    Here are some from today.
    I'm having a problem with the settings or something because some of the pics are coming out grainy.

    These people were rallying up ducks and shooting them from a moving vessel.

    I got plenty of more pics.
    Just sorting through them all and resizing them takes a bit.

    What was the ISO setting on the "grainy" pics?

    No clue. First I had it on 1600 then after grainy pics I set it back on auto. Lol

    Should have gotten a better shot of the JA's corralling ducks and shooting them from the moving boat.

    Sh*t like that is what gives us all a bad name, and winds losing us hunters access to lands. Take pics, get the FL #'s, call the FWC and turn 'em in.

    Trust me it works..

    Rant over, back to the thread

    They were set up not far from us.
    After a while of no ducks flying through, they got impatient, picked up and had one on the bow and started riding till ducks pushed up and shot at them.
    That was zoomed in all the way with my 55-200 lens.
    While they were coming by pretty fast. I couldn't get a clear shot of the boat from that distance to get any numbers.

    Think of your digital ISO the same as you would film ISO. Without getting too technical, the higher the ISO, the more sensitive it is to light, and will appear to be "grainy". The lower the ISO the less sensitive it is to light, and will have a clearer picture. If you want to give me a call, I can run you through your manual setting way easier than typing it all out. Shooting manual is the way to go. 386-212-2251

    Eric,

    Since you have exceeded your limit with photos, send me a picture of the boat with the guy riding up front and I will get it to Scott out there and he will take care of the rest.

    It's not very good quality at all because they were far, moving fast, and I had my lens zoomed in all the way.

    But they were googans.
    We pulled up to a spot my friend had scouted and wanted to go back to.
    He thought there might have been someone close so he yelled to see if anyone was around.
    No one replied, but we heard them really close.
    They were doing ridiculous calls, and shooting at random.
    We moved down a bit to not be so close, and after a while we heard them starting to pick up and idle out.
    They came out hauling ass and then when the ducks would fly they were shooting at them.
    Just behind the "island" we were set up on they started blasting.

    You really want to take the camera out of any "Auto" or "P" modes. Set your ISO down in the 400 range to start and don't increase the ISO unless you can't get a workable shutter speed. If your not comfortable using manual mode set your camera to AV this will give you more control of your images.
