Squirrels with Sigma 10-20mm


Link Posted 15/04/2012 - 16:22
Been trying something different today. Firing the K5 remotely with the Sigma 10-20 on. Set at 16mm. Will be trying again so any C&C gratefully received. The litle so and so give the K5 a good check over before posing. Wish I'd taken my Kx to get a pic of that action.

Now they ARE impressive .. the 10-20mm gives the squirrel a 3D look.
Certainly different, first one is the best imo

Wonderful pics, Alan!

No.2 for me. Great action capture.

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Very impressive images, sharp with beautiful colours! My favourite is number one.

What a great inquisitive look they have. Fabulous. Is that with a radio remote or the normal IR one?

Very cool. Did you leave some nuts by the camera to attract them to it?

Great shots Alan and a good technique, thanks for sharing these with us.

Excellent shots

The more I look at these the better they seem to get
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Thanks for the comments everyone. To answer the couple of questions. I just had a cheap chinese IR remote, and there were peanuts hidden out of shot. Had another go tonight, but it wasn't as successful.

On the plus side I took the Kx too and had the Siggy 150-500 on that. I'll post some pics tomorrow, just to show off my Kx which I hadn't used this year before today

Very well done, excellent shots - I see many great photo's on here but very few actually make me smile

Like the others my favourite is very definitely the first squirrel one

Really excellent. Out of interest did you use a present manual focus or did you let the camera autofocus each shot?
