Long-tailed tit

I have sold all my Canon camera bodies, but hung onto the lenses for now in the hope that Canon announce a top of the range mirrorless system in the spring. I do not want to use a DSLR every again. I have got too used to the wonderful advantages of a mirrorless camera. The Pro-capture feature is my favourite and I keep looking for the opportunity to use it. I have it set so it takes 14 pictures before I press the button and only 1 after. I get 15 pictures each time. This helps to reduce the editing time that would otherwise be very high at 60 frames per second.

I do like the Olympus for being small and light, but it is not the biggest draw for me. I can still cope with the heavier Canon gear and would like to see a full chipped mirrorless Canon body.

This long-tailed tit is flying towards a feeder and the camera manually prefocused in the flight path.

Long-tailed tit, Aegithalos caudatus, single bird in flight, Warwickshire, February 2018. Olympus EM1 MK2. 40-150mm lens. 1/8000th f7.1. 3200 iso. Using the pro-capture at 60 fps.
