These shot at the High Sensitivity setting. Which drops MP to 3, and JPEG quality to standard, and does auto ISO from 1600 to 6400. No claims for quality, but without that setting these would be a black screen.

Full zoom or close to it, in camera flash only, so dark only the fact that I know where my bird feeder is allowed the shots to happen. 30 feet from where I sat on the steps to the target, which I could not see. I am quite pleased.

ISO 1600


ISO 2000


A young Wigeon just to throw a little color in the post.

The owl photos are a good example of the HS mode......but after seeing the results did you try just using 800 or so in normal mode.

I did not try 800. I will need another visit from the bird for that. I did try 400 and it was black. I am hoping this guy hangs around awhile. Thanks for comment.

Update for Gene. I did not want to blind the owl unduley but I went out and took a few ISO 800 shots of the pole he was on and the the birdfeeder hanging on it. Totally worthless at that distance with camera flash. In one picture I can strain and see shape of pole a bit, but only because of that white door back there and I know what I am looking for. The bird feeder is dirty plasic but slightly reflective and I can find the shape slightly but even with post processing I exceeded the limits using tht ISO. Which is a shame actually as it was a good thought you had and it would have been great if it worked.

Nice capture of the Widgeon. Surprised you were able to get the owl shot.
