Man! That photo of the flying eagle is awesome!

Can you post your settings? And in what mode do you shoot?

ZwemBroek,

they were all shot at 215mm=1200mm, the eagle shots were in continuos no AF mode 2.2fps

f6.5, tv mode, s=1/800, iso=auto 800, -3/2 exposure comp. , Fine large JPEG.The Eagles were flying about 100 yards from whre I was standing.

Thank you! I will try out the TV mode for myself using your settings and the ones Vision has posted before.

Have you tried Steve Ingraham's settings for birds in flight using the sports mode?

No I have not had a chance since it's been raining here for 3 days and expect snow tomorrow, I will find some cards in the snow to shoot sports mode to test the cam... Stay tuned :))
