Robin on a Power Line by Derwent-01
Clear

While wandering around the village of Woodbridge in the south of Tasmania on the 27th of June 2010 I spotted this little fellow sitting on a power line enjoying the afternoon sun.
Naturally I had a camera with me, so I grabbed a shot using my trusty Canon SX120IS pocket digi.
ISO-100
1/400 sec.
f/4.3
Focal length 60mm

Straight out of the camera, nothing done to it whatsoever.

    You did well to get this that sharp handheld. Presumably you needed to zoom in a bit (I have no idea what 60mm equals in 35mm format) but you’ve done a great job of exposure too.

    We have a couple of species of red robins here in Tasmania. Any idea which one this little guy is? Great effort Greg.
    Cheers,

  • No idea which species he was, not my speciality I am afraid…if he had an engine and wheels I could probably tell you what year he was made…but feathers and fur wise I can pretty much say male red breasted robin…

    Annoyingly the Canon doesn’t have the 35mm equivalent in the EXIF data like the old Nikon did, and I am not sure what conversion factor to apply to obtain the equivalent rating. Maybe I should contact Canon and ask them…
    As for the sharpness, while not wishing to downgrade my own work, I must acknowledge that the image stabilisation in these things is quite helpful on occaision…especially when the camera has no viewfinder apart from the screen so best practice holding technique is not possible!
