Crank the ISO up, the 1D3 an pump out images at 3200 that can be easily cleaned up- and 6400 that are acceptable!

Went to the park today. I sat on the path watching a couple of Grey Herons near the pond, waiting for them to take off or interact when a small group of people walked past me. I glance over my shoulder and think: "is that an owl?" So I point the lens, focus and click, no time for adjustments of any kind. I thought the shot would be a total miss as they were in deep shade and I couldn't see anything, but it's fine and sure enough, that was an owl, a Eurasian eagle-owl to be exact. Here's the shot. How weird is that?

Wow, you're quick, Chet!! :lol: Thanks!

Isn't it crazy? I usually don't take pics of captive birds, but this one was too good to be true!
Of course now I need to find out what the story with this guy is...

I got the code this weekend. I shut it off and turned it back on and all was good. Hopefully it was just a fluke.

Oh dear...
Keeping fingers crossed it was just a fluke, Chet.


Chet wrote in post #17926804 (external link)
Yeah. Kind of interested to see what they tell Joayne and what the price of repair is.


I hope all goes well, Chet!
I will be going to Canon on Tuesday.
It is 120 miles away, but I do go near there every couple of months.
I'll be sure to post outcomes.

I can hear the shutter stick and then release.. I think of it as using the "bulb" setting  :p

So, he is just walking around with an owl!
I wonder if it has been injured or something...

But a very cool image!

Thanks, Jo. I thought so too. And unusual. I mean, this guys was walking through the park carrying an owl! I'm glad I managed that one shot at least.

I did meet another park regular later and I asked her about it. She said this guy often tags along when the old folks from the nearby retirement home are taken out for a walk on sunny days and he always brings one or two birds. Often an owl, sometimes another raptor. It's just totally weird. :eek:

bildeb0rg, finally got round to SAVING these images. I was stupid, lazy and had a slight accident with my newly acquired 70-200... so I was feeling 'meh'. Essentially replicated my settings off of my 5D from last time... boy was that a mistake. Fortunately post processing + my partner/second shooter saved the day. Here's a few of the first of the night:

So, I need to adjust something or other. The focusing seemed great through the viewfinder but it seems to just miss the moment.

read about your 70-200 in your other thread and feel for you. however i would have gone straight to your 50 f1.8 over the 24-105. as for settings i would need exif intact to help with that. based on the pics you posted i would say increase iso to 1600+ to freeze the action and worry about the noise later. in post increase the contrast and colour and crop ruthlessly.
you clearly have the gear and the talent, so just keep plugging away.

My partner used the 50mm and saved the day... I don't know why I didn't bump up the ISO any more, assuming 1000 would be the limit. Silly little mistakes :(

Exif was at is reads: 1/200 shutter, F4, ISO 1000. The 70-200 worked, but the ring was abit too small: should of listened to you to begin with in regards to the wide angle and low aperture... (Definitely renting the 35L for the next one).

Also, I'll be shooting in raw next time... Why did I want to shoot JPGs in Cinestyle?

And thank you for comment, means a lot :) Thank you

1600-3200 cleans up with a bit of work and you can crop right down to 2000 px on the long side and still get a useable 10x8 print. Try and avoid H if you can. If I go that high I dial in 2/3 of a stop positive comp so it's really only a 1/3 stop gain, but it keeps the noise down. The lights look horrific, I'll assume they were 500w each, ask if they can up them to 1000w for next time. Did you use the cf settings I sent you re AF and release priority? They should save you a lot of missed focus files esp if you use off centre points. I had a look at your site and there's some good pics there
