Canada geese (long focal test)

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Frits, Apr 25, 2007.

  1. The migration of Canada geese is in full swing.
    Early this morning I went and check out the action. I basically wanted to try out the combination of my Ai-S 300mm f/2.8 with the TC-201 (2 X) converter. I was forced to shoot at 400ISO, since there was little light. These were all shot from quite a distance. I am anxious to shoot some more with this combination a bit closer up and with good light - looks very promising!
    BTW, manual focusing of in flight geese with this combination is a handful, phewww:eek:  but lots of fun...

    All: D2x. Nikkor Ai-S 300mm f/2.8 with TC-201 (2X) - wide open.

    Pretty good combo there Frits. I can't imagine trying to shoot BIF using manual focus though. :Shocked:

    Good job. :smile:
  6. Frits, I especially like # 2. Thanks for sharing....

  7. Great series with 2&3 are killers
  8. I fully understand the manual focus/BIF thing... Nice shots!
