Re: Need help from Birders!

I think you will get a variety of answers to this post as everyone will have their personal preferences.

I would concentrate on using the E-M1MkII as it is far better than the E-M1 for shooting action.

The Olympus Learn Center has a number of articles on bird photography here

There is one by Olympus Visionary Scott Bourne about BIFs here

My settings can be found here

Experiment with these settings to find what best works for you.

Then practice, practice, practice and PRACTICE.

Because no matter what camera/settings you have the most important factor is the user’s ability to follow the subject in the viewfinder and keep the focus points on it.

Good luck
