Niteclicks, atosk and erax7, those are nice also! Eastwind, good job on the enhanced photo.
How do I post an image? otherwise - here is my flickr image of comet panstarrs - taken with the canon 6D 200mm F4 ISO 6400 5s (normally would shoot 3s at this focal length) about one hour after sunset in Perth Western Australia http://www.flickr.com/photos/59977949@N04/8525459685/#
Not sure if I've ever shared this one with the group here. I also realize that it's not a hawk after educating myself. I shot this in northern New Jersey. Can anyone ID it?Is that a pigeon it's feasting on? That would help to size it. It's definitely a falcon, but I'm not sure it is quite big enough for a peregrine, plus I'm not familiar with North American distribution. The hood doesn't look as distinct as normal, but it could be a juvenile bird or it could be the angle.
edit: had trouble with the insert tool the first few times
Canon7D with f/2.8 300mm II + 2xTC, iso 400, 1/320 - 1/500 f/5.6
These are at the limits of resolution as the kingfisher was quite far away. I was hand holding the light combo with the 300mm + 2xTC. The kingfisher hovered with head dead still, dived and came up with his catch.
I really can't see them harming the camera. AFAIK, I don't think the hotshoe has changed much over the years. I've used my grandpa's old flashes, which I believe are also Sunpaks. Manual control on the flash
-1. As pointed out, some older flash units have high trigger voltages that can damage modern cameras. Sunpack makes/made flashes ranging from 6 V to >200 V.
