One of my first attemps at using the 6T on something that moves. Fortunately this subject didn't for quite some time.

Happy days,
smac

Beautiful. Now I'm really suffering from 6T envy.
Well done.

Very nice butterfly shot smac...sharp and great colors. I'll be glad when they return here. My son just bought a 6T for his FZ20 and he loves it. I look forward to more. Woody

Thank you everyone,

I just learned that the butterfly in the pictures is an Acman Blue. Apparently a Northern Mexico butterfly. I'd never heard of it but it sure was pretty.

Thanks again,
smac

Gorgeous shot, smac. I have the Nikon 4t (same thing on 52 mm thread) and it has been tough for me to use it since it seems to work only at one exact distance, rather than being able to use the auto-focus within a certain range. For close-ups of moving objects this is particularly tough. What's your advise?

Hmmm, Advise..... Well, since I am relatively new to the 6T myself I was going by what some one else suggested. I have been shooting most of my shots at 12X zoom and using the manual assist to get my focus in the ball park. The prime focus is about 12inches (30cm) at 12X. It's tougher on the tripod because you can't easily move the camera if you are out of the DOF range. It's a little easier if you are hand holding but then you have to have enough light to get the shutter speed up so the picture is sharp. I was laying on my belly in the field trying to get this shot of the butterfly. I was lucky in that it didn't seem in much of a hurry to move on. So, I just kept shooting (about 50 pictures of this butterfly) until it did move on. After I had the DOF and focus set, I just zoomed in and out to change the framing of the butterfly. Good luck and I hope you can find a cooperative subject to practice on.

All the best,
smac
