Animals and birds (pics)
Jun 29, 2011

I've been experimenting with hand held shots with 500mm VR and it's not bad at all. I've got sharp images even at 1/60 sec But the subject movement can be a problem. So now I set the minimum shutter speed to 1/125 with max ISO 800 in ISO auto settings

Comments welcome

These are hand held shots

White-tailed deer and fawn - hand held @500mm 1/80 sec f/4 ISO 400

Skunk - Hand held @500mm, 1/125sec f/4 ISO 640

Chipmunk - Hand held @500mm 1/200 sec f/4 ISO 200

Raccoon - Hand held @500mm 1/60sec f/4 ISO 800

Eastern bluebird - Hand held @850mm (TC-17) 1/800sec f/7.1 ISO 500

These are on tripod
