  • My conclusion is that the OP is a troll. A troll that has no interest whatsoever regards peoples' opinions as to the worth of an Adobe subscription he/she asked for in their original post Subsequen ...
  • Are you still getting 'cloudy' images? Any more examples?
  • Now you come to mention it, I can't see any evidence of camera shake either. Dunno!
  • No. Bird is too far away for good image quality is all I can think of, which of course isn't an error. I do it all the time but don't normally keep the images unless it's a record shot of a rare ...
  • Pity about the Leica colours. Completely over the top for wildlife IMHO. I always try for a natural look with bird images. Here's my attempt from the raw file. I blurred the background more and got ...
  • Image taken at f/4 which is wide open at the long end.
  • Excuse my ignorance, I've never heard of that lesser-used method. It works with the first image quite well as the bird has just taken off and there is evidence of that. Not sure about the other ...
  • According to Wikipedia 16:9 became the standard in 2009 for TVs and PC monitors so you are right. Perhaps nobody had told the OP?
  • Nice effect but I think the images would look better if there was more space in front of the bird. You seem to have it the other way round. Maybe you did it that way for the first one to get the ...
  • That wasn't the case 11 years ago when the thread was started!
  • I know, I know! It's all good. Despite my change to APS-C for birding. I'll definitely keep my eye open for the enigmatic (if that's the right word) M5.
  • I agree with all you say. But in this instance, I have now noticed that the background is still quite noisy. So I've taken the liberty to put your first image through Topaz Denoise AI Clear on ...
  • Nothing wrong with your eyesight or screen David. I can perceive no difference whatsoever and what's more a touch more sharpening wouldn't go amiss. Very strange. Edit Sorry, the above comments are ...
  • An outstanding set of images. You certainly have an eye for what makes a good photo.
  • I stand by my quantum leap comment that's why I made a point of saying 'my particular copy'. I've gone from a 10% to 80% keeper rate for BIF with the change to the A6600. Not that I'm truly happy ...
  • No, the RX10iv never got the latest Sony AF system (real-time tracking) with that update. As far as I can remember it just added animal eye AF (useless for birds) and time-lapse. But yes I suspect ...
  • I agree. I've suspected there was something not quite right with my RX10iv for some time. But what to do? Pay for an expensive repair that may or may not make it all that better? Wait for the ...
  • I'll just say this. The AF system of the A6600 in AF-C with the 70-350 lens is a quantum leap better than that of my particular copy of the RX10iv. The joy of using a manual zoom is also a massive ...
  • Actually, this is not true. Specifically for birding, I've replaced my RX10iv with an A6600 + Sony E 70-350 G lens. This lens is far from humongous. This combo is only 32grams heavier than the ...
  • Nice shot. Where is the ugly watermark? All I see is a telegraph wire.
