Incredible photo at such high ISO and SOOC, and a gorgeous owl to boot!

Thank you. I am amazed at what the R6 can do. That was a JPEG file with no sharpening or noise reduction in post

Hello R6 owners.

I have secured an opportunity to stay on an island for 2 days that will have about 40,000 puffins next month. I have been before a couple of times for a day trip and on both occasions I pretty much only used my Canon 100-400mm II lens which served me very well.

As a treat I was considering hiring a lens specially for this trip and wanted any suggestions on something better than the 100-400. I don't want to hire anything really silly that is worth 10,000 pounds but thought perhaps there may be a lens that will offer me more than the 100-400? Perhaps the RF 100-500 would offer me a little bit extra - would I notice much difference?

Another alternative is hiring a Canon R5.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Paul

Hi, Paul. It’s good to see you posting again.

I never shot with the 100-400II so I can’t compare but the RF 100-500 is an amazing lens. AF is quick, it’s lightweight and images are razor sharp with great detail and nice colour rendition. And it also takes the RF 1.4x extender very well, there’s no loss of IQ that I can see. That lens has been a game changer for me on the R6. I haven’t used my EF 400/5.6L lens once since buying it and that prime has been my main birding lens for 10 years! The RF 100-500 is just too good. So yes, I would hire the RF 100-500. And if you don’t already have the RF 1.4x extender, hire that too as 700mm is awfully nice to have.

The downside of that is that after using it, you will want to buy it. :-D

Have a great time with the puffins!

Hi Levina
Yes, sorry I haven't posted much lately - I have been very busy with work but hoping to start posting more now that things have gone quieter.
Oh the RF 100-500 sounds fabulous - I know I will want one after hiring one. If I didn't have to replace my car I would snap one up in a blink of an eye for sure.
Thanks for the tip. I will definitely hire this for the Puffins.
Thanks
Paul

The adapter showed up. And WOW. There’s a bit of a learning curve here coming from a DSLR. Just getting used to shooting differently. Got it set up with dual back button focus but I can’t figure how to tap a focus point on screen and then use back button to stay on that point.

Enjoying it so far now? I believe if you are in face and tracking and tap on something it should keep a box on there and track from there! Although make sure to adjust your Servo Case to something like Case 2 which is meant to stick to the subject.

Loving this camera so far. I figured out my focus point issue pretty quickly - Wasn't using the Focus Point button to select a focus point.

Using the AF On for doing Face Tracking AF and using * for Standard AF which is set to AF Expanded.

No,No,No. My lens switch is on AF. I can manual focus also. I do it all the time, as needed.

Yes, but you have detached AF from the shutter button, which allows MF. My point is that if you do have the camera set to initiate AF from the shutter button, some lenses will allow override, and others will not. The RF800/11 is a lens that does not allow override, unless you detach the AF from the shutter button. That is true even if no buttons are pressed at all.

Yes, exactly. The 800/11 does not have full time manual with the shutter button set to AF. The 100-500 however does.

By the way, I tried out what it says in the manual. I mounted the 800/11 to the R6, set the camera to One Shot, pressed the shutter button halfway to autofocus and sure enough, after that I could focus manually. Problem is I'm never in One Shot mode.

Okay, I'll join in the bird showcase. I was desperate to try editing some pictures on my new computer. So took some tweety birds busy building.

Got my camera all set up and everything. Using dual SD cards. However, it looks like the camera is duplicating each image on one card. When I went to import into Lightroom, there were duplicates of every image. And I'm not exactly sure what I should do to fix that.

Also, here's the first couple of images from my new camera. The dog is my best friend's. The kitten is mine.

Could it be a setting in the wrench menu #1?

Do you have it set up to shoot RAW + JPEG? That would give you two of the same image one RAW and one JPEG.

Just something to check out.
