    Not been able to get out as much as I'd like lately due to the weather and other engagements but have managed to get a few decent shots in the last couple of months.








    Finally got a used battery grip the other day too which has made it much more comfortable to use as well as a cheap neoprene lens coat off ebay to save the lens a bit from bumps.

    Yeah, I use the self timer semi regularly on my D3200 and D3100. Works, fine, but I've also got wired and IR remote shutter triggers, which work nicely too (ebay/amazon cheapy deals for about 1/10 the price of the official ones )!

    Yeah, the stabilisation helps a little bit but you really want it on a tripod or resting on something for most shots, fortunately was nice and bright for that kingfisher as I'd only just arrived and didn't have time to get anything proper set up.

    Looks nice though - I'd love to get something like that for our trips to Africa..
    Actually have a cheap ir remote but forgot it the other day so had to use the self timer (is actually pretty good on the d7200) for some shots of a marsh harrier perched in the distance.

    New wildlife setup

    Been thinking about getting something a bit chunkier than a 300mm and finally gave in the other day and got a 150-600 lens, tripod and bargain basement gimbal to go with the cheap d7200 I got a while back.



    Really pleased with it from what I've tried out so far, the gimbal isn't the best but is really good for how cheap it was plus the quick release plate makes the tripod foot feel slightly bigger and more secure when carrying which I like. Quick shot I got handheld the other day when trying out the lens:

Working...
