Incredible autofocus improvements

The latest crop of Nikons seems to have much improved auto focus . Again shot from a balcony 😉

Take a look at these shots here. Shot through foliage and one can still nail the eye of the bird … Phew !!!

Nikon D5, 200-500mm, AF mode AF-C and d-9 ( means 9 points AF on AF Continuous)

Any AF error now would be 90% operator error and nothing to do with the tool itself. I am sure there are a bunch of very happy sports and wildlife photographers out there 😉

Fishing harbours in Sri Lanka

I am finally posting some scans of velvia that I had shot way back in 2003. This was a self project for documenting two fishing harbours close to Colombo,  Negambo and Beruwela.

The amount of exotics fished was mindboggling.

I am sure the catches are way less today than what I saw in 2003.
