-FPS...

Re: IS errors?

Hi,

Just came across this thread.

Re: Any one do birds in flight with the EM1MK1

Well you can do BIF with the E-M1 Mark 1 and achieve good results however the lack of cross-AF points means it may have difficulties acquiring the subject and keeping it in focus. If the subject is...

All good, focus seems spot on. The setting and posture in the second one makes it stand out. You seem to be doing well with your new setup.
