Heard a commotion yesterday in the garden and looked out to see the poor pigeon being disembowled by our resident hawk (identification would be good as I'm not sure - sparrow hawk ?).
Was quite disconcerting to see the pigeon squirming then just stopped moving as the raptor ripped into it's flesh. Shot with my Z7 with the 300mm PF and 1.4x through double glazed windows at around 50m
I got one that also reads SD cards (Bottom slot)Can anyone point me to an XQD Card Reader. Looking for recommendations.
Thanks Graham. Just ordered that one, SD card reader will be useful as well....I got one that also reads SD cards (Bottom slot)
My experience is to go with genuine batteries. A few tests online would suggest going for the very latest en-el15C, as it eeks out a few more shots and if you ever upgrade it'll allow power delivery via power bank.Hopefully got a Z6 & 24-70 turning up tomorrow.
Thinking about odd bits I’ll need, wondered what people are using for additional batteries. OEM or third party options.
(No doubt loads of other daft questions when I get the camera inhand)
Thanks again. You seem to be a constant source of answers for meMy experience is to go with genuine batteries. A few tests online would suggest going for the very latest en-el15C, as it eeks out a few more shots and if you ever upgrade it'll allow power delivery via power bank.
I'd get a rear/top screen protector, a bracket/grip/plate for the underside that also gives a bit more height to the body.
Haha, you read my mind. The 14-30 is on the list once I get straight. Got a bit of Fuji gear to move on so hopefully plenty left for additional glass14-30 and 70-200.
Yes it can, but the difference between the Z6 and Z6II is the Z6II will allow it to power the camera while on. With the Z6 it will only charge it while off.Thanks again. You seem to be a constant source of answers for me
I’ll look at the genuine batteries as suggested. I’m assuming you can’t charge the Z6 from a power bank.
To be fair not yet, but just moving the lens around continuous focus was slow to change, even on fastest setting, I was expecting it to be snappier and if anything felt slower to change than before upgrade ? This was with Dynamic Area AF (AF-C)I've updated mine but have yet to take a shot with it. Have you tried out the face/eye AF?
Hi, I have one although I don`t remember where/who I bought it from except it was from evilbay but look on there and search corded camera hand straps, ther are a few.I've finally ordered a Z6ii.
I now need to order some memory cards. Can someone give me a rough idea how many Raw shots I should expect to get on a card please so I can decide on what sizes to get.
Can someone recommend a decent comfortable Hand/Wrist Strap please.
Have you updated the firmware to 3.30?I have setup up my camera for sports mode on U2, but for some reason the evf is laggy where on all other presets (i have setup for landscape and portrait) and the regular PSAM modes the evf isnt lagging, what have i done to make this happen?
EDIT: Ive figured it out, its AF-C that causes it, the other settings are on AC-S
EDIT 2: Its doing it even though im not holding af-on im just looking through the evf
Yes please. I’m so close to chopping in my 24-70 and 70-300 for this. I really like my 24-70 but a one lens fix is very appealing. I’ve just noticed that the 24-200 doesn’t have the annoying lock to ‘close’ the lens like the 24-70 does. Another plus point. Please let us know your thoughts after you’ve had a day with the lens.This beautiful lens arrived today, I'll be taking it to Snowdonia this weekend to see how it performs I'll post feedback on here if anyone is interested
