Fill the frame

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Wildlife usu­ally doesn’t like to be dis­turbed, which means that wildlife pho­tog­ra­phers need more reach than most to get frame-fill­ing shots. Su­per-tele­photo lenses pro­vide that essential pulling power. Sig­ur­jón was us­ing a Nikon 500mm f/4 on a full-frame D810, but his cam­era’s abil­ity to record pic­tures at smaller im­age sizes meant that his 500mm lens could also give the ef­fec­tive view of a 600mm lens (in 1.2x Im­age Area mode) or a 750mm lens (in 1.5x Im­age Area mode) – al­beit at the ex­pense of out­right res­o­lu­tion (these modes ef­fec­tively crop in on the sen­sor).
