Early morning in Dorum at Obereversand. Fantastic weather shown in this short video from there. Either I need to get another gimbal which allows balancing horizontal or some software that allows to do that. Just a little bit of wind and the copter tries to steer against which then results in tilted video. Having some problems […]

Another shooting of the Eurasian oystercatcher (Haematopus ostralegus) at Cappel-Neufeld. All shots taken with Berlebach UNI-16 tripod and Wimberley WH200. Used D2x and D3 on Sigma 150-600 S with TC-1401 and the Tamron 150-600. The Tamron was used without tripod.
Some shots from my testing using the TC-1401 converter on the Sigma 150-600. Very impressive performance…
After I saw some impressive pictures of the Sigma 150-600 using a 2x teleconverter, I wanted to see whether using a crop camera with a telezoom should be used for long range or whether a FX with teleconverter does the trick. I bought the Sigma TC-1401 which was introduced last year and where the 2x version […]
Some shots of Eurasian oystercatcher (Haematopus ostralegus) at Cappel-Neufeld. All shots taken without tripod using Nikon D3 and Sigma 150-600S.
Some shots taken when trying out the DJI drone in Cappel-Neufeld. Nice location for bird shots as well (see other entry). All pictures using Nikon D3 with Sigma 150-600 S. Next one is showing lighthouse Obereversand in 2 kilometers distance. Shot taken against the sun with lots of reflection on the water.
After 2 tries with the Walkera my distributor exchanged the faulty models to a DJI Phantom 2 Vision. Today I had the chance to try that one out. Although not long tested, I can say that this one should have been my first choice. The built-in camera is a relief compared to the crappy iLook […]
Rumors that the Sigma would have a front-focus when used at 600mm and camera uses left or right focus fields on Canon. Quick test to verify that at least my Sigma does not have that problem. First an overview, where the focus hit, then the actual pictures. Order is C1 = left, C6 = middle […]
Another quick test while waiting for some birds. Shooting neighbors brick wall with the D2x and the 2 lenses mounted on Berlebach UNI-16 with Wimberley WH200. The Sigma shows slightly better details than the Tamron. Subject distance was around 10 meters. First the Tamron 150-600 after normal workflow in Lightroom. Now the Sigma 150-600 also with […]
