Went for a walk with the 150-600C while the local garage looked at the breaks on my car

Used the Sigma 1.4x TC, doesn't seem to communicate the aperture correctly through the Fringer Pro II

Spotted a nesting box while walking around a lake, Blue Tits were flying in and out with food for the little 'uns switched to ES and Pre-Shot, this is best of a really bad batch, couldn't get a clear shot of the box and with people walking past every 3 minutes.. oh well

I was shooting birds today also, but a different breed. 737-8AS touching down in Dublin this morning, you know the feeling of all on board at that exact moment.

Different kind of bird, a duck posing for me during some video shooting, a 10Bit DCI4K pull from my X-T4 in Eterna, nice.

The shot and the view. 60 meters away. Long lenses are great fun at times.

Been trying out the 100-400, including with a 2x teleconverter, and I can't say that I'm very favorably impressed by the results I'm getting. Or, to put more accurately, not impressed with the results that I'm able to get, because those photos that are good (I'm putting this one in that category, although it's still not perfect) certainly can look gorgeous. However, the AF is a huge fail on my X-T30 and, while I understand that it's probably not the best in the Fuji family, I certainly would expect it to be better than I've seen it perform in this particular role. It's a night-and-day difference with my a6600 - the X-T30 even had trouble acquiring good focus on the bird in this situation, and most of the photos from that series were soft, while this should be an easy focusing job. (And not due to camera shake: I did have the lens on a monopod.)

Anyone know of any good cheap or free HDR software? I tried blending in ON1, but it couldn't align the images properly, same story with my trial of the Nik collection's HDR software. I did my best to blend a couple images with layers, but I've never been super good at that, guess I'll need to practice more :lol:

Anyway, 2 shot HDR(ish) from the blood moon the other night... didn't anticipate it being as hard to get right as it was given my failing tripod head, but I was happy just to watch it.

I'm afraid I can't help you with your question on HDR software, but that's a really cool shot of the blood moon. Wished I could have shot it myself, and even rented the 100-400 with the 2x teleconverter, but it's only after I realized that the weather was terrible, and proved right in this case ;(. Am curious, your title suggest this is a "resize", was this your original framing or is it a crop? [What lens were you using?: nvm looked at the flickr image.] In any case, did you end up shooting it from a longer focal length?

Boost mode? Interesting, I had to look it up in the user manual, and even it's buried in the power management option. Now I'll have to wonder if this could have potentially solved the problem, as my rental period is pretty much over (still got the lens for two more evenings, but the weather forecast is just plain terrible for the next few days) and I won't have a good chance to test it, unless the weather turns tomorrow. That being said, if this reduces battery efficiency, then I almost don't want to know how this would affected my outcomes, I'd go through several batteries every time I went out.

Yes, that particular shot is the original framing. To me the cool part of the blood moon was how all the stars around the moon looked, shots of totality itself honestly just looks like the moon when I shoot it with my full spectrum X-Pro2 :lol:

That said, it was an incredibly cool thing to see in person, very otherworldly with an area with low light pollution like up here. I was tempted to run back up to my house and get a faster but shorter telephoto to capture more of the stars, kinda wish I did in hindsight.

I do have some more shots particularly of the partial eclipse with the 55-200mm at 200mm and cropped, as well as some from an old 500mm Nikkor mirror lens my dad gave me, still trying to get the edits right on those, will share when done, been hard blending the multiple exposures to get the color transfer from the dark to light side of the moon, it's like a 5+ stop difference.

The image was resized with ON1s resize Ai which I recently discovered, pretty awesome software.

Yes, it drains the battery faster but your AF is increased quite a bit.

I'll have to test it in some way at some point, perhaps even rent the 100-400 again. Not sure I would see a notable difference with my current lenses.

You might be surprised. It's like night and day on the 50-140.

forum: Fuji Digital Cameras

With the 100-400 he sharpness falls off after you get to about 340mm, this is magnified when you attach a TC to the lens, I've been a bit frustrated at times when out shooting with it so tend to limit it to 360mm max these days. Don't know if Fuji are planning to update that zoom with their newer optical designs but it could do with it IMO. What was the results for you when you had the lens wider than 300mm (if you did)?
