Re: Peregrine Falcon - In Flight

Brian and RG, thank you for the compliment.

Gary, I used "Lock-on AF:Expand Flexible Spot" for these images. I found that if the falcon was against a high contrast background, there was no problem in attaining focus lock. However, if the background changed to land where the contrast was lower, (falcon's brown against the colour of the land), the camera will lose the focus making the shot a little more difficult.

Overall, I am very pleased with the A77II. It's a good action camera and also great for stills, but the stills images will be in next week's thread.
