That's sound like a good setup Kester.

Here's a Pileated Woodpecker and Northern Shoveler I captured at one of my local spots

New 7D2 arrived today and had a quick play with it and Tamron 150-600mm. Hopefully I'll get out later this week and get to use it properly.

Some really good images from everyone lately. I went out for another sunset last night, a bit of an experiment combining some long exposures around Sunset time.

Lovely scenes. I agree with the other comments - the second shot is particularly nice.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I'd appreciate some help this group. I have set my M2 up with back button focusing in 2 different ways. The "AF-ON" button is "One Shot" and the "*" button is "AI Servo". Both are in 4 point expansion.....I watched an Art Morris YouTube video last night and he had only one button set up for back button focusing and that one was AI Servo. He said that if he was shooting a still subject he pressed the button and released to achieve focus and took the shot. Since there was no tracking without pressing the button it was the same as one shot. For moving targets he just held the button down.

I think I have over-thought my settings and can skip the "*" button AI Servo and set up just like Art? Have I missed something?

Thanks in advance.

Larry

Larry, your set up is fine. Art is just probably used to how he's done things with previous bodies for the past 100 years; he may not be aware of that setting - maybe you should make a comment about this option as many are not aware of it. I have mine setup the same way as does many others (mine with spot focus though). The good thing is you can use both for still images, but with different focus area settings now. We just did not have the 3rd option in the past. Now, you get the best of 3 worlds with the 7D2.

Hell, in cold weather when I have to wear gloves, I switch back to the shutter button because sometimes it's difficult using those little back buttons.

You are good, just go and practice both methods.

Btw, do you have link to Art's video? It doesn't cost to watch it does it?

Yes Larry, you're fine. I have mine setup similarly as you have.
Just work with what you're comfortable with.

Fantastic capture kesterc, very well done.

If I may ask, what case and AF settings are you using for images like this?

Cheers
Gus

Really great stuff everyone.

I just received my 7d2 yesterday and my initial thoughts are all of the pretty danged happy variety.

I will be shooting a swim meet Saturday, has anyone shot swimming? Any suggestions on which Case to use? I will be using my 70-200 f2.8 II and my 85 f1.8 lenses and I'll use single point so I can nail the faces as they breath. The 10 fps will be great for sniping those extremely quick freestyle breaths with 2-3 frames per.

For that shot:

Large Zone AF, left block
Case 1 with -2, +2, +2
1st image priority - focus, 2nd - equal
Intital AFpt, Al servo AF: Auto
iTR: On

Also helps to set the lens focus limiter to farthest so acquisition is improved.
