Finally got out yesterday with some nice weather and shot some birds. I've figured out how to save and embed the exif if anyone wants to look. These were all taken with pentax istds with 50-200mmDA lens. Most are cropped as the reach isn't real long on this lens....cheers.....thekman.

very nice shots, Thekman... i find it's hard to get RWBB's with the right background... either the bird looks okay and the BG is blown, or the background is properlyu exposed and the bird is just a silhouette! another of the limitations of the FZ's... they don't have a very good dynamic range response...

It's not really the fz Squirl. Black birds are tough to get right. I had to use a lot of level adjustment in these to get them looking right. A couple of them were pretty close, but most appeared underexposed and had to be adjusted. Luckily with a dslr, you can get away with it. I've noticed if you try a wide adjustment with the FZ's, the noise quickly starts appearing. When's the new camera arriving?...cheers......thekman.
