Cormorant in flight - several images
G'day all

My recently-new Panny FZ-2500 has a feature called "4K burst" whereby it shoots at 40 fps, stacks the images as an MP4 video for examination later. In that examination I can select as many individual 'frames' as I wish to become single images ready for follow-on activities. As with many digital cameras in video mode, it crops the frame during this process, the 20mpx dropping to 8mpx, with the responding alteration to apparent focal length being a multiplier is 1,5x. So when shooting at max zoom of 20x / 480mm FF equiv, my max suddenly becomes 720mm equiv. The following images were all shot at maximum zoom. Needless to say ~ I am pretty chuffed at the results

Typical exif - Panny FZ-2500; 1/1600s x F4,5; ISO-250





As always, feedback welcome

The camera may provide the technical wizardry Phil but it still takes skill to hold the subject in frame, especially at 720mm, nicely done. A nice series, I hope to see more of these.
