Sure. I am no good at estimating the distance though.

The close-up shot of the curlew and one of the gull pics were taken with v1 at around 15m

Others were a bit farther at 20-30m

Not sure if that's the real distance though.

Nice. I'll have to get my Nikon 35/1.8 out in the field.

Hello ! I am essentially new to the form also. I have a Vortex Razor scope and have tried a Fuji the X10 ! It won't work. I love Fuji cameras, so I am thinking of getting the X100S but I don't know if it will work ? Is that lens too wide I guess is what I'm trying to find out ?

Werner,
Regarding the woodpeckeer and "full frame," was this shot with a full frame camera? Beautiful images, BTW!

Made with the X-T1.
Fullframe means without cut only scaled down to 1300x867 pxs.

one more woodpecker attached.

Gotcha, in other words " not cropped." Thanks and enjoyed the second one as well. So any sharpening done on the jpegs, or is that essentially straight out of the camera?

Sharpening parameter in the camera is neutral. Thanks.

Werner,
Regarding your set-up, are you happy with the current head you have on your tripod? If not is there another you think might be better suited to your combination of scope and camera? Thanks and BTW you are killing me with these pictures. Everyone seems better than the last.

Thanks Frank. The gitzo 2380 is o.k. for me. Perhaps the Gitzo 2180 is more compact and lower an surely also a good decision.

Here a link:

http://www.gitzo.com/fluid-head-g2180

I think it should be a fluid head.

What about your Fuji?

Werner,
Thanks for your reply. I am currently not a Fuji owner, (have a Nikon V1) but your pictures really are something to behold. I have a Kowa scope but your Swaro scope seems to be considered the best available and am quite tempted by it and the Fuji XT-1. Not sure if I will take the plunge but the results you are getting makes it hard not to.
Frank
