Yes, he's great isn't he - my pics are very hit and miss. I have to take about 20 to get a single good one while Rupert waits and clicks once or twice to get his!

I found it hard to illuminate the birds correctly with a flash so I disabled the flash and tried using a higher ISO (more sensitive to light) but sometimes, the camera seems to have problems focusing correctly, especially on dark / white birds. The idea was to get a faster shutter speed as I was getting birds with a blur when they moved around.

When people bring their birds up for a photo, you don't get long to think about it and the little screen on the camera doesn't really show you an out of focus bird = until you download the photos to find the bird is a blur!

There's usually a menu that has flash options --- somewhere!

If you turn the flash off, the shutter speed slows down in order to get enough light through. Then, as the shutter speed slows, movement becomes blurred. It's best to use a tripod but birds do move quite a lot so it doesn't always work.

Sometimes I find standing further away from the bird and zooming in more, (but using flash) works because the flash isn't so bright on the bird then and the reflections from objects around the room give a better / more even light.
