Same thing, it comes up with Vidťo animaux d'Espagne but it's just a blank screen. Could be just me I suppose.

Gillies,


I enjoyed you clips, I ever watched the nut hatch footage and some others as well.

the vulture footage was very nice and you stayed with that one quite well and kept the camera quite smooth as well!!!!

In spite of the softer image I like it. Actually a softer image goes with the soaring quite nice, It is about impression!!

Gilles, thank you for fine Griffon Vulture footage from Pena Falcon. I know it well.

2 things surprise me about your clip. Your colours are better than I can get with XL2. Did you do much colour enhancing in post? What cam + lens did you use? Secondly, I have never seen the birds landing in such numbers on the slope beyond the main rock face. What time of the year did you shoot this footage? The detail is quite good, often from a distance of over 200metres. I am impressed and intrigued.

Brendan,

I knew you would like this fotage and waited to see your response!!! I see you upscaled to an xl2,, good job. You can do some work on your presets to enrich you colors and sharpness among other things.

I too would be interested in the preset that he used for this footage.

Hi and thank's

1) the settings of the camera are the Per Johan settings.

2) a little bit contrast enhancing and sharpness during the compression with Squeeze 5 sorenson.

3) The cam Canon XL2 lens 300 mm f2,8 Tamron for all the footages Vulturs and Cyanopica cyanus.

4) Time of the year this month January 2009 between the 08 and the 15 in the MontfraguŽ national park (Extremadura center Spain)

5) The Griffon Vulture are constructing their nest that explain the number of birds.

I give you more information on the compression settings next Thuesday when i will be at home.

The tripod is a Vinten carbon and the head a Vinten 11, the computer is an old Mac Power G5 the soft is the old Imovie HD, i have FPC but i dont nor use it. Footage are taken the morning around 11 AM, the exact place is "salto del gitano" the blue winged magpie are filmed in the east of the park.

Thank you for your answers Gilles; they make good sense to me.

But after 2 hours searching through these forums and on Per Johan's website I can't be sure which of his settings you are referring to. Please tell me where you found Per's settings that you used in January in Monfrague?

Brendan,
I don't have the XL-2 anymore and I don't remember the settings! I believe that Gilles got the settings in an email a couple of year ago!
