Terrific shots of some great birds David. I have never heard the name Tystie for the Black Guillemot before. Is it a Scottish thing?

All C**p photos. Very noisy even at ISO2000. Shutter speed of 1/2000 is not fast enough to catch the little blighter.....


TG-5 with ISO 2000 1/5000 Shutter speed


EM1 ii with 40-150+1.4TC ISO2000, 1/2000 shutter speed.

Better camera produces not significantly better photo....

I guess these little Bluetits have a very fast wing speed, and as they are taking off the speed is at a maximum.

Keep trying Johnny....

Tits and a Nuthatch at 1/5000. Certainly an improvement....but still wanna do better. Above ISO800, noise is not good. ????????????????

The Nuthatch is a cracking capture, what PP program do you have, if the noise in the background bothers you cant you do some selective NR.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Thanks for that. Lightroom6 is my poison..............

I am not too worried about the background here, as I was really just trying to get good feather detail etc.

Easier to move the bird feeder.........
