Over the holidays , with the weather overcast , i was playing around with the video on my camera , using the remote function on the Canon software supplied with the camera.
i set the camera up on a short ground spike and connected it to a laptop with a 15 mtr Usb cable. I had put out some peanuts and before long the Squirrel turned up followed by a Jay with a large appetite.
i was using a wide angle lens with the camera about 400mm away from the subject , i missed one shot of a jay looking at its reflection in the lens. The clip was shot in HD but i don’t think Blogger will handle the file size , so this is compressed quite a bit , it looks great in HD on the Tele though !!!
Really enjoyed this Tim and bet it does look stunning without compression
