Morning drive through Bombay Hook got me shots of some of my usual subjects but include a new one for me.

1) Female Red-winged Blackbird

5) A first for me. A Juvenile Peregrine Falcon. This guy was perched on a tree while being photographed by myself and about 8 other photographers. He eventually decided to fly somewhere else when I got a series of shots of the Falcon in flight.

A beautiful day for a trip to the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington D.C. Wife really wanted to see the Pandas as well as the Cheetah Cubs that were born at the zoo 12 days ago. Unfortunately, the cubs were inside while we where there but there were plenty of animals to photograph with the Fishing Cat in particular really posing for the camera.

1) Cheetah (Male)


2) Cheetah (Female)


3) Fishing Cat

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

Can you go into more detail about this and how to accomplish it ?

If I understand, you are achieving focus with the center point; and, when the subject moves out from in front of the center point, all other points start tracking, right ?

Are you having to do anything to get this to happen; or, is the camera doing it all for you ?

Thanks.

Over the past year, I've noticed my SS dial becoming less responsive. With over 450K of clicks, I guess the grip on the rubber has loosened.

Have a wedding on Saturday, so figured I'd better do something about it. Found this article https://martybugs.net …Dial-On-A-Canon-DSLR.html (external link) waiting on the glue, so will report back once I've applied the fix..


Thanks so much for finding and posting this.

One of our cameras, it happens so infrequently that I can't remember which, has this thing going on where sometimes the first roll of the wheel has no response and the next roll works; maybe I am subconsciously applying a bit more pressure after it fails to do anything and that extra pressure makes it grab.

After learning of this, I am going to make note of which camera it is that is doing this and see if a good cleaning will cure the problem.

I read through the comments and, instead of using an adhesive, I intend to clean the groove with 91% alcohol and a Q-Tip.

The cleaning makes sense as oil from the finger has probably migrated into the groove and is causing the slippage.

It's been a fun ride guys! I just covered 2 days Ballroom and Latin, with a X-T4 with Finger EF-FX Pro II adapter using my Sigma 70-200 and 50-100. I'm going through all the shots now, so clean, so crisp. If you're thinking about your next crop camera body, I'd go with the X-T4 all day long :D

I'll still drop by from time to time and post some of my old photos taken with the 7D2 :)

Yes, the center point starts the tracking and then it will follow. I will have to go back and check my settings (unless someone else chimes in) as I have been using the R6 for the last 6 months much more than my 7DII

Just seeing a Grouse that has not already exploded into a fast moving blur and gone is quite an accomplishment; catching a photo of one on the ground and going about his business is really an achievement.

I have spent countless hours horseback in grouse country and the only grouse I have ever seen make a solid horse near jump out of his skin when they blast out from under his feet.

I don't ever remember seeing one that wasn't already headed out of the country.

I’ve had the 150-600C --- it’s firmware is not up to date, so that’s a win as it will AF with my 1.4X III extender.

So, if one updates the firmware, they lose the ability to autofocus with an extender ? ; that seems like a downgrade instead of an update; but then, that's what most updates tend to be.

Thanks for all the recent likes. I haven't posted much in this thread lately. The tamron 150-600 G2 is welded to my 7D2. Not the best setup in the close quarters of walking trails. Most of my walking has been with my T3i and the 70-300L. Trying to cut some weight but 300 tends to be too short. Need to revisit the 7D2 and maybe the 100-400 for a somewhat more compact set up compared to the tamron.

Yeah, grouse can startle you for sure. Where I live it is not uncommon to encounter them just about anywhere, particularly in the fall. I don't think I've managed to catch one explode from the ground yet. They can disappear into the trees before you can lift the camera up.

Those make the Ugly Duckling look like a princess.

Thanks for capturing and sharing these; they are the first I have ever laid my eyes on.

Very nice photos.

I'd really have to look at several other images to have an opinion. In the photo you posted, you were using a 2X TC. Honestly, I've never been really thrilled with the 2X TC. I much prefer to use the 1.4 TC.

Here is a quick and easy test to determine if a serious micro adjustment test is required. I set these 5 AA batteries about 2 inches apart, shot them with my 1DX II (100-400 mm Canon zoom lens) at about a 45 degree angle, with the aperture wide open. I focused on the center (X) battery. From this photo, it appears as though I took the photo straight on, but I did not. Like I mentioned, it was shot at approximately a 45 degree angle. Notice that the X battery does appear to be the sharpest sharpest of the five. Those batteries to the left and the right (front and back) of the center are equally out of focus. This quick test immediately tells me that that I am not having front or back focusing issues, and it's not necessary to do an elaborate micro adjusting test.

Thank you so much for this; I am going to start using batteries for my focus testing from now on = much better than the various other methods I have employed.
