This question already has an answer here:
I am an amateur photographer and I have a Sony DSC HX400v bridge camera which has 50x optical zoom (quite helpful in taking close-up shots of wild animals). The effectiveness of the zoom lens is however negated when I try to focus on a swiftly moving subject such as an eagle or any other bird in flight. I also have a tripod with me. Can anyone please suggest ways/provide tips to capture a flying bird accurately?
Thanks in advance
