Last week, I experimented with the OIS app on my iPad to capture birds at the feeder. Once I figured that out, it was time to add a branch and make things more natural. I also rented a Panasonic 100-300 for the weekend. These are at 150mm on a tripod with all image stabilization turned off. Focusing is done remotely, and the app is great in that it also lets you change ISO, white balance, etc. all from the iPad without walking up to the camera.

Whoa! For a minute there I thought the birds were messing with your remote.
Great shots.

Don't be silly. Birds would need a wired remote. iPads do not respond to pecks! :biggrin:

All kidding aside, these are great photos, and now that I have a camera body with wifi, I plan on trying something similar in our back yard. Our house makes a good bird blind.

Those shots are great. You must be very happy with them. Now I need to try it out myself.
