From Near to Infinity starring………

my new friend, the Canon SX50 HS.

I decided this morning to test the camera a little more rigorously. As luck would have it the first Common Buzzard of the autumn flew over out garden so I had a go at a BIF shot (Bird in Flight to the uninitiated). And here it is, viewed through the beer glass viewfinder, zoomed as far out as I could without losing it and shot in Burst Mode.

And yes it is cropped.

But after doing it’s Hubble job on a BIF I decided to see if it could do an IIF or Insect in Flight. I just made that up 🙂

And here it is again:

The second insect effort was not quite so impressive and this one was not even in flight:

Chrysomya sp.

So I tried something easier – the Frangipani tree, complete with the dreaded Frangipani rust spots visible:

And finally, as we absolutely have to have B&W, an arty farty shot of some seed heads that reminded me of fireworks:

So there we are. Another round of rigorous exercise for the SuperZoom. My favourite is Dideopsis aegrotus, the hover fly. But the bizzard was quite a surprise. If the bird had been 500m lower it would have been quite photographable. Now if only Canon would fix my under warranty Speedlight.

  1. I agree with the other posters; the black and white is really splendid, but as usual I like your macro work quite a lot…really well done on both! Looking forward to seeing how you like the RAW capability of this camera.

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
