Here’s another 7DmkII image shot yesterday of a Northern Flicker in the Pacific Northwest. I shot this in very low light handholding the 70-200mm 2.8L IS II with the 2X III teleconverter. I used the 10fps frame rate of the 7DmkII to fire a burst increasing my odds of getting a sharp image that wasn’t affected by the movement of my hands and the slow shutter speed. I pushed the ISO to 3200 and processed in Lightroom without adding any additional noise reduction beyond the default color noise reduction.
