Thanks

Good point, I just edited my signature to include the statement "Image Editing Ok" seems to work okay.

Went to the Sacramento NWR this past weekend. I really like this camera. I wouldn't trade my 1D IV for it, but it makes a really nice second body for wildlife shooting. I'm still trying to determine the best shooting modes for it. I wanted to test the auto ISO so on these shots I had it set to f8 at 1/1000 on auto ISO with +2/3 EC dialed in. The hawk was a bit under exposed and the duck was a bit overexposed, but neither by much.

Good to see some nice wildlife shots coming through, can't wait till my 100-400 arrives.

Went out earlier this evening, probably not the best composition but the first half-way decent sunset we've had here for a while so grabbed the camera and headed out. Just liked the reflections on the water.

Well glass is not the best to shoot through but I have shot through dirty thick zoo glass and got some pretty decent shots. What lens did you use, what was the DOF and how far were you from the bird? I'd like to determine your total DOF.

Look very closely at the birds foot and it is not in focus. Now follow down the top of the head of of the statue. When it gets to the the top of the forehead it is much sharper. It starts to sharpen up about half way. I'm not sure if the focus point on the feathers is behind or before where the image starts to sharpen. Personally I don't think the feathers are in perfect focus which is making the head look OOF. Of course this depends on your total DOF. I could be wrong but I'd like to figure it out.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this in depth.

I used a 300mm f4.0 + 1.4x MkII extender, f5.6 at a distance of 40 feet. I think I will also look into MFA as per ancientone80's post.

I use the Dot Tune method when doing MFA, in my experience this generally gets you very close, then when using the lens in every day shooting, especially with shots like yours with a narrow DOF, you can get a feel for if it needs bumped an extra little bit either way, but Dot Tune will get you get close enough to start with.
Good luck and enjoy the process.

Cheers

No problem. You had about 6 inches total DOF so border line with your focus point selection but it obviously FF a tad. I have shot with that same lens and TC combo, focused on the body and got it in focus shots.

Good luck

Wildlife from our wine tasting excursion to Alexander Valley. (I am the designated driver and take photos while the rest of our group taste.)

Nice hawk and duck! On the duck, the 7D2 really caught the focus nicely against that complex background.

Does the 7D2 have a built in intervalometer? I searched the PDF manual without any results. I've seen articles mention the 7Dii having this feature, but no other details.

Looking for information on how to access and the options it allows.

Thank you.

Yes, search the manual for Interval and you will find it. Page 250 of the full manual.
