Poor man's 800mm
Jun 2, 2010

The following image was taken at 800mm. However, it's a poor man's 800mm Taken with the Canon 400 5.6L and Canon TC 2x and using Liveview to focus. The image is about 85% of full-frame. I even tried some shots with both a TC 2x and a TC 1.4x together and it works fine using Liveview.

I don't need 800mm to photograph adult pied-billed grebes. It's the tiny baby grebes who are well, quite pint sized. Every millimeter of focal length helps and thus my makeshift 800mm. Liveview was used to focus on the little one.
