Today's top tip

Don't try and catch elusive cats with a Canon 500 f4L IS + 2 X extender.

1000mm, f8 and 1/40th sec isn't ever going to happen!!

Re: Today's top tip

What sort of cats are we talking about here? I mean, my biggest problem is stopping them from trying to head-butt the lens and lick my face, so a 1000mm lens isn't technically necessary.

Just the usual domestic puddy tats



However being a bit more sensible and not using an extender, got me this

Yes but think just how much fun it would be to watch Mike chasing a cat with that lens
