Wildlife clip - EX3, slow motion, Nikon lenses

Hi all,

Here is a short clip of a Pied Kingfisher I shot in Israel last month. 720 25p, 60 fps, -3 gain, 180 degrees Shutter Speed, stock lens, Nikon 200-400 G VR, Nikon 600 ED f5.6. The Nikon lenses were mounted on the EX3 using Mike Tapa's adaptors. Mounts and Adaptors
Looks much nicer on my Mac.

Critique/comments/suggestions are very welcome.

Video Gallery

Cheers,
Ofer Levy Photography

Really beautiful. Was the Kestrel also shot with the EX3+Nikon?

Also curious where you photographed the birds. Hula Valley nature preserve perhaps?

Arnt.

Much as I would like, I can only take credit for the adaptor.
The genius behind the camera is Ofer levy.

Ofer.
You have done it again... fantastic.
The super close up at the end is amazing.

Well done.

Of course I ment Ofer. I followed the link to your website Mike, not easy to get it all right when the brain is past the 50's :-)

Thanks for the kind words guys!
Ned, yes, this was taken in Hula Valley although you can find them everywhere in Israel. Same EX3 + Nikon 600 ED f5.6.

Arnt, as to finding the subject in the viewfinder - I explain it in here, If you need some more detailed explanation please send me an email.
