Thanks for the kind comments. Interestingly, I processed these last two on my iPad, with basic Pixelmator. They were both taken in very dull light, so I exagerrated it a little and added vignette. Proves I can manage without the iMac and Lightroom. The 80D handles low light brilliantly, of course. I remember reading ages ago that the best pics are often taken in bad weather, and we've had plenty of bad weather up here in Scotland, so you could say I've been lucky photo wise.ߘ:-P

Urban wildlife at a petting zoo.....

The Canon 10-22 did a great job in helping me document my kid's school field trip. I much prefer the 16-35 UWA on a full frame but the lightweight 80D combo with 10-22 was a fun shoot that day!

The high iso noise still bothers me even on the 80D. Im trying to not let it bug me so much. What are some good ways to remove in post? I usually just do it in lr. But its an overall nr

The ship was ISO 640 and little or no noise. I didn't have LR on the iPad, so did no noise reduction. I admit my instinct is to set the ISO as low as I can. Probably goes back to the days when we used film, but I really don't think you have to with the 80D.

No it handles it fine. I still have my auto ISO top out at 3200. Even though i took a test shot showing iso values 100 -12000 and even at 12k its useable. The noise just bothers me as i see it.

I also simply remove the noise in Lightroom. I use the masking slider to make sure that LR sharpens only what I want and not out of focus areas. Otherwise the out of focus areas will look quite strange, esp. in high ISO shots.

Tried some BIF today. Can anybody give me some advice for AF settings? My keeper rate left a lot to be desired (= was way lower than I expected) although my shutter speed was high and I've turned IS off.

I'm not sure about the 80D because I don't have one yet but my typical BIF settings on my 60D are:

RAW, AI Servo, Back Button Focus, high speed continuous shooting, shutter speed of at least 1/2000 and I usually stop down to aperture 6.3 and keep my ISO as low as I can. If shooting them against the sky I usually meter the sky and bump then over expose about 2 stops as a starting point, fire off a few pics and check the exposure of the bird. I also have my 9 focus points set (that's all I have) and try to keep the bird in the centre point.

I typically have these settings as my custom setting and then figure out my exposure if they are near the ground and set that as my manual settings. Then I can switch back and forth from C1 to M depending on where the bird is flying.

Thanks. I got lots of "not quite sharp" photos - meaning AF had clearly locked onto the bird (and not the background) but they weren't really sharp. I used shutter speeds of 1/1250 and 1/1600 - could these have been too slow?
I used all AF points (with the centre one as the starting point) and also tried to keep the bird in the centre.
