Feeling Cold

Always difficult to catch birds amidst the branches and end up with a picture.

And probably even more difficult to end up with very little chroma noise at ISO 2500/1600.

Any tips?

Re: Feeling Cold

Nice sharp shots Nick, was that with the 90-250 + EC20?
Considering ISO2500 was used very clean too, I've also found you can get good clean shots even at high ISO's with the E3.

Re: Feeling Cold

Ho - Hum.

Well the Marsh Tit (ISO 2500) was shot with +1ev to get a good strong exposure curve.



processed with DXO (letting it choose the settings). You can see it's beginning to lose detail

The Blue Tit was shot as normal

Re: Feeling Cold

Blue Tit stands out better from background but somehow I prefer the Marsh Tit. Seems that secret of high ISO on E3 is to give plenty of exposure and keep Histogram biased towards the right.

I do find the little marsh tit a most attractive bird, a bit dowdy maybe compared with its cousins but somehow making up for it in attitude.

As for higher iso and the e-3, well I think we are often our own worst enemies. Convinced that the camera will not shoot at 1600/2500 we hold the iso down and end up with long exposures/underexposed images, which are of course less than sharp and more noisy. A good exposure sways the signal to noise ratio in our favour.
