CommentThis is the first Canon R5 image I have processed. Not much available light in overcast conditions as you can discern from the high ISO. I have set the camera up for back-button focus (AF-ON button) and eye detection AF (* button). The eye AF seems to work quite well provided the bird is not too small in the frame. I welcome comments and questions which I will try to answer based on limited testing.
EquipmentCanon R5 + 600 mm f/4 III, tripod.
Manual, partial metering, servo AF with eye detection, f/8, 1/500 sec, ISO 12,800.
Processed using DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
