Re: Birds - a productive week
In reply to Ed at Ridersite, Sep 2, 2013

Thanks Ed. The Thrushes start now to sing - normally during about an hour before sunrise. Also over the day but less so.

On the A99 I found a level of high ISO performance (well not that high yet) which satisfies my needs entirely. In the past it was sometimes a difficult balance of choosing a not too high ISO for noise reasons but at the risc of having the exposure times a tad too slow for both handshake and subject move reasons. Most of the bird and nature shots taken over the last months were in cropped RAW mode which I discovered for me as extremely util: excellent quality, relatively small files, better coverage / better spread of the AF points/zones than in FF mode.
