Flying Fox - mock fight clip taken from about 50 meters

Hi all,
EDIT: Just realized the quality of the clip on XR is far lower than what can be expected compared with the original. It is even surprisingly inferior to the quality of the clips which were obtained by the EX3 without the Flash XDR. I wonder whether the compression of the far bigger files captured by the Flash XDR cause this deterioration in the final resized clip quality. I follow the instructions on XR as to how to resize the clip for web but maybe the procedure should be a bit different for such high quality files which the Flash XDR produces. (4:2:2 100Mb/s as opposed to 4:2:0 35 Mb/s by the EX3) - any ideas?

Sony PMW EX3, Nikon 200-400 f4 G VR via Nikon G to EX3 adaptor and Flash XDR. Shot from around 50 meters.
No processing was applied although I realise it would benefit from some processing.

Cheers,

Dear Ofer,

Sorry, but I am in the dark, what is "XR"?

I just found it: "XR" means "Exposure Room", a place where you show your videos.

Ofer,

Looks like your setup is well suited to these large bats.

The animals seem oblivious to your presence. Are you working from a blind or are they just used to being near people?

Hi Jerry, thanks for your comment!
These bats are pretty easy to get close to and I don't use a hide when filming them. Since I work with long telephotos I don't really need to get too close which is great.
I got some nice footage of Osprey pair preening yesterday from a distance of over 100 meters and it doesn't look bad at all. Will post it in the coming few days.
Cheers mate,
Ofer
