Well this is my first body with Exposure Compensation in M mode (although I have never used elsewhere, either) and I do look forward to having adequate SS and if the ISO is over 3200.... oh well ~ I always say better to get the critical shot with some noise than motion blur...

I will always take noise over motion blur. You can fix noise. I like to shoot with faster SS but recently have been lowering them. I'm shaky.

For precise tracking I usually shoot in Case 2, TS set to -2 and either single or expansion. When in 65 point I'm usually in Case 6.

Here I tried the small zone AF in Case 2 just to see what would happen. I used those settings the whole shoot.

That is why my 1.4 III lived in the bag most of the time. The 7D2 just has too many fun focusing options and I like to use many of them. When the birds get back I can hardly wait to try out my 100-400 II and the TC with my 5D4.

DP,
Suggestion ...
Try taping the pins on your TZc so that it doesn't report. (You'll need to cha be MFA of the base lens to that of it with the TC.
Hen give all 65 af points a try at f8! I think youll be surprised by the coverage.
Let us know.

I have heard of it but never tried it. Only thing in the sky this time of year are ravens. Travelling in several days and leaving the big guns at home. I'll look into it when I get back. Something to shoot should be back by then.

It picked out this one with a moving bus behind it. It was a major crop as it was far away.

Of course you set it up the way you like but they are all designed the same way and do the same thing.

Im not so sure on that one, But I will say the camera and lens must work together to make up 50% of an image,..The other 50% is up to the photog to get the desired result.

I would probably use the same settings on my 300L F4 IS as I would for my 100-400 II. Only difference is the 100-400 AF is way faster than my 300. There is nothing I could think of that I could do about that. The 100-400 has IS mode 3 which is a nice feature.

Over christmas through January I had two 100-400LII and two 7DII's trying to figure out why I was getting odd looking images. they didn't look motion blur, they looked like the images people complain about just not right, off somehow. I switched out of mode 3 of which Ive been using most of the fall and BOOM problem gone. So I'm back to mode2 for most everything. Everything Ive posted the last few months is just off hand. tripods buggin me these days

Hmm. I think that last series post #16623 I gave mode 3 a run. It took a bit to get used to it but it seemed to work. Maybe because I shoot with faster shutter speeds? I don't know.

This is a great portrait. He looks so pleased with himself. You all have some wonderful birds down under. I would love to visit, with my camera, someday.

Kicked the tires on my new body this morning... unfortunately two times my center focus got moved off-center... not sure how...

The back top right button controls where the focus point goes but I'll be darned if I know how it got moved twice...

I never purposely move it, my shutter is metering only and use BBF for recomposing sometimes...
Anyways, a few offerings from this morning ~
