Took the 80D to the zoo for its second outing. Metering is definitely different so I will have to ditch my 7D settings.

This is with a Kenko 1.4x Pro 300 DGX. It has no problem focusing with more than just the center AF point. Pretty happy with it.

Can anyone ID this bird? Really happy with the feather detail. It even looks good at 100%.

Been looking through some of the pics from my recent visit to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. Here are a colour and monochrome version of the same scene after a bit of tinkering in LR. Can't decide which I prefer.

Colour for me. I love how the church stands out among the green, which is framed by the blue sky and water.

Thanks for the advice everyone.

AF settings I used were:
  • All AF points
  • AI Servo
  • Tracking Sensitivity: -1
  • Accel./Decel. Tracking:: +1
  • AF Point Auto Switching: +1
  • 1st Image Priority: Focus Priority
  • 2nd Image Priority: Focus Priority


Shutter speeds were 1/1250 & 1/1600 (raised the speed after I saw that lots of photos were just not sharp enough) and IS was off.

This might not be a good example photo but unfortunately I deleted most of them right away :oops:

Know this is an old post, but your softness looks like it is due to panning motion. Look at the edges of the bird, they blurred and most noticeable. It boils down to technique, don't jerk the camera and be smooth, higher SS would continue to help too. I happen to use +2 for your two +1 settings.

I tried some BIF again today. I changed the Tracking Sensitivity setting to -2 and felt it tracked the birds a bit better that way. I also raised shutter speed to 1/2000 as has been suggested. While I did get some nice shots, I still had lots of photos were nothing was really in focus.
One example:

Basically the whole bird is slightly out of focus. Other shots are nice and sharp, but I feel there are way too many like this one.
I'd like to try without the extender, but the dang birds just won't let me get close enough.
Maybe I should just stick to macro :rolleyes:

Are you getting consistently sharp photos when stationary? Has MFA been done, this shot looks like it could be slightly back focused, but it could be tracking or technique issue.
Again, technique can't be haphazard, and some effort for steadiness is necessary, even with 1/2000 when at 560mm. Definitely can Not be in Mode 1 IS and if you are, it would explain this, try mode 2 or three to help.

Question: I just noticed on my 80D when i depress the shutter button half way the LCD comes on but it seems to stay on during the picture taking procedure, i. e. even when I put the camera to my eye. Don't remember that happening before. Plus the LCD seems to stay on longer than I remember.

Have I got some settings messed up? If there a setting for changing any of that? I've looked but don't seem to find an appropriate setting to change these things. Seems to me that once the camera is brought to the eye the LCD should go black. No?

There use to be a light sensor that would detect the eye coming to the VzF in some models that would turn off the LCD. I believe the original 7d had it. But, most newer models do Not have it any long for some unknown reason. You can only change the on time of the LCD with 30seconds being the minimum. The LCD drains the battery, about 6% extra per hour of being on.
