p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Porcupine, Elk, Black Bear in Banff Park


Here are my other favorites from my trip to the Park yesterday. Porcupine at Moraine Lake, Elk on Bow Valley Parkway, and Black Bear near Bow Lake.

The black bear was exciting because we managed to get midway between the car and the mom and the baby. I was just figuring out whether I could outrun Dan, when the baby headed for mom.

Comments and feedback is appreciated.

Surfnron: Glad you like the selection. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Rob Tillyer: I have concluded that porcupine are difficult. This one only stopped briefly before scurrying off leaving me with a iso 6400 shot. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Cool shots, Scott. The only porcupine I have seen was the quills that one left in my German Shepherd's nose and mouth.

From web-size shots, the 5DMk3 does not look any better than the 7D. IMO

Imagemaster: I think the 5dii is a stop better than 7d and the 5diii is a stop better than 5dii at really high ISO (6400) but comparable at lower ISO (3200 and lower). I did some testing and confirmed this to myself. If you look at the first picture it is at 6400 ISO. I doubt the 7d would be usable at this ISO. The real question i have is whether the reach lost is worth the quality gain. Below 3200iSO, I woudl use the 7d. >= 3200ISO I prefer the 5dii. I have concluded that the 5diii is a significant improvement to 5dii and has changed my default drive around lens from 7d in good light with 5dii as low light - to 5dii on my 500 as default and 7d when I need the reach. The fps, focus, wider auto-iso, are better than the 7d. The 7d is very good in good light but I use it for reach.

Glad you like the porcupine. The grizzly I shot had a run in with a porcupine and learned just like your German Shepherd. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

harland: Porcupines are tough. They are too cautious, dark, and like to turn their tail toward you. Glad you like them. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


tfoltz: Glad you like the cropping/composition. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott
