"A picture speaks 1000 words"
Canon FDn 400/4.5 on NEX-7
Nice action! You must have been able to get a nice shutter speed.
NEX-7 gave me 1/160 ( ISO200, AP mode, Canon 400 at F8.0, and a good beanbag rest )
One of those rare shots where everything just happened to fall into place at the same time.
And the look on the face of that Tufted Titmouse hanging on by a toe-nail is priceless.
Wow! With the way they are frozen in action, I would have thought it was much higher than 1/160. Nice work.
I usually use shutter priority when shooting birds, but you seem to be fine doing what you do so keep doing it.
If I recall correctly, using shutter priority with my Canon manual lenses I had to use Auto-ISO...and when I experimented with that last year, changing light conditions would too often force a higher ISO than I like due to the noise involved.
Whenever I can, my default is ISO100, but in moderate to low light levels with the 400mm lens I do bump up to ISO200, worst case ISO400...and I've also learned I can get away with some higher ISO noise if the subject / scene lends itself to shooting B&W instead.
That's what I call "capturing the moment"! Great work!
Thanks but I think a lot of luck was involved also
