Good one John,so your talking 600mm on that lens how do you rate the 2x converter John? been reading up on them.

Thanks David got to get used to the converter as it can give vibration, it can also hunt a lot if you zoom a bit too much by the way I hope you didn't mind my comment on you Chinook re the shutter speed as you can see 320 just gives the motion blur to the rotors

Dont mind at all John,all tips are helpful ,I hadn't time to reset it when it flew over.My lens is a Sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 would a 2x converter work what would it stop down to its a bit confusing?.

David you should have no trouble with your Sigma Lens as they are the same as my Nikon ie f/4-5.6 you will lose 1/2 stops what do you use for post editing as i have also had good results from the 300m/m lens albeit on a heavy crop and visits to Photoshop and Lightshop

Thanks John that's clears it up,I have Nikons software installed which came with camera [D3000]for post edit usually crop or trim on the camera but always saving the original.
