I used iso 400 for all my shots today due to cloudy conditions and I think they came out pretty well. I did clean them up with noiseware software (a small price to pay to get shots other wise not possible due to too slow of shutter speeds). I was extemely please with the results, because of things I read I thought iso 400 would be useless.

nice shots! ISO 400 isn't useless, it's just likely to be a little noisy in some situations, like where you have large areas of uniform color (your shots here don't), or whenthe picsare shot in very low light (these weren't). Also, you won't notice the noise near as much in smaller image sizes. I personally don't buy this business that the FZ's are too noisy at ISO 400 to use... maybe to a pro, for professional purposes, but for anything short of a magazine cover, I really don't think it matters!!

ISO 400 - as proven here, get a bad rap. ->If you have decent noise removal software<- it's fine to use 400. These pictures didn't lose much sharpness, and sometimes those days with a lot of overcast give you a nice subdued lighting without nasty harsh shadows or overexposed highlights. Fantastic. $ is my favorite... was the bird upside down or where you? :G

Nice shots bmullen.

What noise removal software did you use?

You are good at capturing those bird shot... I'm jelious...:-)

Ive been practicing at birds for some time now, but you seem to be a natural at it.

Great work...
