Some shots with the 2X teleconverter from yesterday. I was trying to photograph distant Red-necked Grebes (in summer plumage), Stejneger’s Scoters and (another?) White-billed Diver.
Most of the shots were crap but the above diver wasn’t too bad and was actually handheld.
These shots were on the monopod…………..
One thing I’ve noticed about the R5 is a lot of the monopod/teleconverter shots are soft. I usually use the monopod when I attach a T/C and handhold without. Is it the image stablization ‘fighting’ with the monopod? I know my lens (the 500 f4M2) can sense it’s on a tripod but can it sense it’s on a monopod?

Gosh, all very technical Stuart! Can’t see anything wrong with this excellent selection of images.
Thanks Tony. The hit rate was not so high though.
I think the IS and the monopod should complement each other for a sharp image…
yes they did on my 7DM2, maybe I just had a couple of dodgy days with this combo?
