Had a change today and looked at the tide times as lots of waders feed on the insects and other stuff that gets washed up as the sea comes in.
I decided as it was sunny I would give the 200-600 and 1.4 extender a go at birds in flight. The settings I used are
- ISO 800
- 1/2000 Shutter
- Multi Metering
- Zone Focus
The Egret was staying at distance but I tried a couple of shots using centre focus area, then I switched to Zone. The reach from the 200-600 with the 1.4 extender and having the ability to crop and still get great images is so pleasing.
When the Egret took off the A7r4 200-600 didn’t miss one image all were in focus two bursts of 10.
