Focal Length

May 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I suppose I must finally be developing some good long lens technique. Today after an unsuccessful attempt at taking Kingfisher photographs from a busy hide, I cut my losses and went to find some small birds. The 800mm rules supreme here, and with a 1.4x converter attached gives a stonking 1120mm of focal length, which including my camera's crop factor, works out at something like 1450mm. That's a lot of length able to wobble, but I reckon I'm getting the hang of it. The following images were all taken at this focal length, and at around 1/800s as the light wasn't all that. I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the resulting sharpness. Full Wimberley used to give me the best possible chance!
