So the Tailed Jays are back in the garden. These days they have chosen another shrub to sleep on. This is one of the pictures I took a couple of weeks back. If you look at the red and black marking on the wing, it looks like the multi-colour print registration is a bit off :)
5D3, 100L macro, 1/200, f11, 400 ISO with flash.
Hope you like it :)

Lenses / Re: Budget lens for birding ?
« on: April 21, 2013, 01:53:12 AM »
I vote 100-400L. I have one since 2007. I have not had any dust problem with it. I used it with the 300D and now with the 5D3 and it works fine. I have used it to shoot the moon hand held at 400mm with a shutter speed of 160 and it came out sharp! So the IS works well in my experience.

Mick,
Great shot! Looks fantastic :)
Did you get out of the way in time ;D
Well, he posted the picture didn't he ;)

But seriously Mick, could you describe how you took the picture and lived to post it?

Well, this building is in PA steel country...but it is a coal-sifting plant. I am so fascinated with the place I spend whole weekends there!
Hmm... Allentown? I was in Bethlehem in 99 - twice... Stayed at the Hampton inn across 22. Liked the fall stay better than the Feb stay...

I drive thru Allentown and Bethlehem on the way to coal country...Frackville and Wilkes-Barre areas are a treasure- trove for shooting. I see photos everywhere I look.

One of the nicest Images I've seen on this site, very striking.
It is a very striking image. Kind of mystical aura about the subject. So many story possibilities.

Lenses / Re: which lens to keep
« on: April 20, 2013, 01:14:00 AM »
I m new to this, ok I have 24-105 f/4L IS and 24-70 f.2.8L, which one should I sell, I only could keep one lens and want to keep the best
Thanks for help
You need to state what kind of photography you do particularly what kind of light you shoot in. What camera you use.

However, you seem to be a beginner so I'd say either one is fine. Is the 24-70 the latest lens? If it is the 24-70L f2.8 II ,  I would keep it.

No I meant including it in a pic of yours as you had done before...


I know what you meant...I was busting your chops! :-*

:) So when is the next shoot? All that heavy machinery and factories reminds me of the steel plant that I grew up in.

The chimneys in the pic on the right are the SMS (Steel Melting Shop) chimneys. 100m tall.

Video & Movie / Re: 800 pictures in 4:02 minutes
« on: April 18, 2013, 01:18:26 PM »
Thank you for you positive comment rpt.
I shoot only raw, so... 12fps is quite enough, anything more than that will look more like video, and less like photo slide show.  ;)
Thanks for sharing.
You are making me want a 1DX :)
The 5D3 can only shoot so many raw frames at 6 fps :(
Of course I could cheat - shoot video at 24 fps convert to JPEG and drop every second frame and rebuild the video. That way even the music can be synced. ;)
Nah! Will not be even in the same solar system as your video :)

Likely considerably.  You also have to consider that it's possible the 2XIII may move your focus out of AFMA adjustment range.  I had that issue in a 1DX recently.  -20 was not enough.   Will it be the same on my 5DIII?  We'll see in May!  The capability is just that.  No one promised ideal capability.

AF at f8. YES! So in May I can have effective 140-560mm! :)
Wonder how much it will slow down the AF.
I guess I'll find out in two weeks :)
Btw, I have the 1.4xIII not the 2xIII... Hence the 100-400 goes to 140-560...
And if it goes beyond -20 (or +20) the camera, 100-400 and the 1.4xIII will need to go to canon for calibration. I hope not!

Excellent! So what was the fps you shot at? Did you shoot 14 fps JPEG?
