I'd sure like to have a bird trained so well as that. It would only take us a few hundred tries.

Although I still have a table top tripod (Neewer 20") which I use for my spotting scope and for my camera when I do astrophotography; I no longer have need for or use a full size tripod.

I now use a long cylindrical bean bag. It is excellent for static birds and wildlife. In the past my main bird set-up was a 7D2 with a EF 400 f/5.6L and the bag was more than adequate for that.

Now that I have switched to the RX10; whether I am shooting from my car as a blind or off the side of a tree, this bag provides me with a rock solid platform to shoot from. I got this one at Bass Pro Shop and it was under $20.00.

The MSC Seaside is a 160 kiloton Cruise ship with a 5,179 passenger capacity. It was approximately 1 to 2 miles from our ship the Carnival Glory. The 1st shot is a 50mm equivalent of the Seaside and the 2nd is a 600mm X2 shot with a 100% view superimposed of the name on the side of the ship.

Yes, if the situation warrants it. As a bird photographer I often see ground feeders like this Savannah Sparrow and when I see them I like to get a nice low perspective shot.

Spotted a Wild Turkey tonight on my way home from the dog park. Unable to control the blown out top of his head, I should have spot metered off of it. Still getting used to the new camera. I'll get there. Not sure why the EXIF info is not showing in the post???

I've a question for you pros. When setting the ISO to Auto- of course on occasion it goes higher than what I would
like when on f4 or so. The result is noise. I did not have that problem with Canon. How do you correct that in post? I'm using Photoshop- any other program suggestions?

Didn't have noise with Canon? Seriously?
I owned almost every recent (last 10 years) Canon made and
like any camera had to think of shutter speed and its relationship to noise and ISO.
Maybe I missed something :)
p.s. not a pro. Never made a penny off photography.

Hi, Roses.

Perhaps your Canon experience was with a full frame sensor and/or a model limit set on ISO expansion. Shooting any digital body, I consider auto ISO as reserved for emergency situations where we don't have time to prepare and must get the shot.

I've tried a few alternatives, some promising magic results, but found nothing better than shooting RAW and the careful use of ACR. For me that includes a first step of making sure either no sharpening is applied or the use of masking to protect block areas and applying only moderate sharpening where it might really be needed.

With the new ACR Texture slider you might want to trying reducing the noise at bit at first and then fine turning all or part of the image with the Texture control.

You might also want to dig down in the settings and reduce your auto ISO range if noise keeps spoiling the fun. I think there's also a an expanded ISO option designed for fast moving subjects but I've never used it. Perhaps someone here can provide more information.

(Back in the old days pushing Tri-X all the way from 200 or later 400 to 800 or even the astounding 1600 was exciting and the grain just accepted as a consequence.)

Thank you George, you are correct re : Canon. It was a full frame and I had to option to set limit on ISO. I appreciate your suggestions and will give that a try.

There is a high ISO auto setting which will take 3 shots and combine the three to produce a picture with less noise. This is mostly used on static shots where there is little movement. If you try it you will see that the camera does delay the following shot in order to do the combination of shots. I've done a 4,000 ISO shot of a sleeping cat on this page ( https://photography-on-the.net …ead.php?t=14867​22&page=54 ) that I mistakenly set it to this above setting and you can see relatively little noise. I did not realize that I had done this when posting the picture as I do remember that the camera paused a bit after taking the shot. Much later I played with the "high ISO auto" setting and it dawned on me that that is what happened. Tony Northrup uses this technique in Photoshop to get less noise and sharper images when he uses his Micro 4/3's cameras.
