Fujifil XT10 with 55-200mm OIS lens

Took the new Fuji XT10 out for a brief shoot with the ducks with the new 55-200mm OIS Fujinon lens. Very impressive piece of glass, easy to use, good hood, weight was ok on small XT10 body, AF was very quick. Enjoy the pictures. Most shot at F9 at 1/1000th at around 500-600 iso. Click pictures for bigger view. All processed from raw in Lightroom and cropped again in post.

Canon 7d mark ii – Flame trees and cockatoos in Lightroom CC

Its Autumn in Sydney where the temperatures are starting to drop in sync with the autumn leave falling from the trees. Today I found two great signals autumn and winter had taken hold – flame trees and Cockatoos. Click all pictures for bigger view. The 7dmkii is certainly a great camera for capturing many subjects, even in what was once considered poor lighting. Lightroom does a very good job of processing the raw files and you can see for yourself the end result. Considering most of these are also cropped considerably from the originals, the images hold up very well indeed. As usual, there is always the retrospective thoughts about how I should have taken these shots. Maybe a high sync flash would have helped, but then again its difficult to have all your gear in every situation.
