Nikon D4 – Quick Shot

Here is one reason why I think it is an awesome camera. I was standing behind my mother-in-law’s place watching some hawks hooking up talons in the distant sky and wishing they were closer. Through the leafless trees flying at top-level I noticed a GBH about to come overhead. I raised the camera above my head because that was the only opening and it was going to be a tough capture. With the D4 set at 10 fps the GBH came into the small opening. I might as well been laying on my back shooting straight up. I focused and shot at the same time. Six captures and it was gone in a flash. Bingo! Six shots and all in focus. No way….I couldn’t believe what I was reviewing on the screen. Good thing no one was looking because I was talking to myself.
This capture is about 75% of full frame. Small ACR and levels adjustment in CS6. I wanted to show you what it looks like without any noise reduction or sharpening.
