Well I recently got my hands onto a Canon 1DX to use for a short time and the first place I went to give it a run was the wetlands. Not only did I have access to the 1DX, but I also had access to a 400 f/4.
My adoptive sister Jamie was down for a short time, so we got together this past Friday evening to spend some time chatting and taking pictures. The perfect opportunity to take out this temporary new gear for a go.
I have to say, although there is a pretty big learning curve compared to my Canon Mark IIn, I was able to make some setting corrections and had a great time shooting it. I was very pleased with how crisp my shots looked and know this a must have in the future.
I've been going to the wetlands for quite some time and haven't seen any osprey, but of course when I had someone with me one decided to show up with his catch of the day. So I didn't stay in the area long, but did take a few shots, which is the shot of the osprey with the fish.
The following day I headed out to the wetlands once again to try the gear out and wouldn't you know that osprey returned. This time I hung out and ended up with some nice in flight shots of the osprey coming in and taking off.
Love the camera.
