Re: Auto Focus for Birds in Flight


I use(d) a 7D and now the 5DIII with either the 100-400 or 400 5.6 and find these effective for BIF. I recently purchased a blind and have been practicing using it for birds in my backyard. When I'm in the blind or on other occasions when not mobile, I made a bean bag that attaches to a tripod and use this. It provides some of the stability of the tripod (and arm relief) for stable objects and allows easily following a bird that takes off. The bean bag also helps alot when using extenders.

Either a 500 f4 or a 300 F2.8 is on my wish list for a future purchase.

Thanks
Steven
