Re: BIF with FZ1000

Very nice!  And it coped well with shooting the Red Tailed Hawk in full sunshine @ ISO 400!  Did you have any filter fitted since the FZ1000 does not include an ND filter?

Thanks for looking! I shoot straight out from the camera/lens without any filter. I used "S" mode as about 1/2000s,  center focus and spot mettering, liked I use for BIF shooting on others systems.

Wow!

I downloaded the large size, and it is quite impressive. YOu (and others) should be very pleased with that excellent FZ 1000.

EXIF won't lie, does it? I may hit a Fn3 button by accident while try to re-compose the focus with a back focus button.
