p.1 #1 · Juvenile BO's and the role of equipment in bird photography


Congratulations to speedmaster20d for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 9 votes - View Previous Winners


This is another BO image (both juvenile).

1DX 600 II + 1.4X III f/5.6 1/3200sec ISO 2000 handhold.

To see how this image and a similar image was created see my blog entry where I also shared my view about the role of equipment in bird photography after a recent discussion.

I hope you find it useful

Great shot Arash. The blog post was also informative, especially how you worked up that owl shot. Thanks for sharing.

Question

If a 600 w 1.4 and 1dx is lightweight, what is heavyweight ?

An 8 x 10 view camera ?

Not trying to be cute. Serious question

It is lightweight compared to the old Canon 600mm f/4 IS MKI lens and also compared to the only competitor on the market which is the Nikon 600mm f/4 VR.

With proper technique and practice, most people in good health can handhold a super-telephoto rig like this one. I personally handhold this lens all the time day in and day out with no issues. It was difficult for me to handhold the old 600mm for more than hour in the field. So it was a big improvement for me.

Best regards

Super photo and I agree with you Ari. I regularly prove that you don't need the latest and greatest to capture great photos. What great gear will do is increase your odds of capturing a great photo if and almost exclusively if you know how to use it.

Well done Ari. I do own the competition lens as you speak of, the Nikon 600mm VR II. If I wasn't already a Nikon shooter before I got into wildlife photography, Canon would have been the clear choice for me right off the bat. I wasn't going to change systems, though, because Nikon has done so well for me in my storm photography (the total opposite end, ultra wide angle). I think Nikon has a slight edge over Canon in the ultra-wide optics, but that's a discussion for the Canon/Nikon boards. Anyway, the 3 pounds of weight difference is huge. Nevertheless, most of my shoots I'm sitting in cover for several hours waiting for the action to occur with my 11.1 pound monstrosity on a Wimberley II
