Took a trip to the Phoenix Zoo today and spent a little bit of time playing with the focus bracketing option on the R5 some more, with the EF 100mm f/2.8L IS lens. These are anything from 30 to 65 shot stacks, all hand-held. Overall, it works really well, but I still have a few things to touch up on in terms of technique and using stacking software.

This is an awesome image! Which extender did you use? I recently got a Canon 100-400mm II and I'm in the market for a 2x. Your result looks great, hence the question :)

These turned out really well. The first one with both snakes in focus is especially nice.

I tried the built-in Focus Bracketing on a Wasp's nest hanging off one of our Cycad leaves in the front garden.

Even though the Cycad leaves are quite rigid, the slightest of breezes would move the nest side to side in the frame and this introduced some stacking artefacts. I used Helicon Focus to Align and Stack the 20 frames.:-)

The wasps also kept on moving legs, bums and antennae between frames...:rolleyes:

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks PinholeR5

It's the Canon 2x iii and it works really well with the R5.

Well they're pretty damn good!

I've not tried the focus stacking for macro yet but it looks pretty impressive, it certainly fires off the shots quickly! In a quick test I managed to get my flash to fire 5 times @ 1/128. I'll have to see how it fares in real life.

Ok. Thanks. I've gotten some good results with the Sigma 150-600 C + the TC-2001 teleconverter, but the results aren't quite at the same IQ. Going to try it out on the 100-400mm II to see if I get anywhere near this IQ. If not, I'll probably invest in the Canon 2x III.

Greater Roadrunner in what is sometimes referred to as a "warming pose" which exposes his soft, downy back feathers to the warm sunshine...

Interesting. I'm assuming by your description that it can expose its feathers like this at will, i.e., without the help of wind?

Hi SYS...

Normally, the Roadrunner has his wings folded over most of his back with just a little of the downy feathers showing at the base of his tail (see below). When he goes into the warming pose, he seems to arch his wings away from his back to let the sun warm him. There was no wind on the day I shot the original photo above, so I'm assuming those downy feathers are just unruly little fly-aways. :-)

TC results don't depend on just the optics; TCs contribute to information in the total system that determines how fast the AF motors are driven.

The Canon 2xIII and most (all?) of the mark II lenses together allow a faster AF drive with certain bodies, like the 1Dx2 and 1Dx3, and the R5 and R6. Many other TCs (including the mark II Canon TCs, IIRC), if they are reporting TCs, will tell the system to slow down the AF motor speed. If you cheat, and tape the pins of a reporting converter, the focus may overshoot in low light and low contrast, and make it harder for focus to stay locked on target, flying off focus easily.

Your Sigma lens and TC may have a special relationship, but the photos I see of them show that they both have the 3 extra contacts for standard reporting. It takes these extra 3 pins on both the lens and TC for communication to occur.

Thanks, Tom, for your explanation. I regret that I wasn't into photography when I was living in Tucson -- from 1994 to 2002. I miss javelinas, scorpions and quails. Never got to see a roadrunner, though.
