Great shot, however, a little dark viewing on my monitor.
The colours on the heron look amazing.Back at it this morning, I get more impressed every day with the Z9. The following were shot this morning at 500mm, and F4. The series of the Heron is 80 photos using Auto AF with 5 lock-on, 77 of the 80 frames are absolutely tack sharp. Two stills are included below. The Sanderlings are really fast when running around, and, I find the Z9 on Auto AF does a find job. All handheld, between 1/3200-1/4000, ISO 800 F4 on manual. https://streamable.com/au4st4View attachment 30520View attachment 30521View attachment 30522View attachment 30523
So nice. How do you find the files relative to your last camera? LR?Very cold, lakes are frozen over, only have Sanderlings along the shore for subjects at the moment. Taken this morning using Auto AF; more and more I find myself relying on Auto AF and less on 3D for most images, and occasionally using manual focus or Dynamic if the focus falls far off subject.View attachment 30576View attachment 30577View attachment 30578
The background rendition from 2nd till the last one is amazingfew more from the weekend
all with the 600 f4
Still not very in love with the image quality, and feeling that everything above 3200 ISO is compromised and difficult to recover.
Still huge problems with dark birds, especially in low light.
I had a lyrebird, jumped up on a handrail in a bushwalk, 30% of the frame filled by the bird (please don't suggest me to go closer to a wild Lyrebird or you don't know what you are talking about).
One of those things that doesn't happen many times in your life because are very shy birds, bright background, and none of the AF I had selected on my 3 buttons, locked on the subject. I don't mean the eye, but at least the bird. Nothing. Even the single point.
Problem I'm starting to forget comparing with the DSLR, and I'm talking about the d850 that was my last. On the other hand could be good to accept what I have, but I'm having love/hate feelings with this camera.
