    I'm glad I asked - thanks. I love panning but I miss a lot trying to shoot through the viewfinder. Update - Just received confirmation of my order - I'm looking forward to trying it.

    I got the RD 400 X that was discussed in a Pany Forum thread,

It took a while to arrive, but at under $20 US, it was well worth it.

    Bill - What make of sight are you using?

    A perfect picture. I especially like the monochrome character. Congratulations!

    Thanks very much for all the nice comments. I just wanted to mention that what made this, and other BIF shots possible, was having a 'Red Dot Sight'. As a pilot, I think of it as similar to a heads up display. Perhaps I am late to the game here, but that made the difference on this trip. Wish I had had it on the Antarctic trip.

    I know itīs not easy to take photos from flying gulls, I have tried it too. Good sharpness, exposure and composition. Nr I in my favorites.

    What a beautiful capture with nearly frozen fingers, I'm sure! I love the soft colours against the frigid aqua water.

    Love the motion you have captured here and the colour imparts a feeling of the cold. From the background, I presume you were tracking the bird in flight and that was perfectly done. My only suggestion would be a fleck of white in the birds eye. Just to top it off you've put the bird in exactly the right place for a square format. Kudos for sure!

    that looks like a big bad bird. the wing downbeat has been captured well here and despite the high speed it was not enough to capture the wing ends. this does not distract and helps make the picture

    Wow, tough tough shot to grab even at 1/1000s. If the wings were tack sharp throughout this would be an award winner! Sense the background is off level though.
