I decided to get a 5Dsr as i like the idea of a full frame view and be able to crop in and get the 7DmkII Pixel density out of a full frame shot ,this should be handy when tracking a bird in flight as you see so much more around the bird compared to the view a 1.6 crop gives so should help in...
Hope its ok to put this here the space station just flew over Grimsby so I thought I would push my gear to the limit.
It moved far faster than I was expecting I think I could have got 1/500 .

A bit of a poor shot taken near marsh land today
I think either red kite perhapes a young one or male marsh harrier in moult
Although we dont get red kites that often one has been seen in the area .
I email Canon about the F8 update and got this below,so it should be out soon
Thank you for your inquiry about the firmware for the EOS 5D MK III.
The firmware is set to be released this month. An exact date has not been set.
I have a pair of 10x30is and found that my rechargble batteries wont fit there just to tight .
Its the same with the 12x36is i just bought so i measured the batteries that came with them and there's a 1/3 of a mm diffrence between them and the rechargble
The simple fix is to carefully file a...
I was out Birding today out on the Marsh at Grainthorp aprox 3 miles from Donna Nook were the seals are
This guy came down one of the drains that lead into the sea and poped up right in front of me this is just about full frame he was around 15ft away :)
I had a barn owl flying towards me 500mm on my 7d 300mm by my side WHAT shall i use ,will it keep comeing at me shall i put the 300 on .
all this was happerning quickly

A bit of a long shot but my camo bag fell of my motor bike between New Waltham and Louth
it had one of my Gimbals ,some cf cards, flask and folding stool .
If anyone finds it i would be very greatfull to get it back .
Ok iv just bought a pair of 10/30is canon binos very happy with them .
WHY are they so much brighter to look through than my 500f4isL the clarity is far better
is it because not all the light reaches the eye when the lens is on the camera .
i did think about the 12x36 IS but there twice the price and i dont need 12 x And the 10x42 IS L but there twice the price again and as everyone seem's happy with the 10x30 size weight price and how they work i thought well they will do me too :)
if Money was not a isue or lets say they were the same price which would people prefer out of these 2 lenses .
this is aimed more towards UK people as most birds here are very shy
On the one hand you have IS with the Canon
On the other you have a great birding zoom but no IS
just a genral question really.
im not into scoping but wondered if you guys suffer from heat haze i use a 500f4 thats around 10/12 times magnification and if i try to shoot at a long disdance it just hazey.
your scopes are far more powerfull so do you have the same problem.
yep its dead erro 99 i tried quite a few things new card battery's out and back in again sevrel times but just says erro 99
sending it back AGAIN and the AF Canon fixed is still not fixed so they can look at that too.
although iv had some great shots with this camera its the worst camera for...
found this on another forum looks like the mk3 is not up to the job ,i had just ordered one but it will take a couple of month's to arive so hopefully Canon will have fixed it or it will go back.
just to let you all know i bought a 400d from them and all the paperwork is either Deutsch/French/Italiano NOT English
i know how to work the camera so no problems there.
However i just rang them to ask them to send me English paperwork THE best they could do is send me a link to the Manual...
