Hello from Midlothian, Scotland

Hello all. I am new to the forum and have been impressed at the layout and the amount and quality of information. I am experienced with photography but a video novice but have a keen interest in wildlife videos / documentaries, particularly birds. Having seen the quality of the work here I am quite embarrassed to say I have been working with: a bottom of the range JVC CRD340EK SD camcorder, and a Canon Ixus 960 bracketed to a Leica birding scope using video mode, editing with Premiere Elements. Well - have to start somewhere.

Yesterday I received a new Canon XL-H1A, and also Canon EF adapter so I can use my SLR lenses with it, accepting the limitations of such a combination. My buying decision was heavily influenced by the information posted on this forum. The forthcoming birding season will be a learning exercise but I hope to make a better video of my local pair of peregrine falcons. I'll post separately on my work so far in an appropriate section.

Welcome to the list Neil and congrats on your new camera.

I've been keeping a note of the "locals" on dvinfo and I've added you in. At some point I'll repost the updated Excel doc but meanwhile here's a link to the last version http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/935598-post141.html

Welcome aboard.
It is a great forum here with tons of info.

I have not been to Scotland in a few years. My family live in Falkirk and Stirling.
