Birds in flight at the Park.
In reply to kkardster, Jan 17, 2013

I am having no luck with the Burst mode. I end up frustrated when ever I use it. I used shutter speeds over 1/1000 for the first time on this camera. Seems impossible to focus on the birds in flight. I also experimented with the different auto focus settings.

Here are some pictures I shot at a different park Yesterday.

Every 5 or 10 minutes this group takes off together, makes a circle and comes back

Found it tough to get a clear sharp focus on the image below. Any advice on how I could focus quickly?

The image below was shot in burst mode. It is quite a challenge to follow the flyers with the camera at max zoom.

Here are some other pictures shot at the park.

1 meter away from the pigeon

Best regards,
