=<font style="vertical-align: inherit;"><font style="vertical-align: inherit;">Tronhard</font></font>;19222601]My Fav Bird - the Fabulous Kea. Smart as a primate, the world's only mountain parrot, lives in the alpine regions of NZ. They mate for life, love to play and can demolish a car by unscrewing bolts and screws, removing rubber trim and windshield wipers and will decimate your shoe laces if you leave your boots outside. But they are like small kids - quite loveable and absolutely fascinating to watch...

Both these images are from the same shot. The first is uncropped, the second heavily so. I reckon the R6 does an OK job, personally!


this is an important sentence for me

OK, I admit I have a special affection for Orangutans: they are really amazing creatures. They manage to look as if they are wise, and considering great matters...

I always get the feeling that they wonder why people destroy everything. Great picture.

Great crested grebe.
It was late in the day but a low sun easily gets the whites on these birds overexposed. So I exposed for the whites and hoped for the best. I honestly didn't know what to do in post. Just brightened the crest a bit so it stood out against the background and applied some sharpening.

sometimes you can take a photo with a "timeless" element. It's such a picture, congratulations.

Are you thinking of switching to mirrorless too, Grzegorz?

I really like how you used the water in these shots. I’ve never seen that before and the result is really nice. My favourite is the second, but both are great.

I have been considering this for a long time. I am a bit afraid that it will be too easy and I will lose the challenge and joy, although I understand it will be a wow in the beginning. additionally I love 5d and its 30 ߙ

I'd say it's just as challenging if not more in a sense. With Mirrorless AF isn't as much of a concern and since you can focus across the entire frame, there's no excuse if you mess up your composition haha. In the same sense, you can focus more on the creative aspects of your image and not the technical one so really it's more of test on your than the camera if it makes sense.

I understand. I do. I’m not half the bird photographer you are but I do love shooting birds and no camera has ever given me more joy than the 1DIIn or given me better images. Although I was younger then and healthier and I would work harder to get good images, like being in the countryside before the sun came up, so there is that (getting up in the middle of the night is more problematic these days).

The R5 or R6 have a much improved AF system but nothing else has changed. The photographer still has to do his or her bit. And the AF also has its limits and challenges, it’s not faultless. I love shooting birds in flight and locking onto a suddenly appearing bird is harder with my R6 than it was with any of my 1D bodies. However, once it is locked on it tracks much better. The AF can still lose the bird though and jump to something else. So it’s not perfect. Just better.

Coming from a 5DIV with 30mpx you might not be happy with the 20mpx of the R6 and would maybe want the R5. Or the R3, even though that camera has “only” 24 mpx.

It’s a hard decision.

So true, and I think it does a disservice when people who refuse to find any fault with their latest toy tell other people how everything is so much better in every way, when, in fact, they will get a new toy later and only then start to admitting to the previous toys' weaknesses. I know one guy who implies his R5 has flawless AF and IBIS stability to everyone who asks about his camera, but I like to give the weaknesses along with the strengths, but many people misinterpret that as a poor review, if anything negative is said.

My experience with the R5 is like yours with the R6; it may not be as good as a DSLR for initial acquisition, even compared to non-1-series DSLRs, but once the AI can determine what it is to focus on, it clings much more tightly than a DSLR, especially with RF lenses that can make more AF adjustments per second.

Of course, if the open f-ratio is higher than 9, then these cameras always have an advantage over a DSLR even if they're slow, as I've never heard of any DSLR AF-ing at all in OVF mode at f/10 or higher.

thanks, when I smile because 1 d ii is still on the shelf, r5 and more R3 is money, Canon knows what it is doing. I have 63 so I feel a bit too, but most of my topics will require a wake up at 3 AM until the end ߙ the argument of 30 mpx prevails and I will have to wait, or gas will win
