Animal Kingdom / Re: BIRD IN FLIGHT ONLY -- share your BIF photos here
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:50:56 PM »
600D + 100-400
400mm
f8
1/640
ISO 1000
Center AF Point

don't know if the lack of sharpness is duo to slow shutter speed or bad AF
Actually it is a very nice photo.
He is kind of flying towards you. That makes it rather difficult for the 600D AF. 1/640 should be ok but 1/1000 would have been better (although ISO goes up and ending up with more noise)

Thanks candyman, yeah this was one of 7 continuous shots, the 600D couldn't track as it gone from behind a tall weed to below the central focus point, and its the only one useable, if i can call it that :D , that's why i asked the question of which to get first 6D or 7D MK II, I don't think the 6D will be better than my 600D :(
For this type of photography I would recommend the 7D MKII. But you already know the 7D MKII is the right tool for that. Otherwise it is compromise. A combination of 6D and 7D MKII is about the price of a 5D MKIII.  Only in the upper league you will get one camera that can handle all type of photography very well.

A view of Scarborough South Bay and Oliver's Mount taken from the walls of Scarborough Castle, England. Scarborough is a very popular seaside resort in the north of England.

4DII + 24-105L @ 50mm, f8, 1/160. A five frame panoramic.


Great view and wonderful in panorama captured. The name Scarborough reminds me of Scarborough Fair (S&G)
New camera?  8)

Many thanks candyman. English Heritage have built a new stairway up to one of the ruined turrets on the walls of Scarborough Castle, so that enabled me to get the shot.

Yes 'Scarborough Fair' does refer to the annual fair that used to be held at Scarborough in the Middle Ages, when it was a 'Borough' of national importance, sited below the castle which dominated the area. Simon & Garfunkel made the traditional English ballad world famous.

4D - CR never saw that coming did they ;D

I've amended it !


 ;D ;D ;D ;D


btw I am sure you are going to show us this view in the blue hour. I bet it will look marvelous with the light on around the bay.

Saw it yesterday.
Looks good. But I guess the size and weight (6.3 pounds) is serious something to consider
I am looking for something beyond 300mm and with zoom.

I took the 1Dx to the speedway last night.


I don't often shoot sport in low light but the 1Dx held my hand and helped me.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon 6D discontinued?

Is this a mistake by Amazon UK?  Both body only and kit options are marked as discontinued. Will there be a surprise at the New York show?
2 to 2,5 years seems a very short lifecycle.
I guess it is a mistake  :-\

Also, any thoughts on SD cards? I'm eyeing up these Sandisk Extreme Plus cards. Not quite as fast as the Pro but they're a lot cheaper. Is the Sandisk Extreme Pro overkill? (Note - I have one 16Gb Extreme Pro I use with my EOS M - which probably is overkill!)

I use Lexar 32GB 600x (bought 2) and I am very happy with those.
