PGH423's recent activity

  • Your post made me pay more attention to my technique. I didn't realize I always let my elbows flap out to the side rather than tucking them in! I've generally been trying to stay at 1/200 sec or ...
  • Thanks. Those more recent photos are exceptions though. With male cardinals, more so than any other bird, I find that this camera almost always misses the focus. I may be expecting too much ...
  • Thanks for all the feedback. I reviewed all of my best shots (link) with this camera. I think that usually when I am fully zoomed in and satisfied with the results, a shutter speed of 1/200 sec or ...
  • I see what you're saying. Here are the originals.
  • I thought it would post the EXIF info. Both shots were with my Canon SX 70. Picture 1: 247 mm, f 6.5, 1/160 Picture 2: 247 mm, f 6.5, 1/125 I guess those are slow shutter speeds but the birds did ...
  • Created discussion thread Cardinal Soft Focus
    I struggle to get tack sharp male cardinal pictures. Can you tell what the issue is in these pictures? I'm not sure if it was too slow a shutter speed, or missed focus (on tree branches?), or ...
  • Thanks. I am thinking about upgrading from the XS to the 12 Pro. One more question: if you edit the raw (DNG) file in a 3rd party program like Lightroom, does it maintain all the computational ...
  • Is it possible to shoot RAW plus JPEG (or at least, RAW plus HEIC)? Or do you have to pick either raw or processed images?
  • Can you shoot raw+jpeg?

  • Created discussion thread Questions about Viewfinder Quality
    My only experiences with viewfinders are with small, entry-level cameras (Canon SL1, SL2, and SX 70). I wish I had a brighter, larger, more detailed view. I also wish the SL2 would show grid ...
  • Replied in Starburst
    Interesting. I just assumed it related to the SX70 having a much smaller sensor but I see that is wrong. I definitely prefer the look you get from an odd number of blades.
  • Thanks. I ordered a filter and will give it a try!
  • Created discussion thread Capture Sun Starburst with Canon SX 70
    I've tried many times to get a starburst effect with the SX 70 by going to the smallest aperture (f 8.0). I like it but it does not have as many thin lines as I get with my SL2. Is it possible to ...
