Tryed out my new Tcon-17 Today, had about 50 Sandhill Cranes feeding this morning, and this was the only shot that I feel 1/2 way good about.

Fill free to give me any advice you want to head this newbe in the right direction. Thanks & enjoy:-)

Any EXIF info available?

P, A, S, or M mode?

Exposure mode - Multiple, Center Weighted, or Spot?

I think I'd reshoot this one with Aperture mode at f4.5 to f5.2 and use Spot Exposure on the overexposed head or wings. Center Weighted might work well also.

Also, turn the camera sideways for a Portrait look rather than shooting that tall crane in Landscape.

It was shot in program mode. F/4.0-1/200 ISO 80. Exposure Mode was in spot, I think.

A lady feeds these things every morning, and she has a resident group oof about 50 birds. This will give me a oppertunity for practice.

Spot mode

Iso 80

No EV compensation

P Mode

F/4, 1/200sec



I would agree that taking a shot with something this tall would be better to turn the camera sideways to get the "full bird."

There is no CA which is great and that the shot is not soft as others who have claimed yet not post about this problem.

There is highlight blowout and no post-process can really fix that very well.

Possibly try to adjust the EV down -1/3 to -2/3 or auto bracketing if you are using "P" mode for starters.
