Silent swans in early morning close-up pics couple of days ago.
Gear: M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4, C-AF + Bird Tracking. Bird tracking works very fine also with these kind of tight close-up pics, tracking focuses to bird’s eye.
It is almost the darkest time of the year, days are very short and no snow at all here in South-Western Finland.
And no sun.
Bird photography is absolutely impossible – unless if you use some artificial light. Here are some examples from our back yard.
I also tested the new E-M1X bird tracking AF option. First impression is that it works very fine even at very low light and bird behind bushes. The bird tracking AF identifies the shape of bird and focuses to bird’s eye. Of course, there was so little light that it was impossible to test to moving birds.
