And taken with a Panasonic FZ 27! So no looooong zoomlens, but quite close! 190 mm if you look at 35 mm equivalent actually.

And.... Taken last year, so it can be entered into the competition... :whistle:

That's called EXIF information. ;)

If you use for instance Irfanview you can view it by hitting I (Information) and then E (EXIF info).

Short story behind the sighting.

We were driving on the Confluence road at Shingwedzi when we saw the cub running across the river towards us; it was dry and must have been 100m wide. I stopped and shortly afterwards the mother appeared in the road not 10 m from us and promptly sat down.

Shortly after this the cub appeared and charged at its mom grabbing her tail. For the next 30 minutes we were treated to charges, stalking and attacking maneuvers that had us roaring with laughter. The cub would disappear into the grass and then suddenly appear stalking its mother, then charge and grab anything available. It would get a few cuffs and disappear into the grass again.

On a few occasions the mother would stalk it and as she got near would bounce forward and land with stiff front legs, the cub would charge out and run down the road before returning with yet another attack.

Suddenly the cub took off at full speed back across the river with mother desperately chasing after it.

During all this time about 5 kudus were standing in the dry river bed barking their heads off.

It really was special and very entertaining.

:cam:
I’m pretty excited – just bought myself a Canon 300mm lens for next week’s trip to KNP, and to top it all, a friend is letting me use his 600mm Minolta lens with 1.4 converter and Sony body! Hope I won’t be shaking too much and spoil all the photos!
With my luck all the game is going to be in the road next to the car ha!ha! :tongue:
Can't wait to test all the goodies. Any tips on using the big lens will be appreciated. Oh yes, I will have a bean bag and monopod.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II owners:

This firmware update (Version 2.0.8 ) incorporates the following changes and fixes.

* Fixes a phenomenon in which movies are not taken at the shooting mode registered in the user's settings if a shooting mode Aperture priority (or Shutter priority) is registered in any of the camera's user settings (C1, C2, C3) and the user attempts to shoot a movie.
* Fixes a phenomenon in which the shutter will not release when pressing the shutter button when the auto power off function is set to "on".
* Fixes a phenomenon in which overexposure occurs when shooting a Live View shooting simulation with the ISO speed set to L.
* Fixes a phenomenon in which the settings of the Speedlite transmitter ST-E2 revert to the default settings when both the camera and the ST-E2 are set to auto power off.
* Fixes a phenomenon in which the Macro Ring Lite (MR-14EX, MT-24EX) and slave flash do not sync while shooting wirelessly.

The Version 2.0.8 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.7. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.8, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Hi to everybody :yaya:

This is my first post in the phtography forum because I am no way a good photographer and have no aspirations more than try to do my best with the kind of camera that I have, BUT I need a little help if possible.... I have an awful photo of an african wildcat taken last month in KTP in the evening at the Urikaruus waterhole. It was too dark and too far away for my x20 zoom, but I would love to be able to see that it is a AWC :wink: Is there anything that some clever guy with photoshop or other can do, please?

Hi Everyone,

So we are regular Kruger visitors and recently i thought it was time to get the last 5 years of photos together and share them. Take a look here and if you are a member of Flickr send me a contact request or comment.

I hope you like:)

Regarding Wildlife Photography, (as if there was any other kind!) do you sharper forumites shoot in RAW or JPEG and why? :hmz: :D
