I might not be right about this, but I think I like these better than the one you took with the Sony 35mm.

Great photos with the XH-2S and a Nikon 300 F4. May I ask what adapter you used?

Do you know what's going on with that last image? Weird wormy lines between contrasting colors/tones?

Not really sure, just saw them. That was one where I had the camera on a custom setting and it only captured the jpeg, so maybe it came apart during post.

Interesting. Must be some weird compression artifacts.

Got XH2S with 18-55. Testing it as option to replace OM-1 due to temptation and easy availability of fuji 150-600.

How is the AF performance with that combo? Iíve always loved what you get from the 300mm PF packaging for size and weight - I tried this combo very briefly with an X-T3, but was underwhelmed and sold it all. I think the Fringer has seen updates and of course the X-H2S will be more capable so Iím wondering how they perform now?

I have never used it on a Nikon body, but it is hard to imagine it would be much faster. The Fringer does very well at translating the instructions and getting the two brands to work well together.

Personally, thatís not the lens I would test with. I would try the 16-55 as thatís a much better option for seeing what the camera can do.

I went to Nickerson beach on Long Island, NY with the goal of taking photos in the lovely evening light and to push my Fuji X-H2s to it's limits so I know what I can do with it. At the very end of the day I watched photographer after photographer pack up and leave and I kept craning up the ISO. Eventually I reached ISO 12800 and while I was starting to have trouble seeing my subjects, when I looked through the viewfinder I had a nice bright view and easily tracked this Black Skimmer fishing.

I removed noise with Denoise AI and then sharpened a bit with USM which brought back some of the noise and also some lost detail. The amazing thing is the X-H2s was having no problem at all tracking birds in flight or skimming in this very low light.

There was also an American Oystercatcher with the last glow of the sunset behind it.

The top of the image is processed the same as the first yet the bottom has noise removal with Neat Image.

Conclusion: The limit was what I could see, not what the camera could do!

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Spinning Around

I went to the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside NY to photograph the hummingbirds as they have returned. I sat in the most popular spot in the park to photograph them and waiting an hour and a quarter and did not see a single one. Frustrated, I went to the other area where they are seen along with monarch butterflies. Not a single humming bird or monarch! The morning was now getting late yet I decided to walk around the preserve and that was the correct thing to do as I had a wonderful shoot. At the end of my shoot I stopped at the humming bird spot again and it was full of photographers, many of them my friends. As I arrived I spotted a humming bird in a tree over me. I asked if the had seen others and they stated that one was coming in every 15 minutes or so. All the chairs were taken so I set up my tripod next to the chairs and waited while we all chatted about our new cameras. Soon a humming bird arrived, fluttered over the flowers and then went to the feeder. Rather than the usual sound of mirror clack there was the soft sounds of mirrorless cameras going off. Seconds later everyone was looking at there photos. Then we waited another 15 minutes till the next feeding. On the 4th pass I had a good idea what the hummingbird would do and captured the moment it turned from the feeder to fly off. Even at 40 FPS it is reversed in one frame. These two are the first frame and second frame after reversing. Both are huge crops at ISO 1600 so a lot of noise which was easy to remove from the background. I also did some background cleaning.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Damn Morris, very nice! I have never seen a hummingbird in real life and would love to know where to see some in Florida.
