TJS said:I'm looking forward to some easing so I can at least get near the coast to see different birds in the marshes, reedbeds and mudflats.
I'll second that one. The nearest coastal reserve is three hours drive from here, I somehow don't think I can twist that as a drive for exercise..... LOL

TJS said:Actually I was using Aperture Priority Mode, my default Mode. It sounds counter-intuitive to use A Mode but I force the camera to use the widest aperture to give the fastest shutter speed available and just increase the ISO if I need to increase the shutter speed, that way you are always using the fastest shutter speed for any given lighting condition.
An alternative to Aperture Priority is always Shutter Priority, which may be a better option. I say that because sometimes you may need a specific shutter speed, which you can select, whereas AP still has control over the shutter speed.
Just a thought.
