BIRDS AS ART ON-LINE Notes February 12, 2003

Tanzania Photo Safari

Woodland Kingfisher, Tarangire NP, Tanzania

EOS 1Ds, Canon 500mm f/4 L IS lens, 2X II TC

ISO 400, Evaluative metering -2/3 stop: 1/320 at fll

The 5 IS and the 2XII TC are a deadly combination.  Being able to switch ISO from one frame to the next is a huge digital advantage.

"Opal" Sunset  Tarangire NP, Tanzania

Canon 100-400mm IS Zoom lens handheld at 220mm

EOS 1Ds, ISO 50, Evaluative Metering -1/3 stop: 1/320 at f/5.0

Again, the versatility of the 1-4 zoom while traveling light is a Godsend.


Amazingly, three of the ten available spots on the JAN/FEB Gustafson/BIRDS AS ART Tanzania Photo Safari are filled already.  If you are interested in joining Todd and I on safari, see Bulletin 98 which should be in the archives tonight.

Lioness in Tree, Manyara NPk, Tanzania

EOS 1D, Canon 100-400mm IS  Zoom lens at 300mm

ISO 400, Evaluative Metering +1/3 stop: 1/100 sec. at f/5.6

IS saved the day while working at 300mm and only 1/100 sec. After photographing two lions in the tree in front of us, we looked straight up only to find a huge female only 10 feet above us, and I mean directly above us!
