  • Photographing fast moving birds

    I have a PEN E-PL1 which I use for bird photographs, using the Zuiko 75-300 zoom. VF_4 viewfinder.
    I struggle to get sharp photos and the viewfinder struggles to see the bird that I want to focus on, even when it is in the centre of the screen. I use Sequential and WB Auto, and aperture control setting, 1.3 f6.3 with ISO1600.
    Can anyone suggest either what I'm doing wrong, or how I can get the best from the camera please?
    I like the ease of carrying this combination, but the quality of image is starting to exasperate me, and I'm considering migrating off to Canon. Help!

    Try to use shutter priority instead and set the speed hmm... you need to test it what is good for you, start for example 1/250s and then go faster or slower.
