Default My first t/con shots...

hi all,
i finally found time and the right weather to get out with my fz100 and newly purchased teleconverter. i went to a local lake and as luck would have it there were a new family of ducklings there. gorgeous weather meant a couple of good hours snapping away. these are a few of my shots. hope you like them.

regards,
john

Just super. Tele converters are lots of fun.

I was wondering if the teleconverter did a good job; well, you surely answered my question!

Those are great shots; are they handheld?

I love the first one, especially!

thanks Saly, Steve and Carol. theyre tripod shots Carol, about 30 to 50 feet away and the tele sure adds weight to the fz. not sure i'd fancy too much handheld with that bolted on lol. it was also a little breezy, i did try a few handheld shots of adult ducks but its hard to hold still at range. makes such a difference on slightly closer subjects too. the ones where youre just starting to use the zoom a bit. the tele takes all the effort out of it and less strain on the camera. so all in all i think i'll be using it a lot this summer on the wildlife shots

in addition, i feel its worth noting you do get the shadow like vignetting around the edge if you dont zoom in on subjects enough. so its no good if youre shooting anything too close. and its a bit of a pain to keep swapping on and off the camera when the subjects come close. but for 115 including the adaptor on amazon, its a well worthy addition to the kit for a panny bridge!

Thanks for that information on the tele, John! I'm definitely going to get one soon! I'm also thinking of a monopod, so I don't have to setup my tripod, or carry it around, even though it's extremely light.
