I couldn’t resist to share this lineated barbet ruffling its feathers.
Head image: Lineated Barbet, image created in Singapore Juron Bird Park on January 25th, 2015. Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II at 234mm. ISO 1000, f/5, 1/400s, Evaluative metering
While not the best image of the subject (a captive at the Jurong Bird Park) I really like the posture of the bird. I shoot it half a dozen time before it changed position but I couldn’t get a very good eye contact and that one is the best of the set
This is an image from my early test of the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II, a typical example of relatively low light situation of tropical shoot I am quite happy with both the noise behavior of the new camera and the auto-focus performance. I was spoiled with the 1D series camera and their high speed, but still 10 fps on the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a very satisfying feeling! Of course that means having a large memory card because at about 30MB per image you can fill the card pretty quickly…
