Sony A6000 AF-C

I have always wanted to shoot bird-in-flight, but never been successful, even with the Canon 7D and Sony A77. With the purchase of the Sony A6000, I wondered if this now be possible especially with the Sony FE 70-200/4 which has pretty fast autofocus.

Here are some of the images (mainly of seagulls and kestrel but also 2 paraglider shots) I managed to get at Perran Sands. I managed quite a number of keepers with the Sony A6000 + FE 70-200/4 combination using shutter priority, multi-focus points, AF-C, 11 FPS shooting and shutter speed of 1/1000 or faster to avoid motion blur.
