This article features a selection of handheld images of ducks captured with the M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom and MC-20 teleconverter. As noted in a previous article, I was not initially planning to do any bird photography on this particular day, and left my M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS at home.

Pigeon In Close
This short article features a small selection of handheld images of a pigeon flying in close, captured with an M.Zuiko PRO 40-150mm f/2.8 zoom and MC-20 teleconverter.
I wasn’t planning to do any bird photography on the day that these photographs were created. As a result I had left my M.Zuiko 100-400mm f/5-6.3 IS at home. It was a good thing that I did.
MC-20 Hi Res Test
The article features some M.Zuiko MC-20 Hi Res test images of frogs, captured handheld during a recent visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens. These test photographs were created using an E-M1X with an M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
Dragonflies with MC-20
This article shares some photographs from a recent dragonflies with MC-20 handheld test that I did at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington Ontario. While my favourite teleconverter is the M.Zuiko MC-14, I do occasionally use the M.Zuiko MC-20 when I need some additional reach.
Tagged Trumpeter Swans
I’ve received a few enquiries asking about the tagged trumpeter swans that are in many of my images from LaSalle Park. Rather than respond to those emails individually I thought readers may have an interest in the background information about the tagged trumpeter swans.
Swan on the Run
This article features 24 consecutive images of a swan on the run crossing the surface of a pond at Hendrie Valley in Burlington Ontario. I made a quick focal length adjustment part way through capturing this series of photographs, going from a focal length of 508 mm (efov 1016 mm) to 400 mm (efov 800 mm). When we photograph birds-in-motion we sometimes need to make a quick focal length adjustment to maintain the relative framing of the subject in our image run.
Mute Swans Mating
This article features a selection of photographs illustrating mute swans mating. These images were captured handheld at Hendrie Valley in Burlington Ontario using the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI Subject Tracking.
Swans at War
This article features a good selection of handheld images of swans at war, fighting in a back section of one of the ponds at Hendrie Valley. All photographs were captured using the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI Subject Tracking, along with an M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom lens fitted with an M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter. I used ‘pulse shooting’ for all of the photographs.
Using Teleconverters for BIF
This article discusses using teleconverters for BIF and some of the practical considerations that come into play with this type of photography. Many people love to photograph birds and really enjoy capturing images of birds-in-flight (BIF). Using long telephoto lenses can be a challenge. This is compounded when teleconverters are added to the mix.
All of the photographs featured in this article were captured handheld in about 2 hours and 15 minutes during a visit to the lift bridge in Burlington Ontario on Tuesday of this week.
Favourite Pro Capture Images
This article shares some of my favourite Pro Capture images that were created using an E-M1X, M.Zuiko telephoto lenses, and M.Zuiko teleconverters. All were captured handheld. Without question the more that I have used Pro Capture, the more indispensable it has become to my bird and insect photography.
