Very nice shots TC. I am very impressed with all your posts as I love to go hiking my self.
Do you use a monopod or tripod when shooting with your 100-400 and if you don't mind me asking, what was the exif on these buck shots.
hanThanks for the comments. Almost all my shots are handheld. The only time I use my tripod is when I sit in my blind and I rarely use my monopod. I've found that messing with either causes me to miss shots.
My rule of thumb on the 10-400 is anything above 1/160 with IS works pretty well. Anything below that, a tripod will help as long as they stand completely still.
Here is a great free download that allows you to right click images right in your browser for the EXIF ( so long as if it is provided)
Thank you. Trust me , I was not complaining, he was pretty much posing for me before he ran.
I Think I am going to regret not getting the IS version of the 70-200 as many of my images are soft.
