decided to go home on the road by the local high school and look who I ran into... This is taken at 400iso at 1/160th sec. out of my car window. Shoulda pushed the iso more cause there is slight motion blur. Wish I had brought my flash and better beamer. All I had was the H and the ol 300 f4 with 1.4x on. Shoulda taken that off for an extra stop: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/160s    ISO 400 Date/Time 28-Jul-2005 18:34:14 Make Nikon Model NIKON D2H Flash Used No Focal Length 420 mm Exposure Time 1/160 sec Aperture f/5.6 ISO Equivalent 400 Exposure Bias -2/3 White Balance (4) Metering Mode matrix (5) JPEG Quality (6) Exposure Program aperture priority (3) here's an earlier photo for those that havent seen it in younger days on 3/13/05, just about 4.5 months ago: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/7.1    1/800s    ISO 250 my how he's grown. You can see the red starting on the head. there was a cluster of 8-10 in one of the retention ponds, and once again, I didnt push the iso high enough, no monopod but sort of a neat full frame shot: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/80s    ISO 400 hows this for 1/80th second handheld at 420mm?
