Lady Cardinal
Posted By: fwwidall, 07-06-2018, 10:55 AM

I was practicing with "catch in" focus this morning. I set up my K3 with DA*300mm on a tripod, set the lens to 'MF', and hooked up a wired remote. Focused the lens and locked the remote. I came back an hour later and had images of four birds. I thought this cardinal shot came out real nice.

You are right, this photo came out really nice! Really good detail in the feathers, eye and beak.

Beautiful shot! Strangely, I've never tried the "catch-in-focus" feature of my K-50 or K-30. You inspire me to give it a try.

Yes, it is cropped. I was shooting in landscape mode, and the cardinal was taking up approx. 2/3rds of the vertical. I was shooting the 300mm from approx. 4m away.

Its a useful feature. I was hoping to shoot some hummingbirds but have yet to see any at my feeder, so I aimed where the other birds were alighting instead. She's almost as pretty as a 'hummer'.
