Canon 500MM F/4 on a Wimberly
Mar 9, 2008


A Friend, Netgarden-Linda posted a question on my behalf regarding which lens to get. I opted for the 500MM F/4 and a Canon 1.4 Teleconverter, A Gitzo CF Tripod and a Wimberly Head based upon all of your input. Thanks for the help and advice.

I am now looking for any help or advice regarding shooting Brids in Flight with this lens mounted on a Wimberly. Up until now I was Hand Holding all my Birds in Flight using a Canon 100-400MM and doing quite well but now I am having a difficult transition moving to the 500MM and the Wimberly. Any advice, tutorial links, or suggestions would be highly appreciated.

I like the lens so far but need to work on my Technique. Target acquisition, Panning, and Focus are a challenge compared to how I was shooting.

Thanks Everybody,
