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…

I bought the Sigma TC-1401 which was introduced last year and where the 2x version […]

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.
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 […]

The full pictures The camera was set to 200 ISO, it’s native ISO setting. All pictures taken with an aperture of f6.3 for the Nikkor, Sigma and Tamron, the Nikkor with […]
Introduction Third test series is with the D800. The Pixelmonster. Allows easily to crop to the D2x resolution from a 400mm picture. However, the camera is slow in picture rate and not as well handled as the D3. I mainly use it for landscapes and general photography. However, bird shots are quite nice as it allows […]
