Just testing

I'm at the moment testing my new camera, a Canon 7D. During this process I among other things tried out the burst speed of the camera (8 pic./ sec). It worked very well, but at the same time I also tried the autofocus modes, auto ISO and a couple of other things. Birds are perfect for this and the burst worked as it should, but the auto IS0 gave me a too low aperture and I thus also missed a bit on the autofocus. The shutter speed was 1/1000. The photo also became underexposed, noisy and slightly out of focus. When it in addition was shot in jpg there was not much I could do and it was on the way to the bin. However, I liked the position of the bird - so here it is.

Veldig fin plassering av måken, og fargene rundt sitter som bare det. Snakk om å fange full strekk av vingene :) Gøy å legge ut på ekspedisjon med nytt utstyr, gratulerer med nytt kamera hvis jeg ikke allerede har sagt det. :)

Fortsatt fin helg Rune!

I wish my good shots were as brilliant as this "bad" shot of yours. Although the photo does not enlarge, I see it focused on the eye of the bird, and that seems pretty good to me; but then I am not a pro. And on my screen it does not look underexposed at all. Overall, it's a delightful photo.

Grattis Rune, heldige du som har et nytt leketøy mellom fingrene. Bursdag og julaften på en og samme tid :-) Er nok i tenkeboksen jeg også, men sparegrisen grynter ennå fornøyd mens han venter på at kjærringa skal ta ett valg. Vanskelig synes jeg faktisk, men det er vel nok fagfolk der ute å spørre om råds.

Skal si du her har fanget akkurat likevektspunktet på en måte, et vakkert og fantastisk bilde, og undereksponeringen, ja den liker jeg da vettu.

Flott lørdag til deg :-)

I can't see all the technical things you're talking about...just saw this capture of a split moment in time...such a supreme picture of taking off...:)

Truffet her. Og 7D-en til canon har jo fått skryt og så...
Gratulerer! Ha en fortsatt flott og eksperimentell lørdagskveld med instruksjonsbok og kamerameny!!

Looks like you're off to a good start with the new camera.

Paulie said...

Yes, that is great action! Enjoy your new camera. I just got myself a new one also. I hope I have better luck with this kind.

Grattis med nytt kamera! Syns du har fanget måken i en artig posisjon ... akkurat som om den prøver se hvor langt den kan helle utover før den faller i vannet :o)

Håper du får en flott fotosøndag!

You caught the right time of the departure!the best moment of any travel, according to me:)
The picture is maybe not perfect, but the movement is!

Gratulerer med nytt kamera - og hvilket kamera! :) Noen hakk mer avansert enn mitt nye ja....

Den måka har du ihvertfall fanga bra!
"Yeeeah - take off"!

I think it is a super shot and I wouldn't have thought it had any imperfections if you hadn't said so.

Fuglen tok absolutt hele min oppmerksomhet her,der den står og strekker på hele seg,ser det ut som.Et herlig bilde:)

Petra said...

On its way to a bin? No way! :-) Some photos are not technically perfect but they have a flair and this is such a one. I love the dignified expression of the bird on the verge of either falling down or starting to fly... Wonderful. :-)

Hi Rune! Congratulations with your new camera! I wished I had the knowledge about photografy you have!

What a fabulous test...

Dina said...

Enjoy your new camera!
I don't understand all the photography language here, but I do just simply enjoy the bird you captured.
