Fantastic as usual Ian. Could you please tell me what exactly the model Kenco is, as I have found a couple and I'm not sure which is compatible with the Canon 100-400 IS

It's certainly cheaper than the Canon 2X.

Roger
It is the Kenko C-AF 2x Teleplus Pro 300
You have to tape over some of the contacts to get the AF to work, the downside to using converters is the reduction of light entering the camera, as I mentioned the shutter speed was down to 1/160 and that was with clear blue skies and strong sunshine, you could compensate by increasing the ISO but then you start to get too much grain.
With the lower speed be prepared for a lot of blurred images but if you do manage to get one spot on it is really worth it :)

Thanks for sharing the pics Ian and it was good to meet you and so many other "names" at the party.

And a Big Thank You to David, Chris, Gaby and Paul for putting together a truly enjoyable day. The food was excellent and judging by the comments afterwards, the helicopter flights went down a treat. I even got sunburned!

And congratulations to the winners of the Radarspotters Competition and Kinetic, Panorama and Moonraker for sponsoring the prizes.

A great day out.
