A hungry Nuthatch 4-5 meal worms
shame its on the 'noisy' side
otherwise nice capture
great action shot
I incrased the iso to 5000 because shutter was reduced to 60 this caused noise. Not sure what else I could have done
Great shot, shame about the noise.
Hi Tony, with a 7d you do get lots of noise which starts at ISO 800 you should never be going over ISO 3200 and you can set the 7d to stop at this limit?.
As the nuthatch was perched feeding at the time the slower shutter speed would have worked well, presumably this was taken earlier today when we had some sun or were you in a very shady spot? what time of day did you take it? what len are you are using and what other settings did you have? it may be worthwhile doing a search on line for 7d wildlife camera settings.. All the best Bob
Thanks for that Bob the camera has been back to Canon once got it back and it is still very hit and miss with the manual focus it is sharp in the viewfinder but when played back is unsharp, point taken on board thanks all the best for 2013 camera going back to canon

Hi Tony if its been to canon and you have it on auto focus, with evaualtive mode, and single point AF focusing and keeping the ISO below 3200 try at 800 it should still look good on the viewfinder and not have so much noise when dowloaded. Try and have a look on line for other settings to help improve your pictures. Hope to see you in teh new year have a good one Bob
Bob using my 75 300 IS usm lens only 2 metres from bird auto not an option I will set iso at max 3200 in future was dark under tree, at 100 the shutter went down to 60 so increased the iso to bring up shutter speed

Tony, do you have a distance setting on your lens? also would you check your compensator sometimes this could be moved if not locked off.. Cheers Bob
What exactly is the problem you are having?
Does it happen with only one lens, or all lenses?
Is it only at high ISO? You will always see a perfect image in your viewfinder, as you are seeing an optical image and not a digital image with noise, so this is normal.
Is the issue sharpness? Have you tried to calibrate one of you lenses to the camera body? If it works, do the same with others, your camera will remember lens specific adjustmenst?
Put camera on tripod with 50mm or wider lens indoors; manually focos on an object; carefully slide the focus switch to auto while closely watching the lens focus ring; if it moves even the slightest bit, you need to calibrate the lenses with the camera. Its a pain, but worth it.
