    Anyway from the various forums Nikon QC standard also seem to be dropping loh...

    All I ask for is a system that gets the pics I want, when I want it... which mainly means fast and accurate focusing... Got bad experience with 5700 being slow focusing... and 10D being only accurate 90% od the time.

    Hmm .. the battery is disappointing. So is the grip. The slow buffer, the spot metering as you mentioned in the other thread. Really not surprising the russians come out with a 350D -> 20D hack soon.

    Somehow its starting to boil down like the 10D vs 300D saga again

    For now have to turn a blind eye to this and get my "white" first

    Hmmm .. is it? Can't be that bad the QC ...

    I guess since you're after performance, you have to go for the 1 series or D2 series in nikon. .. Prosumer cameras always a tad slow, been using the 7i for a while, asking me to switch back to it would be tearing my hair out focusing is damn slow.

    u are comparing digicam with dslr? might as well compare A80 with D70...


    u should compare A80 vs 5700, D100 vs 10D

    Actually what I have in mind is that someone to go though the basics of long lens photography and (especially) how to find birds and approach birds.... I hope the others have similar thoughts... so, let every one decide loh.
    Hi CYRN,

    Well, I was thinking that since most of the ppl here are newbies to bird shoot, it may be best to start off in a so called "civilised" environment like SBG, its best to start off with the basics first, i.e. exposure, composition, shutter speed, the do's and don't's of bird photography, the correct way of approaching the bird etc. I thought of sunbirds coz 1) they make excellent subject material 2) they are quite easily found 3) are relatively easy to approach, even if you are using a shorter lens. Of course SBG do have other birds too, but for good first results and practice sunbirds are preferred. And that place is easily accessible to all also. I know of Punggol area, been there before, but its quite remote, lots of walking to do if u dun have transportation, and can be quite hot too.

    For 26 Feb, I can't make it, u guys go ahead with your JBP shoot. Or, if anyone still interested, make the SBG sunbird shoot on tentatively Sun 27 Feb morning? Those who are interested, let me know.
