Nice ones, Neil. Regardless of which camera was used, these are fine images. With the V1, it shows the capability of the camera in skilled hands.

I end up thinking of a musician friend of mine who told me a story about his violin. He couldn't afford a good one in college and he was complaining to his professor about it. He said he couldn't play a particular piece because the violin just wasn't good enough. The professor took the violin and played a masterpiece. He handed it back to my friend and said, essentially, that the problem wasn't the violin.

The V1 is a great camera. It's not an all-around everything camera, though. But if you play to its strengths then it will perform brilliantly.

Neil,
Great shots!! Since I just got my V1, I'd be very interested in what camera settings you were using, i.e., shutter speed, etc. I'm taking my new V1 and 200-400 out birding this weekend!
Best, Tom

I'll have to look it up when I get home from work. But off the top of my head it was Aperture priority, 70-300 VR @ 300 wide open. I think the meta data is in the file if you want to inspect it.
