Very foggy when I started out this morning and the first bird I encounter is a Veery under a canopy of trees. It hopped up on a branch for me and let me snap off 2 shots. Was using Aperture Priority(F/7.1)with auto ISO set to 250 to 1600 @ 1/500 shutter speed. The camera ran the ISO up to my max of 1600 and then dropped my shutter speed below my set minimum of 500,ended up at 320. D7100,300F4,1.4tc.Ran it through Topaz Denoise and then Color Efex Pro 4 detail extractor. Pleasantly surprised how it came out. Not a wall hanger but I wouldn't even have bothered taking a shot with the D300.

Nicely done in capturing a usually shy & elusive bird. Graininess/noise is starting to show, but you're right I wouldn't even have tried with my D300 as well. I've shot photos of my grandchildren as ISO1250, which turned out quite well, but really haven't put it to the test with birds. Was this much of a crop?

Thanks Richard. 33% crop from a 1.3 crop mode image. Was just trying out auto ISO and may use it more but drop the max back to 1200. I have always been a manual shooter but have been experimenting with aperture mode with this camera. Haven't tried shutter priority yet. What mode do you shoot in ?
