Tickell's flowerpecker (Hebbal lake)
More photos at: News from Hebbal lake
Back to Bangalore and Hebbal lake :) Just wanted to spend some time with nature on Saturday morning so went to Hebbal lake. It had rained on Friday night so the weather was pretty decent.
One of the experiments that I tried here was shooting at ISO 800. I was under the impression that D40 doesn't perform well at ISO greater then 400, but I was loosing many shots because of inadequate shutter speed. To my surprise the photos taken at ISO 800 were decent enough and I also got more usable photos. Faster shutter speed surely improves chances of getting sharper shot. Hats off to Nikon D40, its an awesome entry level DSLR.
