    Small Change the Cat

    K100d, part of my DSLR rennaisance

    I like the long tonal scale despite the iso 1600 (50-200m lens only opens to f4.5)

    Here is a similar shot with the small sensor Fuji S6000fd

    ISO 100
    Because of the subject it is hard to get identical angles and light, Cats cooperate SO well

    Nice cat shots both.

    I prefer the second one, probably because the light and pose is more interesting. But the background is less busy in the first (and itīs not just the shorter DOF, itīs those books...).

    With dogs, one has to keep shooting all the time to get a decent number of keepers. Kids are the same; would suppose cats are, too.

    I quite agree Per, I find with my cats at least, the use of the LCD live preview really helps; my face is not covered and I am looking at the LCD NOT the kitties.
