Default 12-23-11 This Mornings Work Commute Part Deux



This guy is now my pet basically even made this groaning sound. (Blue Heron)


The goose flies over me.



And finally the elusive Kingfisher Finally.
I have to study this loudmouth more



I did drive past the eagles nest again
but now there's RED Warning signs from the state.
So I will have to wait till they fly around to try to catch them again.

I took more angled shots of the Heron but haven't processed them


Same image as above but shaded

Thanks Wolf

Ok now onto explaining what the RDS does (Red Dot Sight)
You will mount the RDS to your Hotshoe of your camera via a custom bracket.

Next you will calibrate the RDS to match the focus point of your lens.
Example when you are out in the field spot metering, single point focus
looking through your view finder you will see this.



With the RDS it is calibrated so when a bird is flying around instead of looking zoomed in through the viewfinder
or live view all you have to do is aim get the red dot/green dot on the bird press shutter half way down to get a
lock hold AF/AE lock and burst fire away while making focus adjustments makes it much easier to get your
birds in flight. The RDS has to be calibrated with your zoom lens so for example I need to calibrate mine so that @ 500mm
fully extended I am at dead zero the red dot matches exactly with how you see the single point focus through the viewfinder.

The RDS is holographic reflex so it's basically a heads up display the light is led so its safe for your eyes and it can be dimmed
or brightened as well as the MOA size meaning the size of the dot you see on the head ups.


*No Light hits the birds the light is shined from the back of the rds and it bounces off the two way mirror
and into your view. I know some people think the birds are lit up rest assured they are not.
