Shot at the Muriwai Gannet Colony, just outside Auckland City, NZ. With a walk of only about 400m from the car park, it has to be the most accessible gannet colony in the world!

These birds really motor with the wind behind them, but the tracking system of the 7DII really helps.

Nice! What tracking settings do you use? Also, do you use one of the larger focusing groups?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Some people have claimed the 7D2 is a "light hog".

They still haven't convinced me :-)

I just figured out how to set the initial center point and then use all of the points as it tracks in Servo. One of the guys at the local camera store set it for me. I had not been doing it that way. I have not tried it with BIF yet, but did use it for a couple of basketball games. Worked well in the open court but if it got too crowded, it would confuse the AF

I want to learn how to do that...back to the manual...case 5 or case 6 autofocus are starting points.

I need to try some of the other AF cases. I actually did not really catch how he set the center point to be the starting point when I was in the store. I should have asked him to show me again. But it is nice, get it on the first time and keep the shutter 1/2 pressed and it will follow the subject around the frame using all the AF points.

Just goes to show me how little of the technology of this camera I was using.

Morning hike through a forest trail at a nearby millpond was largely uneventful until I happened upon a group of American Robins foraging on the forest floor and in the brush.

Same here. I like the R5 images, but I'm a long way from being limited by the 7D2.
