that is pretty cool...I like that idea. How long did it take for them to get comfortable with the camera being there?

I just realized that image was shot using my Canon 5D3 so I must have used the Canon remote utility. Sorry about that.

But, it took no time at all really. Once I noticed she kept coming back to one particular branch, I set up my camera and went inside. I didn't have to wait long for her to return. It's even easier using my Sony camera with silent shutter and live view. They aren't even aware I'm taking photographs of them.

She is 'standing guard' and watching 'her' feeder on that perch btw.

I keep meaning to try that with the Bluebirds, and will try to do that next season, setup the camera on a tripod where I can see them better, and try to use the App...probably have the CamRanger2 by then.

I'm looking forward to seeing your result Travis. I wish we had Bluebirds in this part of the country. We do get Scrub Jays though. :-)

Here's a test video I shot in 2015 using my smartphone to control my Sony a7rII to video hummingbirds at the feeder by remote control. Lens used is the Sony FE 55mm f1.8 @ f6.3.

Shot in 4K

Anyone selling their Sony a7r 3?
Not much on the sell forums, just wanted to ask here

Out of curiosity this morning I checked the going rate on eBay as I had a notion of upgrading to the a7r IV but the used prices seem too low for my liking. Very good if someone is looking to pick a III up though

I think I could probably set it up pretty close and put the 70-200 on there...get close at 2.8 instead of not close at 5.6!

I didn't know where the birds would land so I used the 55mm lens to show more of the feeder. I should have blocked off all the 'flowers' except one and focused on that one using my 100-400 lens instead. I was curious how close I could set up my camera too of course.

Using the Nikkor 300PF on the Riv via the Commlite.
Fine for perched. Doubtful for BIF.

Hard to justify madness ;)
We'll see. Maybe I could use the blind+camo+bait and get REAL close, then crop like hell! Cropper mode gives me 52.5mm, that'd help a bit :)

See you already have it all planned out ;) haha

As teh sun was setting on Road Atlanta, it went through several color phases...the warm golden light gave way to the soft pinks, purples and pastels that we rarely see around here...it usually just fades out...this one was pretty epic. And fitting that probably the most epic Motorsports image I have ever shot...in my opinion...was at that moment.

Gorgeous installation. Where is it?

It's in a town named Agueda in Central Portugal. The town is famous for these displays, they line every major street with different umbrella collections but every year it's a little bit different, I've been making a habit of going there very time I visit Portugal just because it's so unique.
