Re: BIF settings

Very good indeed!

Maybe we should start a thread about preferred settings for BIF?

With my GH3 and the 100-300mm things improved really a lot, compared to the GH2!

Still, i would like to know the settings used by other birders...

BIF's only: MF, lens wide open, 1/3200 - 1/4000 at ISO 200, not with the 100-300 though. Not sure on that lens. Maybe with that lens I would try 1/2500 - 1/3200 at ISO 200 - 400 on a fine day. Sun must be at your back for those to work. I don't shoot BIF's in any other way.
