At yesterday was my first hide camp night. It was nice start, after 2.5 hours waiting,_ become first bear. I seen totally 4 bears, 1 see eagle, 1 black kite(?) (Milvus migrans) and lots of ravens.
Hide camp was in border zone between Finland and Russia.
sounds like fun...what lens are you using?
I used 5d2 + 70-200 2.8L with and without extenders. With 1.4x it was little bit short and with 2x it was too dark.
This picture is shot at 5d2+70-200+1.4x
F5, 1/125, ISO 2500
There was really dark and last shot was taken at F2.8, 1/10, ISO 25600 and manual focusing.
