Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

On Friday afternoon I enjoyed some more cloudy weather and before my walk and again had a few good chances with one of the local Ospreys.  I have been trying to use ISO 8oo more with my 50D to check out the noise.   I am finding that the noise is best controlled by pushing the histogram as far right as possible (as I did here).

This Osprey was photographed with the handheld 400mm f/4 IS DO lens and the EOS-50D. ISO 800. Evalautive metering +2 stops off the sky: 1/2500 sec. at f/4 in Manual Mode.

If you have previously been viewing distorted images, please let me know if this one looks OK.  We are working on it <smile>.

I went out a bit this morning as the sun attempted to break through the clouds.  I saw a flock of Wild Turkeys with two big toms displaying but they were in a horrific spot with cars and sheds in the BKGR so I drove away and scouted a bit.  When I returned, they were in much better position.

This image was created with the Canon 70-200mmm f/4L IS lens handheld at 135mm. ISO 800. Evaluative metering at zero: 1/1600 sec. at f/4 in Av Mode.

Tomorrow, by popular demand, I will be sharing the details of how I set up my Canon EOS-50D camera bodies.  See you then.

    I’m using Firefox on Linux CentOS. Works fine, starting the image
    of the Turkey. Previously distorted.

  • Thanks Elinor. I think that I have the distortion problem fixed thanks to David Kennedy. Now we have to find a way to make the images larger before we adapt a new theme (template).

  • Images were distorted on Safari before but are fine in this post. Seems as if bugs keep appearing just to keep us busy.
