Sony A7r4 200-600 + 1.4 extender

Any tells you that the A7r4 is not a birding camera then tell them they have got it wrong, I am a wildlife photographer of 10 years using Canon, Nikon, Panasonic APS-C Micro Four Thirds, and now Full Frame.

The Sony A7r4 is the best camera i have had the pleasure to use it makes photography fun again and so enjoyable. The keeper rate is just bind blowing and when you come home i am spoilt for choice which image to pick from.

Even when i put the 1.4 extender on i was hitting 8 out of ten in focus. The bird is not an Eagle or Osprey against a blue sky, it is a small bird flying at high speed across water with glare. So take a look at this Turnstone with the extender on.

I turned up took about 100 images and came back in 40 mins over the moon with the results of this fantastic combination.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
