Jumping for joy!! by jo13

Jumping for joy!!

Hired the JUST released Canon 70d this afternoon. Lots of buttons and functions to get my head around but managed to grab this robin bouncing around in his water bowl !! Unfortunately I am not able to import pics into Lightroom which is a bummer, but otherwise so far so good as I'm pretty sure I would not have captured this with my 550d.
Exif - 1/400 secs @ f4.5 ISO 400. Focal L 183mm.
Wow, so cool! Perfect focus and moment. You know how to do it.

@judithg Thanks Judith. How did Adam do, Harry did well enough to get into college, and is now at Reading Festival doing god know what!!!

@jo13 Brilliant - I'm sure he'll have an amazing time - I'm jealous of his courses!. Adam did really well thanks (the school got a ridiculous number of A*/As but they don't come easy they come from working like crazy). Adam looking ashen after two days away with mates/waiting up for results 'etc'!! Hope Reading goes well!

Instant FAv!! What a fabulous capture!! I must read up about the 70D - how many FPS does it capture? I think I want one if it can get shots like this!!
August 22nd, 2013  
Jo
@pamknowler Thank you Pam. I think it does 7fps, compared to my usual 3 it's like a machine gun, love it!!!

@steampowered Wouldn't that put Brutus's nose out of joint!!
