Really like #3 heck getting a moving subject in focus with these cameras is impressive on its own.

Thank you kind sir! I liked that one, too.

What I’ve been doing to try to capture fast moving subjects (and the dogs are that for sure!) is to bump up the ISO. For some reason beyond my limited understanding, the EXIF info doesn’t appear for those photos. I looked it up.  #3 was shot at 1/500 (to stop motion) and f22 (to have a very broad DOF to help make up for the Fuji’s slow focus). To get to those settings, even outdoors, I had to use ISO 3200 – something I would not normally do with any camera other than the little Fuji.

I guess the Camera Gods giveth and taketh away in that Fuji has slow focus, but you can compensate for that to some degree by using Fuji’s mostly noise-free higher ISO settings.

Well Done Birdogman. Those action shots are very good. You have captured the essence of birddogs so well. I have not been afield this year due to a bad back. Ironically I usually hunt with my Chiropractor & his three Brittany's. It is as much or more fun to observe the dogs working than it is to shoot at the birds. They really are amazing critters.

Thanks!  Too bad you haven't been able to get out.  Remember that you never get that lost time back.

You are so right about that dogs.  They are the reason I call myself "Birddogman" instead of "Bird Hunter" or some such

Shot these today in Tampa Bay on Anna Maria Island. Both were straight out of the camera jpegs shot in Provia film simulation mode with 55-200mm lens. I did an auto contrast in PS but that's it. The first is a Snowy Egret and the second is a Great Blue Heron.

Thanks Rolf! Also especially for being the rare comment in this thread.

Thank you to those who gave the thumbs-up too

Rolf, I had a pretty good look through some of your work and think it's very impressive. Love quite a number of your gems...and they cut across different subjects and styles too.
