  • Fantastic picture Augustin....You must have very steady hands, a very good window cleaner and presumably the glass in your window was made by Leica!!!
  • Many thanks to Steve for starting this thread from a fellow newbie to RAW processing.  For my first attempts, I used NX-D only to convert RAW files from my P950 into TIFF files and then I played ...
  • Before buying my P950, I was hoping there would be an independent professional review to help me decide whether it was worth buying. I’m now so glad that I took a gamble and bought the camera ...
  • Fantastic shots Sherman...I’ll look out for one of these dot sights although on Amazon in the UK they are out of stock at the moment. Can they be used with the camera handheld as well or do you ...
  • Lovely pictures Cris...The weather in the UK has been bad for the last 3 days but is looking good for a trip out tomorrow.
  • Great pics Threed especially as you took them through a window and that’s a fantastic selection of birds you get at your feeder. I hope you enjoy the camera as much as I’m enjoying mine.
  • Hi Ev, Thank you for your reply.  When I first got my P950 a week ago, I tried a few shots using the bird setting preset and then tried your P900 settings with fine jpeg image selected (without ...
  • Lovely pictures Chris.  I originally thought the P950 was overpriced but having seen how it performs, I think it is well worth the cost.  Sadly my P950 is grounded for the weekend as we have yet ...
  • Excellent detective work Stephen and thanks very much for letting me know.  I think the WWT nature reserve at Arundel brings water birds in from around the world and also has other birds that ...
  • Replied in P950 Day 2
    Fantastic photos Mark....I just had a look at and followed you on your Flickr page.  I see you took some brilliant photos with your P900 so the sky is the limit for you now with all the extra ...
  • Many thanks Stephen...I think the duck in the first photo is a whistling duck and it was certainly whistling a lot...
  • Lovely photos....Please can I ask what your auto focus set up for the flying mallard was? I used spot focus for my Kestrel big shot because it was mainly hovering but I’m wondering which option you ...
  • Brilliant Photos Eskay….I have also found that you can get very nice results even in Dynamic Zoom but I don't think you can use it when you have RAW switched on.
  • Hi Ev, I’m really happy to see you responded to my post because I want to say a big thank you to you because the settings I have been using On the P950 came from a birding settings post you made ...
  • The light not very good at Arundel today compared to my trips to Pulborough earlier this week but here are a few photos from today. I took them all as RAW images and processed them through NX-D and ...
  • Relating to John's reply, I started off briefly using the lens hood supplied with the camera and a hoya filter but with that set up, I was struggling a bit with the focus. I'm fairly sure that I ...
  • Here is another RAW file link featuring the flying Kestrel....At this point it was right over my head and I was a bit worried that it might be planning to dive down and eat me or worse still, dive ...
  • Hi MMC12, I'm very happy to hear you found the sample shots useful and thank you for your kind words about the bird in flight capture. Thanks also to you for posting your conversion of the Blue Tit ...
  • I had my first attempt at processing a RAW file using the Blue Tit and trying to follow guidance Cris gave me earlier in this thread. I processed it using the Nikon folder and then edited it using ...
  • Lovely pictures Cris and I hope you enjoy your new camera as much as I am enjoying mine. Please excuse my lack of knowledge but what does sooc mean?
