Controlling High ISO on the R7 ... goodbye Golden Rule

You may already do this ... but for me moving from a DSLR to mirrorless was a new leaning exercise.

It is rather pleasant to use the R7 IBIS and lens IS combined for apertures down (up?) to f9 and in doing so avoid higher ISO rates for slow or still subjects (perched birds and landscapes)

For me gone are the days of the golden rule about using shutter speeds => than focal length.

I now confidently shoot 150-640 on a 500mm RF lens (800mm equivalent FOV) at ISO 1600 or less, with apertures of 7.1 to 9 and get fabulous results.

For landscapes I use apertures for good DOF so can be up to f11 at times on a wide angle lens .. or even up to 85mm.

Topas AI helps as well to get clean results when needed.

I use FV mode and limit auto ISO to 1600.

The combined IBIS and Canon RF lens IS must be a good 6 stops or more in the field even without a tripod.
