Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

I have never been to a Falconry event and would like to. However, although I shoot with Olympus (and Panasonic) 4/3 and M4/3 and have for 40 years, I took the decision to use a Canon system for birds and have used that for a couple of years happily and see no real reason to change. So would I be allowed to bring that Canon for the flight shots? I'm not being difficult or trying to start any controversy. I run both systems and am purely interested in getting wildlife pictures and learning from the day, nothing else.

I knew you were trying to help people with the EM1 mark 2 and so have not asked before. But when it comes to getting enough people to make it work I am raising my interest and will attend if it is allowed.

I would try and shoot with both but as I use the EM5mk2 I would not choose to use that for flying birds but would do so on static set-ups.

I will understand if you say no. But I'm sure much of your teaching will be relevant to any system.

best wishes

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

Andy that works for me if you can work it out. Key now is to get as many as possible to commit so a date can be fixed soon. The further back this goes the worse weather we are likely to get. Maybe a poll added to the thread is the best way to get a decision. Not sure how to do that but maybe Ian could arrange it.

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

Peter for me I'd say yes no problem, you never know the EM5 might do better than you think. Definitely worth a try. You've been a pretty large contributor to this forum over the years it would be great to meet up.

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

I would love to come but I just don't think it's practical. The only date I would be able to make is Monday 9th., and I would need to scrounge a lift from somebody coming up from this way (Salisbury) - I think the last train to Wisbech was in 1968!

For what it's worth, I think 75 is a reasonable price to pay for the day given the amount of instruction and opportunities for photos. But it's easy for me to say that if I'm not coming

I really hope you can make a go of it.

John

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

Anne and I joined other members visiting Fen Falconry in 2014 - an extremely exciting and rewarding day.

Here is one from the day from my dpnow gallery.

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

I was close to asking the same question Paul. Just thought I'd follow Barr1e's lead and post a couple of images to see if it stirred up any more interest before posing the same question. I suspect John may well be proved right though. Hope not, still got my fingers crossed.
