  • Birds In Flight Photography

    EM1X only

    I have been having reasonable success with my bird in flight shot's with AF-C. But have just read the following by Thomas Stirr in regards to using Aeroplane AI tracking (AF-c +tr), he reckons he had the most sucess using it.
    Think i will give it a try soon see link below

          BIF photography is about 80% technique. No whizz-bang toy can make up for that. I've taken BIF photos with my old E-510 and non-SWD 50-200. I've taken BIF photos with my EM1 Mk I. And, obviously, with my EM1 Mk II. Each generation of camera makes the job easier but it doesn't replace good technique.I think the benefit of AI will be where the bird is against a busy background.
          Best wishes
