thanks for taking a look and thanks for the words!

hmmm the bridge I am not sure I remember that - I know we walked in towards the glacier for what seemed about 1 mile.

hope that gives you an idea but I do not remember a bridge being there - this is Jökulsárlón - maybe there is one on another side?

Sorry for not being clear. I meant the bridge between the lake and the ocean - you would have driven over it if you went around the northern side of the lake. But a mile sounds about right in any case. Thanks.

Some inconsiderate person has put a piling rig or similar in my sunset. Yeah, bit of cloning tool work required.

Nice! I would be happy with those shots, especially 1 and 2, in a BMW sales brochure!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Did you get nailed on the front plate? My friends M4 has a plate location kit to the side... Great shots, and that looks like a blast! Don't see any pumice/sand, so no rock chips and hopefully no slow drivers in your way!

Ugh... Used the center 9 points F8 ISO800 1/3200 + 1.4xIII...

Starting to lose faith in the Canon setup. Middle of the day, perfect light, he slowly glided off the tree and dropped, was able to get this shot and then once there was more tree in the backround, it OFCOURSE picks out the trees to focus on, then once he slowed even more to eye some prey, then it locked back on but was still blurry.

I think the best bird images have amazing backrounds, not just a sharp bird with a blue sky. This scenario has occurred so many times it's extremely frustrating. Is it based on the whole contrast thing taking precedent over the moving object? It does wonderful for perched birds, but once you have trees, it seems to jump to those.

I have it set on case 2 "Continue to track subjects, ignoring possible obstacles" Tracking Sensitivity +2, Accel./Dece. tracking -2, AF pt auto switching 0.

Open to suggestions, but I'd rather have less megapixels and a sharp image over 30-50 megapixels of blur, let along the wasted time on countless trips thinking that "well, maybe NEXT time, I'll get that shot...." Starting to think I should actually rent a Nikon setup with the new 100-500 lens and simply compare for FLIGHT shots with confusing backrounds. Again, backround = makes the shot, unless the bird has prey or it's doing something unique, otherwise, it's just another sharp bird photo, of which most of us move to more noble pursuits/wish to grow/avoid atrophy.

Holy crap, this is an awesome capture, Chris. NAILED this shot. I don't think I could have gotten anything like this, dude.

Over on FM, everyone is switching to Nikon suddenly because of this, as did Art Morris. Apparently current Nikon AF in the D500/D850/D5 would have locked onto and tracked your hawk no problem. Not that Canon AF can't do it, but it users report that Nikon AF makes it effortless. It may be worth checking out the D500/200-500 as a second system.

Here's the thing: it's not an all-or-nothing decision. Nikon happens to do this one thing better, Canon has their list of things they do better. Both systems rock, there's nothing saying we can't mix and match. The D850 makes things difficult though, that is one awesome camera that I wouldn't hesitate to switch for. Yet, I won't, because I took a Pepcid last year and my GAS has been at a low, manageable level for some time. :-)

forum: Canon EOS Digital Cameras

There are enough BIF shots around from this camera (several in this thread) to demonstrate that tracking a moving bird is a fairly easy task for the camera and this shot represents nothing challenging for the camera's AF. It is all down to the user and configuration. Personally I avoid using 9 point selection when there are strong background elements that the camera might lock onto. On a bird perched or moving from a strong, contrasty background it is asking for trouble. With that subject the expand AF (5 points) would be my choice or possibly single point. You've got a large subject headed straight for you that looks easy enough to keep framed in the centre. I use one of these two selections almost exclusively with an alternate, larger AF selection programmed to another button should I need it. Sometimes with a perched bird I start with a single point and then switch to an expanded selection when the bird moves closer or away from potentially confusing background elements. Larger AF areas only come into play when I determine there is less likelihood that backgrounds will interfere with operation. Your case setting look good I'd only add that for birding using AI Servo I have the 1st shot priory set to focus priority but this doesn't sound like an issue in your case. You mention the use of a TC. Which glass are you using in front of it? I find that TCs are great accessories but they rarely make life easier when trying to capture BIF.

I like your setup (Single Point on one button, Large AF on another). Will give this a try for myself; currently I just have single AF point for both back buttons, but one is Servo, the other Single-Shot.

Actually you don't have to change that configuration at all. I don't use my DOF preview button and you can configure that for an alternate AF configuration. This way you can be using your typical BB AI servo config with one point or whatever and by pressing the DOF preview you can engage a whole new set of characteristics including the AF selection and case setting configurations. That's how I do things. I see a bird perching so I lock onto it with a single point using my BB as usual. If it start to move and that configuration works I keep with it but if I need an expanded AF zone I just mash down on the DOF preview button to engage it and let go if I no longer need it. Just go to custom controls, choose the DOF preview button, set it to 'switch to registered AF function' and then press 'info' to detail set. There are other buttons that can be programmed for the same function but I'm not sure which ones. Also of note, you can have different custom AF scenarios like this on top of your already custom scenarios AND you can have them configured differently for each custom setting position!!!
