Nice shots. Looks a lot like here - in the summer bog and trees; in the winter snow and trees.

Would you believe I had to write that three times because auto correct kept changing the words. Oh well, that's progress.

I hate spell check too Rod, drives me nuts.. One day id like to get out your way. I'm betting it would feel like home. This Jay looks like he ran into something as he was bleeding just a bit.

Hello!
Just for curiosity's sake - have you tried shooting the same camera/lens combo for static subjects? If you want to eliminate potential issues, you should give it a try. I learned a lot about my technique (read this as what I was doing wrong initially) by shooting my sports combos on a tripod using a sign and a fence as my subjects. Boring, but it will show you if it's your equipment or technique that needs to change. Make the test as static and simple as possible and you should see where you might need to focus your efforts to improve.

Good luck with it and keep shooting!

Some weekend birds with the 7D II, 500 F4 and 1.4x Even though I bought the 5d IV, I still use the 7D II when I need reach and the light is good (my controlled tests confirm that it has better resolution than a more heavily cropped 5D IV if reach is needed). A Pied-Billed Grebe, and a Red-Tailed Hawk, of the northern abeiticola subspecies (for you bird watchers). I love these fall colours for the backgrounds. Both taken in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Indeed. I think you need at least 1/1000 for sport. Unless of course you want a bit of motion blur. I would bump that ISO up to double that amount. The camera will handle that easily. :-)


Larry Weinman wrote in post #18160024 (external link)
I don't see a focus problem here, I see a too slow shutter speed problem. It is fuzzy at parts of the body that are moving faster, hands, feet etc. raise your shutter speed, otherwise very good shot.

Guys, slow down and look. The issue wasn't softness on the lead runner. The issue was the focal plane fell on the rear player. The front player was just onside in front of the dof.

Not that I don't disagree that increased SS certainly helps sharpness. 1/640 for sure won't freeze fast moving hands and feet. But head on isn't as bad as side running. Always an iso trade off.

The resolution on potn can make analysis challenging. Was this post properly sharp, or still soft? And was is a crop from the full frame?
At first glance, I thought the focus landed properly.

Lovely capture of your grandson Sid, I have not had the chance with my grandchildren x4 with my 7d2 yet.

Thanks Mark, he's the only one so far though I do have four kids so there will be more along presently :)
