Kinda cool thing


Recommended Posts

 

These aren't mine, but the shots on this checklist of a Smooth-billed Ani are insane good. I guess if I win the lottery, I'll have to get a Canon Mirrorless!

No, I wouldn't get a Mirrorless over an SLR. I was just listening to a professional photographer recently and he said you just can't get out of a Mirrorless what your can get out of a Single Lens Reflex (SLR), especially a full frame. He owns both and they both are both very expensive cameras, so I guess he knows what he is saying.

Mirrorless cameras are getting better, though, and I hear the R5 is amazing with its Eye AF.  I would love to have a quiet camera and be able to see the histogram in my viewfinder, too!

Yeah, until the R5 and 6 came out, everyone was saying go with DSLR.  My camera is so loud, I personally would love a quieter camera. An older friend of mine actually just upgraded his camera, and got the R6, though he is still figuring out his settings and all since it was a pretty big step up from his previous gear.

If we're opining about super expensive cameras, the upcoming Sony α1 would be top of my want list.

I'm a Sony shooter so the a1 is the stuff dreams are made of but these rumors are UNREAL!

eBird recently updated the data base for  Birds of the World, Merlin, and eBird and replaced/added new photos and audio. 
So as a way to delay doing any sort of school related work, I searched up peoples names (all that I could find on this thread) and lots of people on here had their photos and audio selected! I think all the media is from 2020 and below, but not sure.

Here’s the list so you can search up your own name incase I missed you: https://merlin.allaboutbirds.org/media-contributors/

But here’s what I found:

@Connor Cochrane your photos of an Allen’s hummingbird, Ridgways Rail, and Bewicks wren are being used. 
 

@The Bird Nuts your Ruby-throated hummingbird photo is being used 

@Birding Boy your bank swallow photo is being used 

@DLecy your Rufous-winged sparrow audio is being used 

@RobinHood your photo of a least bittern is being used 

@Tony Leukeringyour photos of an Inca Dove, Black swift, and broad-winged hawk are being used 

Anyways, thought that was very cool!
