Re: G9 EVF settings for small birds in the trees

Robert, I'm not gonna question your choice of systems and tell you "get a Nikon" because my health situation also dictates my choice of equipment (and other things). I think a lot of people just don't get that.

I feel your pain with the G9 auto focusing and birds. Finding a bird to focus on in clutter is a challenge for all auto focusing systems esp. this one.  I have found that the face /animal /bird setting does actually he help read the scene and pick out the bird. It does have its quirks, like not always focusing on the eye. You can move the focus box around with the joystick once the Bird is acquired. worth a shot I'd say

Good luck
