High praise Jack and thank you. There is a Facebook-based photo contest right now whose theme is "Bird with Melted/Creamy Bokeh". The submission that wins will get their work printed for free on a large surface (I'm thinking 3 feet by 2 feet) and be displayed during a trade show for creative & print professionals.

I hope we are allowed to keep em. The print value is about $100-200

Exercise for anyone is a must. Wish I get to bird everyday as it gets me to do it for long periods of time without boredom setting in.

The 3 hour hike is 3 hours drive from where I live. Although a lot of birders have visited the place I have not.

Just testing the high ISO of the 5DS R on subjects that it was not marketed to handle. :)


Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla) by alabang, on Flickr

The Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla) (formerly considered as a subspecies of the tricoloured munia Lonchura malacca atricapilla), also known as black-headed munia, is a small passerine bird. This estrildid finch is a resident breeding bird in Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Hawaii.

Before 1995, it was the national bird of the Philippines,[2] where it is known as mayang pula ("red maya") because of its brick red patch on the lower back which is visible only when it flies. (This distinguishes it from other birds locally called maya, notably the predominantly brownish "mayang simbahan" (tree sparrow)[3] which is more common in urban areas.)

Yellow-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier) by alabang, on Flickr

The yellow-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier) is a member of the bulbul  family of passerine birds. It is resident breeder in southeast Asia  from southern Thailand and Cambodia south to Borneo and the Philippines.  It is found in a wide variety of open habitats, but not deep forest. It  is one of the most common birds in cultivated areas. They appear to be  nomadic, roaming from place to place regularly.

The yellow-vented bulbul builds a well-camouflaged but fragile, loose,  deep, cup-shaped nest from grass, leaves, roots, vine stems, and twigs.  The nest is untidy on the outside, but it is neatly lined with plant  fibers. It may be built in a wide range of places from low bushes to  high trees. This is a species adapted to humans and may even nest in  gardens. The yellow-vented bulbul lays 2–5 eggs in February to June.

The yellow-vented bulbuls eats berries and small fruits. They also sip nectar, nibble on young shoots, and take some insects.

Paolo, thanks for posting these 5Ds shots.  What's your personal opinion of the higher ISO shots?

I have the opportunity to step up to a 1DX used for about $600 above the 1D4.  Do you think it makes sense of just hold off for a later 1DX Mark II opportunity?

I think the ISO holds up well considering it is 50MP.

But if you need more than ISO 6,400 then this may not be the body for you.

For my uses the 1DX is a step back because it has less pixels per millimeter than the 1D4.

If you are printing your images then this is the body to get.

I'd wait for the 1DX2 if you do not have a critical need for a 1-Series body today but I expect pricing to exceed $6,800 when it gets shipped by 2016.

I expect the 1DX2 to be out by December or August 2016.

Thanks Dylan.

black-naped oriole (Oriolus chinensis) by alabang, on Flickr

The black-naped oriole (Oriolus chinensis) is a bird of the oriole family and is found in many parts of Asia. There are several distinctive populations within wide distribution range of the species and in the past the slender-billed oriole (Oriolus tenuirostris) was included as a subspecies. Unlike the golden oriole which only has a short and narrow eye-stripe, the black-naped oriole has the stripe broadening and joining at the back of the neck. Males and females are very similar although the wing lining of the female is more greenish. The bill is pink and is stouter than in the golden oriole.
