Good Afternoon,

This is a cross-post from Adapted Lenses:

I decided to try out my new-to-me Metabones EF to MTF adapter, starting with the M1.1, and found out quickly BIF with C-AF is a lost cause. The adapter is spot-on in S-AF with the Canon EF glass, which I'm happy about, for portraits, still life and landscape. Going to try perched birds and "slow movers" over the next few weeks. Anyway, while kayaking last evening, I captured a lone Osprey with the M1.1 and an EF200mm f2.8L up front; it was heading out with dinner...these are very heavy crops. This also gives the humbling experience of how good a photographer that "atomicmak" and others on this thread are at their craft....:drinks:

Regards,

Edd

This morning before breakfast I decided to explore the Magnolia Plantation in the area where I live. Finally after many weeks I found that bird i have been looking for:
Barred Owl. On the first photo it's the mom. She just came back from hunting. On the second you see her chick swallowing a frog its mother just brought.
It was very challanging to get them behind all the branches and leaves. My AF was really fighting...my equipment is really old probably too old. Also the light conditions were everything but not perfect.
The third photo shows the chick after the meal. Looks hungry again ;-)

A question for you BIF shooters. How do you set your exposure metering, or do you manually select an ISO? I'm trying to set my custom dial to BIF mode, and I wasn't sure if Auto ISO was the way to go or not. I usually don't use auto, but I thought it might be more necessary for moving subjects.
I shoot primarily on Manual mode and use Auto ISO ranging Auto to 6400. I think I will want to change it to be from 200-6400 kudos to Mital post.
I use ESP metering. I would fix the metering in PP. I know it isn't the same, but it is good enough for me :)
I also use SS or Aperture to adjust the exposures and agreed with Mital about needing to adjust EV when bird are against the sky. Otherwise, I always end up with lots of dark images!!

On yesterdays photo hike, I watched this Great Blue Heron catch a rather large fish. I thought "no way" can it swallow that - I was wrong ... no problem.

I just wanted to share some of my friend Curtis's recent BIF photos. He used an EM1X w/40-150 Pro+MC-14. I can't download them to post here, so you'll have to go to his Flickr albums. It's worth it, I guarantee.

After a year of patiently looking for them, he finally got some great captures of the red-tailed tropic birds at Halona Blowhole. His persistence was rewarded and he got some great shots.

He also went to Kahuku Point and got some albatrosses and a chick. I went there this past weekend, but saw only one adult. They are Laysan albatrosses. There are even more at Kaena Point. Seabird conservationists have been working for decades to get the albatrosses to nest in the main Hawaiian Islands, and as you can see, they have succeeded in establishing nesting colonies. They were formerly only found in the largely uninhabited Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, but those mainly low islands are under threat by rising seas due to climate change. These birds are near threatened species.

Here's one of my not as good albatross shots. I only saw one adult flying and it came and went so quickly, I only got a few grab shots. I'm pretty sure this is a Laysan albatross.
