Canon EOS-1D X / Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM pictures from canoe


Last few weeks I have spent photographing from a canoe with Canons equipment
Canon EOS-1D X / Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM,  and I´m very content with the result.  When you move on the water absolute silent it is possible to get really close to birds and other animals; so far I have got pictures of Beaver, Moose, Black throated diver and Whooper swan from the canoe.





 In June it is possible to shoot all night through in the marvelous light. Canon's new EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM   is no problem  to hand hold from the canoe. I have also tried longer shutter speed  and it looks like the image Stabilizer works well if the canoe stand as still as possible in the water.

Golden eagle Hide and Seek

An image photographed with one of my first digital cameras.


It was a 10.1 megapixel camera Canon 400D, the lens is a 300 2.8L.FD. For over 20 years ago I bought this lens. Problems arose when Canon changed the system from the FD to Eos. There I was with a 300 2.8 but the wrong socket. I have a friend who rebuild the converters with a new clutch and shortened down the conv. 1.4 and 2x so it is possible to focus out to infinity as the Eos camera bodies are about 1mm thinner. I now use Canon's new EF 300/2,8L IS USM. I have retouched a small splinter of wood from the eye.
