I can't imagine any way this shot could be improved. Absolutely awesome.

I agree, it is an awesome photo. The only thing that bothers me is the tilt of the pole. Maybe, that is how the pole really is but I would have straightened in post processing, the vertical sides that is. Maybe, I'm just being nitpicky on awesome photo.

That's interesting Doc, thanks. Never even considered it, actually. I'll have another look at it when I get a chance.

Guess I'm getting older, and don't think about a straight pole as much as I used to ? ;-)a

I'm finding the noise in the shadows at iso 400 seems to be worse than the original 7D and in some cases, almost unusable.

I've never attempted, or beein interested in, shooting birds in all my years of photography so I am a complete novice in this area. Most of what I've been trying to shoot, have been in dense undergrowth, but I have tried my hand at a few BIFs impulsively as they flew over, without thinking, and I failed miserably, finding that although I nailed a couple (focus wise) the birds were underexposed,. I'd welcome any advice..........is spot metering the go here or shooting to the right?

I guess it is just me and all the sports photos I shoot. It has been drilled into my head that one of the first things you look at when you process a sports photo is to make sure you have the horizon straight. So, if I look at any other photo that is one of the things I look at.

No biggy. It is a great capture. A whole lot better than what I've been able to accomplish shooting birds.

I am far from an expert myself but will share my thoughts for BIF.

Spot metering is a no no as far as I am concerned, you will be exposing for such a small area that your chances of hitting the bird will be diminished greatly.

Use centre weighted average myself and dial in positive exposure compensation, up to 3 stops depending on conditions, although typically in the 1 to 2 range. Using this method gives you a greater chance of exposing the bird at least near on correctly. The downside is risking washing out or indeed blowing your sky.

You will find you'll get much cleaner results in post recovering the sky than pushing the bird.

Really dumb question but I could not figure it out: if I use two memory cards and in playback mode how can I switch cards? From the moment the first card is full and I start to use the second one the playback is displaying only the pics recorded on the second card.

Press the Q button this should bring up the Shooting functions menu and enable Quick Control of the shooting functions, scroll down to highlight the cards icon with the joystick, then use the main dial to switch to select the card you want to view.
Hope this helps

That Q button is slick. I never liked it's position on my 7Dc but Canon placed it in the same location as my 5D3.

If Canon offered that focus mode lever (I don't know it's name - no manual with me) for my 5D3 I'd spend the money for it. When I let my wife or my friend use it I have go through the single point explanation so I found it is just easier to set it to all points. It's takes a few seconnds to figure it out becasue I rarely change but the 7D2 makes that so much easier. Big plus for that one.

My freind unfortunately owns a Nikon  :p and it is on all focus points all the time. Last time we travelled and I switched to all points I was quite surprised at how well it isolated tthe closest object. Since it is easier to switch on the 7D2 I have been playing around more with all the focus modes.

The only thing I still think that is missing on all camera's is a button, that you can comfortably reach and program so you can toggle between one shot and AI servo without holding it. I know I can do it in 2 moves but I would prefer a 1 move method.

That's one of the reasons I like BBF. I would be nice to be able to push the button and not have to hold it in.
