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:
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.
