Fuji Xt5 Testing with Birds

I’m currently renting the Fuji X-t5 to compare it to my x-t2 and wow, what an upgrade. Primarily the low light support, autofocus, and focus tracking / object identification make birds in flight easy. All of these had IBIS and OIS on, and were shot hand held.

All photos taken with the Fuji X-T5 and the Fuji 70-300.

Golf Course Birds

A nearby abandoned golf course has great biking and lots of good opportunities for birding. This was my first time out with the Fuji 70-300 with the 1.4x teleconverter. It’s not as sharp as I want, I think I’ll use the tc a bit more sparingly.

All photos taken with the Fuji X-t2, Fujinon 70-300, and Fujinon 1.4x teleconverter, in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Woodpeckers, Fall 2022

FInally got some good photos of these two, who visit my birdfeeder regularly but are quite skittish. Male Downy woodpecker and Redbellied woodpecker. Taken with my Fuji Xt-2 and Fujinon 70-300mm lens.

Dyke, VA 2022

Another trip to Dyke and some nice photography opportunities. The astro photos didn’t turn out, but the trees were beautiful. Photos were taken with a Fuji Xt2 and Fujinon 70-300mm.

Bird of Prey

These beautiful birds have been visiting our neighborhood for the past few months. I think they are ospreys but I’m not sure. ALl photos taken with my Fuji XT-2 and Fujinon 70-300mm lens. Handheld with OIS enabled.
