Welcoming my new BIF machine - a 1D Mark IV

Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


This afternoon (June 4th), the delivery guy dropped a package I've been eagerly anticipating for sometime now - a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV.
This will become my main BIF body, with the 7D to specialize on long shots at lower ISOs and together with the 5D2, at videos.
In the coming days and weeks, I'll take this camera afield and see how good it really is at birds in the air. :)
