Super awesome! More details please… Did you use tracking for those shots? Did you change the acceleration and stickiness settings?

Focus mode is Wide Area, bird detect, default settings for acceleration and stickiness.

I use Spot XS with tracking as second back focus button (Start Movie button) for bird in bush situations where Wide Area won't find the eye behind branches. Not used for any of the above.


If you look carefully you can see the focus switch from the bird to the spider - maybe I had insect detect on by mistake ! Just kidding, but focus will tend to prioritise foreground objects - which is fine by me because it helps with acquisition against busy backgrounds.

These re reposts from Nature and Wildlife.

Not all frames included in the sequence below - you can even see the spiders legs moving !

Rather cool I though - amazing what you come across in 10,000+ images :



















Picking one is a real problem !

Might be easier to get into video...

I believe that the A9III does support shooting in HEIF file format, and LR can work with them. It is a much better file than a JPEG. Not quite RAW but still pretty good.

I believe LR got support same day as ACR, already in December. No need for HEIF.

It would be nice if some of the people with early deliveries of the A9III would provide Bill Claff the files he needs to update the PhotonstoPhotos site with some reliable quantitative data.

Happy to provide files, tell him to contact me.

In the meantime more craziness - I had pretty much given up on these parrots with the A1, they're small, fast and don't fly much and stay low when they do. We walk past them daily (we being the dog and I) but had long since stopped bothering to bring the A1.

No problem for the A93 though, ignoring the two days it took to actually see them in the air - I only got them in the frame for 1.1 second, but that was plenty ! Just wish I had taken the 200-600 along instead of the 100-400, as it's just a bit too much of a crop for my liking. Something for tomorrow I guess...

Bear in mind the entire sequence below is 0.6 seconds (last 75 frames of 131) - so I had no real idea I had caught the bird in the frame and certainly no recollection of seeing any wide open wings. As far as I can tell every single one appears to have nailed the focus. I wasn't using a very high shutter speed as the sun was all but gone and there doesn't appear to be any sign of motion blur either - something I have noticed previously. Perhaps more forgiveness with the lower resolution.

The A1 now feels like the A9 used to feel, sluggish.

my 1st test run on a9iii @ a local street basketball competition. AF, pre-capture, 120fps is very addictive. C1 Pro a9iii support come @ the right time yesterday. Looking forward to the weekend WTP doing some swallow test. Cons: battery life and buffer, maybe is time we see SSD in mirrorless cameras. Cant wait for a1ii.

Already supported in Adobe Photoshop / Adobe Camera RAW - first preordered camera I've bought where support was already in the software. I even had it installed before the camera arrived! That's after at least six pre-orders.

It was a delightful surprise.

HEIF is much more akin to JPEG than RAW. When you choose file formats you can choose RAW + JPEG or RAW + HEIF. It's 10 bit, though.
