Breaking in a New Camera

I picked up a new camera yesterday: The Canon R5. I took it out today and tried it out for the first time………..

The Crossbills were in the same place as a couple of weeks ago. The new camera is taking a bit to get used to……………a lot of new things to think about.

    1. Hi Tony, yes it was time. My 7DM2’s main dial broke long ago and it had other issues too. Not worth fixing. The R5 is a big step up anyway………..

  1. Really interested to see how you get on with this new camera. Have you gone for the 100-500 RF telephoto to match? Or did you get a Converter to use your EF lenses…?

    1. Hi Tony, if I try and buy the 100-500 it will end in either divorce or (my) murder…………..anyway not on my radar yet at all.

      These Crossbill shots were with a bare 500 f4. I used ‘crop mode’ (I think) for the male. Haven’t tried the T/C yet.

      I did try the 100-400 MK1 (the Redpoll 2 post above) and it is just about OK in the aforementioned ‘crop mode’.
