Re: Seeking ways of tracking birds in flight with 500mm lens

I have taken a ton of BIF with this combo, and always find handheld is the way to go! Its way easier and natural to track the bird..

I have tried a monopod with gimbal and it seems to only work for launch shots but after that I lose the bird..

Good luck and I look forward to your photos..

Cheers Travis
